Not mini-comics, but I couldn't resist.

Fantagraphics to publish E.C. Segar's Popeye beginning in September.
Kim Thompson says the cover is just a mock-up and that the covers will be designed by Jacob Covey, who did an excellent job with the Fanta pin-up books.

Thanks to Tom at Comics Reporter for his always sharp eye for these kinds of things. And big thanks to Fantagraphics for recognizing the value in these amazing old strips, and for actually doing something with them so we can enjoy them.

I think it's great that all of these classic comic strip collections are mysteriously, spontaneously appearing out of nowhere. Now all we need is The Complete Milt Gross, Barnaby, and Polly and her Pals. (This makes it sound like they should all be in the same book, which I didn't mean at all, but I guess maybe that would be both a little insane and a little convenient.)
