Popeye #5 variant cover by John Byrne. Colors by Len O’Grady. 2012.

John Byrne and the story behind this image:

IDW is doing Popeye, and Chris Ryall asked if I would be up for a cover. The first thing that popped into my mind was something I knew would not get approved on any level, but I went ahead and drew it for my own amusement.

And now, hopefully, for yours.

THIS IS NOT A REAL COVER.

REPEAT: THIS IS NOT A REAL COVER!!!

6 days later John added this:

Well blow me down!

Chris Ryall, resourceful swab that he is, has talked King Features into letting IDW use the X-Pop piece as an “incentive” cover. So it will be appearing on the POPEYE comic after all!
