Easter Eggs in Comics: Popeye in Marvels #1

Welcome to another installment of Easter Eggs in Comics! Click here for the archive!

In Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross's Marvels, we see the Marvel Universe through news photographer Phil Sheldon's eyes. It was their first high-profile project, and the project that catapulted them both into superstardom.

As was typical of Ross, this series had its fair share of Easter Eggs. For example, when Captain America first appears, he's the subject of a lot of news broadcasts. The reporters interview the man in the street. So who should one of the interviewees turn out to be?

That's right, it's the one and only Popeye the Sailor Man!

Is that awesome or what?
