Kim Thompson, Publisher of Fantagraphics, has confirmed on the Comics Journal message boards that the company will collect the Popeye daily and Sunday strips in six hardcover volumes.  The first volume will be released in September.

Popeye Volume 1:  I Yam What I Yam will contain mostly daily strips, six per page, and color Sundays in the back of the book.  Each volume thereafter will be roughly half and half, dailies and color Sunday strips (again in the back), with one scheduled every six months.

Bill Blackbeard will supply introductions and annotations.  A non-Segar Popeye sequence that Thompson believes has never been reprinted will appear in a later volume.
