Popeye Plays GURPS . . . Kind Of
Popeye is known for many things: being a sailor, being tough, saving Olive Oyl, and now . . . playing tabletop roleplaying games? Yes, indeed! In Popeye's recent Sunday adventure, he and the gang take on a dragon in SURPS (Steve's Universal RolePlaying System). If that sounds suspiciously like GURPS, it should, as artist Randy Milholland is a longtime friend of and contributor to Steve Jackson Games. You may have seen his work on classic Munchkin cards like Rocks Fall and Everyone Dies from Munchkin Reloaded and Redneck Tree from Munchkin 3 – Clerical Errors.
Thanks to Randy for the homage in such a legendary comic strip! We sure hope Popeye and friends will go on some future fantasy adventures in SURPS . . .
