S'Matter Pop (Say, Pop!; Nippy's Pop) by CM Payne  (1280-) 1st Appearance 1910 - S'Matter Pop is the story of Pop, a father and husband and his struggles to survive domestic life.  Pop's family, a pestering wife and decidedly undomestic son were the co-stars of the strip.   The strip was exclusively a gag strip.   Each day or week, Pop would be confronted with everyday life, a situation that he was somewhat ill-equipped to handle.    Slightly dull-witted and decidedly unexperienced, Pop's resolutions to his problems would invariably bite him in the end.   Inspite the terribly common theme of the strip, S'Matter Pop still stands out because of the rather unusual and quite superior artwork.   Payne's characters were portrayed with exaggerated dimensions which have a decided eye-catching appeal.    Unfortunately, those character portrayals were exclusively confined to self-imposed standard cartoon blocks, which limits the effect.   The market for S'Matter Pop is moderate.   Collectors gravitate to Full-color fulls when available.  Daily sell a little slower than the sunday version.
