Moomin: The Complete Lars Jansson Comic Strip, Book Nine

Lars Jansson

Moomin: The Complete Lars Jansson Comic Strip, Volume 9 welcomes readers back to the beloved world of Moominvalley, where pancakes and jam are a perfectly acceptable supper and a damsel in distress can live in a pre-fabricated castle. The ninth volume of Tove and Lars Jansson’s classic comic strip features the beloved “Fuddler and Married Life” story. Together, the four stories in this collection display the poignancy, whimsy, and philosophical bent that constitute the Moomins’ enduring appeal.

Moomin: The Complete Lars Jansson Comic Strip, Book Seven

Lars Jansson

RETURN TO MOOMIN VALLEY IN THE SEVENTH VOLUME OF THE CLASSIC COMIC BY LARS JANSSON

In this volume of the Complete Lars Jansson comic strip, Lars’s work, already quite polished, takes on a joie de vivre heretofore unseen. The Moomins rebel once more against hibernation, receive an inheritance they’re unprepared for, find colonization a bit of a bore, and decide once and for all that seashells are much prettier than gold nuggets. With familiar jabs aimed at Moomin leg length and somewhat less familiar ones aimed at capitalism and colonial politics, Jansson’s comics are timeless treasures for the whole family.

Moomin: The Complete Lars Jansson Comic Strip, Book Six

Lars Jansson

June 2011

After the multifaceted Tove Jansson quit the daily grind of the newspaper comic strip, the reins were picked up by her younger brother, Lars, who--not being an artist--taught himself how to draw so that he could continue bringing the Moomin charm to millions of readers around the world. He wrote and drew the strip from 1961-1974. Without missing a beat, the transition from Tove to Lars was seamless. The delightful and gentle skewering of life's foibles continues with such antics as Moomin becoming a vegetarian; the genie from a magic lamp delivering stolen diamonds; a railway through Moominvalley turning into a roller coaster; and, of course, hijinks with international spies invading Moominvalley.

Moomin: The Complete Lars Jansson Comic Strip, Book Eight

Lars Jansson

GET SHIPWRECKED WITH MOOMIN IN THE EIGHTH VOLUME OF THE BELOVED MOOMIN HARDCOVER SERIES

Lars Jansson returns with the eighth volume of the classic Moomin hardcover comic series, and the whole gang is back in action. Sniff is causing trouble with another of his get-rich-quick schemes, Snorkmaiden falls in love with the inspector's bad boy nephew, and Moominmamma is offering up plum cake to whosoever should need it. As always, the experiences of the Moomin family are poignant, melancholy, and strangely wise, with just a dash of drolly funny and a pinch of slapstick. Without a doubt, Lars Jansson's Moomin Volume Eight is a treat for the whole family.
