The companion series to Stanley's career defining Little Lulu
Meet Tubby Tomkins, a mischievous gourmand, rabble rouser and schemer who, along with neighborhood buddies The Fellers, is continually at odds with the belligerent and thwarting West Side Boys headed by Wilbur Van Snobbe, the rich trickster who always gets the girl Tubby likes, Gloria Darling. From clubhouse standoffs to pogo stick time machines, the day is rarely long enough for the hilarious escapades and witty shenanigans that divert and preoccupy the epicurean Tubby and his pals. Consistently humorous and engaging, Tubby is a spirited voyage through the prototypal works of a preeminent storyteller.
Tubby is the latest title in Drawn & Quarterly's extensive reprinting of the work of 1960s cartoonist John Stanley, and it is elegantly designed by Canadian cartoonist Seth. Tubby collects issues 9 through 12 of the classic strip chronicling the tales of its namesake protagonist and is an offshoot from the wildly popular Little Lulu, Stanley's career-defining work.
