AUG063270H Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip vol. 1 hc, 9"x12", 96pg, B&W $19.95
by Tove Jansson
Jansson's self-illustrated stories for children aren't exactly furry--the Moomintrolls, the Fillyjonk, the Hattnifatteners and other characters aren't human, exactly, but they're not any identifiable animals either. I'd say they *feel* furry, so I include the book.
'This is the enchanting comic strip that introduced adult readers to the wonderful world of Moomin. . . . The Moomins saw life in many forms but debuted to their biggest audience ever on the pages of world's largest newspaper, the *London Evening News*, in 1954. The strip was syndicated in newspapers around the world with millions of readers in 40 countries. Moomin: Volume 1 is the first volume of Drawn & Quarterly's publishing plan to reprint the entire strip drawn by Jansson before she handed over the reins to her brother Lars in 1960.'

'Tony Millionaire's Maakies is one of the best and most popular weekly comic strips in America, running in over a dozen of the largest U.S. weekly newspapers including the Village Voice, L.A Weekly and Seattle's The Stranger. The strip is currently being developed for the Cartoon Network's popular Adult Swim. . . . Premillenial Maakies is a newly designed edition of the long out-of-print first Maakies collection, featuring the first five years of the strip, re-formatted in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape hardcover format that complements the strip's elegant and classical style.'
