Step up, Lars!

Hitting stores now is our SIXTH volume of our best selling Moomin series. I think these books caught us all by surprise--even longtime fans of Tove's chapter books didn't expect the strips to be so well done. And they really are a blast.
Initially, we only planned to do the five volume Tove set but as time went on and we received more and more requests to continue into the Lars books we thought, "well, we should read these Lars strips and see what everyone is talking about." And you know what, they really are great comics too. Has there ever been an instance of a family member taking over a comic strip and doing a solid job of it? Not the typical story behind legacy strips at all. But Lars' strips really are fun. They are kind of more adventure focused than Tove's but lack none of her satirical and iconoclastic edge. I do think his first couple of strips he did with Tove showed him getting a handle on how to write a comic but by the time he takes over writing and drawing in volume 6, he's really got it together.
More great comics out in the world!
