Pippi is the Strongest

    |    

These comics are one of those great rarities (like Moomin) where the comic version of the prose classic is handled by the original creative team. So Astrid Lindgren reworked her now very famous stories into comics form and original Pippi illustrator Ingrid Vang Nyman draw those comics. Not only do the comics retain the same hilarious spirit as the books but they’re fascinating for seeing Vang Nyman quickly work out the comics language and make interesting choices like shrinking the lanky Pippi down to a stubby little kid so she could fit in the comics panels.
