MOOMIN 2 mentioned by Daily Camera
"Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip — Book Two." The sweet, surreal 1950s comic strip drawn by Finnish artist Jannson for a London newspaper gets a second high-quality compilation from comics publisher Drawn and Quarterly. Whether competing in whimsical winter sports, feuding with anal-retentive neighbors (by inviting them to a surprise party, natch) or trying to enjoy the pleasures of nature, Jansson's oddly appealing characters take on life's travails with sensitivity and good humor, in lush panels that rival the best of children's illustration.
