Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip by Tove Jansson
Moomin.... He's an interesting hippo-like creature who simply wants to live in peace, plant potatoes, and dream. And yet, he is constantly getting into scrapes -- housing his relatives, meeting snork-maiden, getting rich, going broke, helicoptoring, meeting pirates, camping out, and so on. He lives quite a bewildering life, considering he only wants a simple life.
A delightful fare of imagination, charm, wit, melancholy, and fantasy, this classic from the London Evening News is a lovely read.
Y GRAPHIC NOV Jansson
What kind of magic have you found on the web recently? I'm admittedly a little behind -- I just barely saw the Chevy's new hybrid vehicle (like a Batmobile brother) and the iPhone. I've been spending too much time prepping my wiki for public display. Let me know if you see something promising!
