The stories about Moomin and his relations and friends are one of those rare works of literature that are equally enjoyable by children and adults all over the world. Drawn and Quarterly is just releasing the first volume of the complete syndicated comic strips that author Tove Jansson illustrated until 1960 that center around the same Moomin troll family as her books did (which she also illustrated).
These stories are perfectly suited for the comic medium, and it was a total surprise to me that these strips existed because I had only known the stories in their book form while growing up. Drawn and Quarterly has also been publishing one strip a day on their website and you can read more than 90 as a preview. The wonderful thing about Tove’s work is that it has such a simple, appealing and original design and that her stories and characters are funny, engaging, twisted and real. You can pre-order/ order the book on Amazon or your local shop. Super highly recommended!
