In this Little Lulu comic series all the kids go to Tiny Tot summer camp, at first the boys don't want to go! they rather hang around their clubhouse, and play cards or go fishing for the whole summer, until Lulu & her best friend Annie, make them change there minds by getting on there nerves! and thinking that the camp is just for boys only, they wouldn't have to deal with Lulu and the rest of the girls for the rest of the summer, of course it was all a plan by Lulu and Mrs. Tomkins in order to make Tubby and the fellows to pack their bags and head to Camp Tiny Tot! along with the little pest Alvin, Wilbur the richest kid in town, and Gloria, Tubby and the boy's big crush, it's most of all the characters in the comic books, one of the stories in the summer camp segment was "Too Many Buglers" where both Iggy and his twin sister Annie fight over who can be the bugler player at the camp. so...they each steal the other's bugler and little Alvin see's the whole thing, at first he spots Iggy stealing Annie's bugler and vice versa, after seeing what Iggy did, he said. "Wow! Iggy's a crook! I better go and tell Annie, maybe she'll give me some candy! maybe she'll even..."
and then saw Annie stealing his bugler, you know I always wondered what Alvin was going to say before he see's Annie? it could of been, "Maybe she'll give me some candy! maybe she'll even give me a kiss!" but anyway he takes both of their buglers but eventually gets caught!!! I also like the part at the end with Iggy forced to stay in the tent with Alvin, and hearing Alvin play the prisoner's song on his kazoo! "Oh, if I had the wings of an An-gel!" also there's a one with Lulu throwing a Halloween party at her house, and a one with Lulu telling Alvin The Cranky Giant and later dreams he's a cranky giant! I really, really enjoy these classic stories! too bad they don't make cool kid comic books like these anymore.

The back cover blurb for the final volume of Dark Horse's "Little Lulu" reprint series credits the stories therein to "funnymen extraordinaire John Stanley and Irving Tripp." There's no doubt regarding Irving Tripp's contribution (though whether or not his artwork qualifies him as a "funnyman extraordinaire" is another argument). But John Stanley's contribution to the two Dell Giants reprinted in this book is another matter. Stanley was tapering-off his involvement with the "Little Lulu" series in 1958 and may have finished with it then or the next year. Most sources agree that he had no involvement with the Dell Giant series after 1956. Chances are that he had nothing to do with any of the stories credited to him in this volume.

If Stanley had written the stories in "Marge's Little Lulu and Tubby at Summer Camp," they wouldn't be remembered among his best work. If anything, this issue proved that Lulu and her friends functioned best in their little urban world with only occasional forays to nearby woods. Taking Lulu and Tubby and all their friends to summer camp results in nothing but yet another "bratty kids at camp" comic book, and gimmicks like the little men from Mars and Gran'pa Feeb seem all the more contrived.

"Marge's Lulu and Tubby Halloween Fun" is better. The writer or writers competently followed Stanley's model and created a pleasing if not particularly memorable Halloween album. Tripp's artwork is of uniform quality with his Stanley collaborations; the "Bashful Ghost" story in particular showcases the unique "look" he brought to Stanley's scripts. But the overall effect of these two Dell Giant issues is hollow. Stanley's signature plotting and witty dialogue are gone.

I owned both of these Lulu Giants as a kid. I loved them then and I still do. There are a few more Halloween Giants. I wish they could be reproduced along with the Alaska and Hawaii special issues that came out when these states were admitted to the Union.

Well, this Lulu isn't from the greatest period, and if you were only buying one it wouldn't be this: but who can buy only one? Congrats to the publishers for keeping it going as long as they have, and a pity that there can't be another 29 to come.
