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.
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.Read more ›
