Written and illustrated by John Stanley
(Dark Horse, 2010)
One of the best-crafted humor comic strips of the 1950s and '60s, "Little Lulu," written and illustrated by the great John Stanley, is an undiluted joy. The gags and ideas don't vary much from issue to issue -- Lulu and her friends get into mischief in a variety of ways -- but it's the delivery that's so wonderful. Once you've got the basic premise, these comics are so much fun to read. Like Charles Schulz's "Peanuts," "Little Lulu" is a showcase for a master artist at work. Like Schulz, Stanley had a marvelously understated cartooning style -- the clarity and economy of his illustrations are half the joy of this series. Plus, Lulu and those kids are such stinkers! "Little Lulu" never shies away from the naughty, chaotic side of childhood, and that's what makes these stories so compelling, even decades later. For the last year or so, Dark Horse has upped its game and is putting these collected editions out in glorious full color. I have made a point of buying every issue: it's my most sincere hope that they will make enough money on the new color volumes that someday they'll be able to go back and reissue the first dozen-and-a-half volumes in color as well... I got them all in B&W, but I'd love to see them in color, too...
"Little Lulu" was a first-class comic strip, and this is a first-class restoration project: pick any of these books up and you will not be disappointed. I promise. (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain book reviews)
