Fortunately, Tubby had enough substance to justify a series. These longer adventures, however, are markedly different and stranger than the typical "Little Lulu" stories. Indeed, these longer adventures have more in common with Lulu's surreal "poor little girl" stories told to Alvin. The "Captain Yo-Yo" story from Four Color #381 looks the most like a typical "Lulu" story because it was inked by John Stanley's frequent collaborator, Irving Tripp. The story itself is funny but grows increasingly strange and almost grim (always with one foot firmly in whimsy).
The remaining stories in this volume were inked by Stanley himself. Each puts Tubby into complicated situations that test his resourcefulness as well as his supply of dumb luck. First appearances of the "little men from Mars" and "Grandpa Feeb" are included in this volume. The latter character launches a parody of the old "captives of the Indians" dime novel stories that borrows so much from its source that it's a bit of an embarrassment; to their credit, Dark Horse has printed the story in its entirety with no editorial intrusion except a small disclaimer at the bottom of the first page.Read more ›
