Pippi Longstocking Vol. 1: Pippi Moves In
Pippi Moves In marks the first time that the legendary Pippi Longstocking comics by famed children's author and creator Astrid Lindgren and Danish illustrator Ingrid Vang Nyman will be published outside of Scandinavia in thirty years, as well as their first ever publication in English. The outspoken strong-girl with the carrot-colored pigtails and the mismatched socks has enthralled generations of children the world over with her fabulous exploits at Villa Villekulla, where she lives with her horse and monkey.The comics are re-imaginings of the classic chapter book stories and were originally published in the Swedish magazine Humpty Dumpty in 1957-1959, a decade after the original books. The comics spotlight both Lindgren's brilliant writing and Vang Nyman's bold bright colors that seem presciently and eerily modern.
