Marge's Little Lulu: Volume 1

Marge's Little Lulu: Volume 1 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Long before the days of pint-sized, chemically powered, supergirl trios, there was one very special little girl who earned generations of fans and helped make the world a better place using only her natural smarts, her big heart, and a healthy dose of sass. Whether she's outsmarting Tubby and his fellow "Boys Only Club" members in the name of fairness and equality, weaving hilarious tall tales to entertain the irascible tot Alvin, or simply using her keen wit to think her way out of a million impossible situations, Little Lulu remains one of the most lovable comic-book heroines ever. As fresh and funny today as they were decades ago, these classic comics will keep you laughing and reading for ages.

Review:

"Originally created for the pages of the Saturday Evening Post by cartoonist Marge, Little Lulu achieved classic status in her comic book adventures. Written and laid out by John Stanley, with finished art by Irving Tripp, these little gems are timeless models of wry humor and unsurpassed comic timing as they explore the foibles of human nature. Dark Horse has thankfully made these stories available again in a series of trade paperbacks. Stanley's stories are told from a child's perspective, and like Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes, they create an entire kids' universe of secret clubhouses, favorite soda fountain hangouts and fantastic menaces. As readers mature, they get the full force of Stanley's sly, deadpan humor. Lulu Moppet is a great heroine — she's vulnerable enough to burst into tears when she overhears the boys running down her looks, but self-reliant enough to realize after a makeover that great beauty can cause more trouble than it's worth. Her nemesis and playmate is Tubby Tompkins, a troublemaker in the Bart Simpson/Crayon Shinchan mold who leaves destruction and confusion in his wake. These stories provide a quaint window into a world where a dime could buy a milkshake, and their universal insights and humor should win over new audiences."
