Learn why generations of readers have considered Little Lulu one of smartest, cutest, and funniest comics ever to hit the shelves in the newest volume of Dark Horse’s ongoing effort to collect this seminal all-ages classic in a library of affordable trade paperbacks.
Lulu Moppet is the true-blue daughter of Main Street America, clever and sweet, mischievous and generous, an eight-year-old hero for anyone who ever wanted to bring
home a gorilla, scare the pants off of ghosts, and outwit every grownup in sight. In this volume, comics geniuses John Stanley and Irving Tripp are at their very best, crafting tales guaranteed to thrill kids just as much as they crack-up their parents.
When Dell first published Little Lulu’s funny-book adventures they were immediate
bestsellers, no one had ever seen such wit and grace between the comics pages. Now,
relive that magic with this whopping collection of tales filled with truth, laughs, and a
grand old time!
“Little Lulu was one of my favorite comics as a kid. Simple enough for kids to enjoy,
but hip enough to make grownups laugh out loud, it’s one of the great unsung comics.”
— Harvey Pekar, creator of American Splendor
“These little gems are timeless models of wry humor and unsurpassed comic timing . . .
Like Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes, they create an entire kids’ universe of secret
clubhouses, favorite soda fountain hangouts, and fantastic menaces.” — Publishers
