Moomin!

Two weeks ago, we got this cute little 5 Minute Marvel from Helena Juhasz (http://helenajuhaszillustration.blogspot.com/) the author/artist of the kid’s comic Stumpwater. We’d not spoken before, but she sent along this note and introduced the girls and I to the world of Moomin, of which we’d never heard.

“I just drew one of my comic heros from the Finnish strip: The Moomins. Is it ok it’s not a traditional super-hero? He is a troll, though. I think that makes him super! 😉   Helena Juhasz “

Thanks, Helena! We had fun.

Snarked!

The girls enjoy Roger Langridge’s Muppet Comics and I am a totally unabashed fan of Thor: The Mighty Avenger, which Roger created with our pal, Chris Samnee. It’s one of the best books over the last decade … and it’s all-ages.

Roger’s latest ventures are reviving Popeye and his own, Snarked!, inspired by the Alice in Wonderland books. We drew two of his main characters – Princess Scarlett and Prince Russell – and had a lot of fun. I think Grace, especially, did a great job capturing Scarlett’s personality.
