What started as a book series and comic strip in the 40s and 50s has grown to a phenomenon with theme parks in Finland and Japan. At Black Cat Records and Comics in Dallas, TX, we’ve recently added new editions of the graphic novels to our stock, and you can check out this whimsical, and at times, dark, series for yourself. There’s a reason these stories have stayed so popular for so long!
A Worldwide Phenomena
The stories follow a central family of three hippo-like creatures, Moominpappa, Moominmamma, and Moomintroll, but also encompasses the whole of Moominvalley, with tons of popular characters like Little My, Sniff, Hemulens, and Snufkin. Throughout these stories, more characters get to know the core family and join in their adventures. The series was written and illustrated by Tove Jansson, and many of her characters were based on people she knew and despite the whimsical nature of the illustrations and stories, often dealt with war, depression, and other serious subjects. These stories are satirical, brilliant, and celebrate nature and diversity. There’s a good reason they’ve maintained their popularity for over 50 years, and are celebrated worldwide.
