Synopsis

Drawn & Quarterly offers a second FCBD title for the first time this year and it will feature one of our most beloved and popular characters, MOOMIN! The Moomin Color Special will offer a sneak peak at the brand new Moomin books, in color for the first time, that D+Q will publish in Fall 2012. The Moomin characters were created by Tove Jansson and have developed a dedicated fan base of both children and adults for over six decades. The comics presented here were originally published in b/w and have now been re-colored by Drawn & Quarterly, with careful consideration of Tove's palette. This will be the perfect All Ages comic book, ideal for developing a new readership of kids in the 6 to 12 age set. As a special bonus, this FCBD will also feature a 2nd preview of a new D+Q book, Anna & Froga, by Anouk Ricard.

Free Comic Book Day went a little high-brown with this unique collection of European comics. Moomin is Norwegian (I think) and it involves a group of strange looking animals who wake up to find their tiny valley turned into a feriocious jungle. Then there's the bizarre pairing of a little girl named Anna and her frog friend, Froga. Both stories are full of unique absract art, curious plotlines, and experimental angles and color palettes. If you are used to strictly American comics, they can be a little odd. There's a lot of direct corellation between emotion and the way the scenes are drawn, similarly to action scenes in Japanese Manga.

I didn't dig Moomin, but I had a blast reading the back up story to my 2 year old!
