The Smurfs Anthology, Vol. 1

Written by Peyo & Yvan Delporte
The Smurfs Anthology, Vol. 1
(Papercutz, June 2013)

When the Belgian cartoonist Peyo created a village of cute little woodland creatures for his heroes Johan and Peewit to discover, he couldn’t have known that they would wildly outgrow those humble origins to become a worldwide phenomenon all on their own. More than 50 years later, The Smurfs continue to delight us all with their silliness, bravery, heroism, and heart, and now we finally have a definitive collection of Peyo’s original comics to see where it all began.

Reviews:

“Entertaining and endearing.”— School Library Journal

“Cartooning’s craftsmanship at its height.”— The Comics Journal

"Remarkably timeless." — Newsarama

"Any story with the Smurfs will elicit a nostalgic feel, but this will also bring in new fans." — No Flying, No Tights
