Tove Jannson

Tove Jannson was, according to what I've heard, not so big in the U.S., but really big in Europe. This is our loss.

Artist Adam McCauley posts at the Drawger site about Jannson's influence, with a couple of great scans. Go look!

A collection of Moomin strips has been translated and Fantagraphics has published them. Are these all actually drawn by her?

Yes, yes they were drawn by her. She was such a brilliant artist, in addition to being a brilliant author. Can't wait to get hold of this one, I love these comics but have never read them in their English original version.
