Moomin : Volume 1

Moomin : Volume 1

Dessins et textes de Tove Jansson.

Année d'écriture : 1953
Parution : Décembre 2006
Editeur : Drawn & Quarterly

Description :
Tove Jansson is revered around the world as one of the foremost children’s authors of the twentieth century for her illustrated chapter books regarding the magical worlds of her creation, the Moomins. The Moomins saw life in many forms but debuted to its biggest audience ever on the pages of the world’s largest newspaper, the London Evening News, in 1954. The strip was syndicated in newspapers around the world with millions of readers in forty countries. Moomin Book One is the first volume of Drawn & Quarterly’s publishing plan to reprint the entire strip drawn by Jansson before she handed over the reins to her brother Lars in 1960. This is the first time the strip will be published in any form in North America and will deservedly place Jansson among the international cartooning greats of the last century.
The Moomins are a tight-knit family–hippo-shaped creatures with easygoing and adventurous outlooks. Jansson’s art is pared down and precise, yet able to compose beautiful portraits of ambling creatures in fields of flowers or on rock-strewn beaches that recall Jansson’s Nordic roots. The comic strip reached out to adults with its gentle and droll sense of humor. Whimsical but with biting undertones, Jansson’s observations of everyday life, including guests who overstay their welcome, modern art, movie stars, and high society, easily caught the attention of an international audience and still resonate today.

 
Moomin : Volume 2

Moomin : Volume 2

Dessins et textes de Tove Jansson.

Année d'écriture : 1953
Parution : Octobre 2007
Editeur : Drawn & Quarterly

Description :
In the second volume of Tove Jansson’s humorous yet melancholic Moomin comic strip, we get four new stories about jealousy, competition, child rearing, and self-reinvention. The Moomins try to hibernate in the fashion of their ancestors but insomnia places them smack-dab into a winter carnival with the winter-sports-loving Mr. Brisk. The fickle and eternally lovestruck Mymble and Snorkmaiden find themselves in competition over a thrilling new man. Moominmamma meets her new neighbor, the Fillyjonk, causing her to hire the depressed and secretive Misabel as her new maid. Mymble’s mother arrives on the Moomin family’s doorstep with her seventeen new children. Finally, a prophet arrives on the scene declaring that the happy Moomins are in fact not happy at all and need to get back to nature and be free. Moomin, of course, becomes more and more miserable the freer he gets.

 
Moomin : Volume 3

Moomin : Volume 3

Dessins et textes de Tove Jansson.

Année d'écriture : 1953
Parution : 30 septembre 2008
Editeur : Drawn & Quarterly

Description :
Moomin has been swiftly making its way into the hearts of North Americans ever since Drawn & Quarterly began collecting the strip in 2006. It debuted in the London Evening News in 1954 and has become the fastest-selling D+Q series to date. Fifty years ago, Tove Jansson’s observations of everyday life—whimsical but with biting undertones—easily caught the attention of an international audience and still resonate today.
This third volume returns to Moominvalley, where its beloved inhabitants get tangled up in five new stories. Moomin falls in love with a damsel in distress, an unseasonably warm spell turns the valley into a tropical rain forest, and a flying saucer crashes into Moominmamma’s garden. Moominpappa decides to live out his dream of occupying a lighthouse and writing a great seaside novel, only to discover that he hates the sea so close up and has no interest in writing about it, and a variety of curious clubs spring up in the valley. Moomin and Moominmamma do their level best to avoid the whole mess but, of course, get drawn into the muddle.

 
Moomin : Volume 4

Moomin : Volume 4

Dessins et textes de Tove Jansson.

Année d'écriture : 1953
Parution : 30 juin 2009
Editeur : Drawn & Quarterly

Description :
Drawn & Quarterly’s bestselling Moomin series created by the legendary children’s author Tove Jansson is now in its fourth installment and is the winner of the Harvey Award and has been nominated for multiple Eisner Awards.

“Moomin is about freedom, tolerance, and optimism amid frustration, loss, and fear. One of its poignancies is that it not only serves as the vehicle of Jansson’s progressive philosophical ideologies…but that she is also able to suture her own autobiography and philosophy into the simple allegorical model of a cartoon.” —Modern Painters

“The Moomin family strays far from the tranquil charms of Moominvalley: on the French Riviera, Moominpappa gets drunk and Moomin's sweetheart, the Snork Maiden, is seduced by a toothy film star. But then the hattifatteners appear-mute, sock-like animals that grow from seeds and chase after electric storms...Here is where Jansson's weird but true world begins; where fear, loneliness and insecurity are banished by love and the force of imagination.” —Time.com

“[Jansson’s] strips, more than 800 in five years, stand as perennial classics of children's literature across the Nordic lands...Their belated recovery from crumbling newsprint into five eventual volumes seems almost as fantastical and life-affirming as the Moomin fables themselves.” —The Independent

 
Moomin : Volume 4

Moomin : Volume 5 (A paraître)

Dessins et textes de Tove Jansson.

Année d'écriture : 1953
Parution : Printemps 2010
Editeur : Drawn & Quarterly

Description :
Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic, Book Five features the final strips drawn by Tove Jansson and written by her brother Lars for the London Evening News, before Lars took over both the art and writing. The first “Moomin Winter” returns with more unwanted guests of BOOK ONE, especially the curious and secret spilling Nibling sending the Moomin household into a tizzy of secrecy and closed doors. In “Moomin Under Sail,” the Moomins find themselves without a new adventure until Too-Ticky’s compass gives them the idea to build a boat and head to sea. Finally, we meet the Fuddler in “Fuddler’s Courtship.” Mymble captures poor Fuddler’s heart and his bumbling drives her straight into the arms of Dr. Hatter, local psychiatrist. Delightfully quirky, the Moomin family does not fare well under the gaze of someone trained in correcting odd behavior.
