The classic children's comic strip in a handsome new archival series, designed by Seth

John Stanley is celebrated as one of the great children's comics writers for his work on the Little Lulu series. In fact, the Lulu work is a small part of his output; he drew and continued to write many other comics--notably his work on the 1960s teen comics from Dell ( Thirteen , Dunc and Loo , and Kookie ) and his monster comedy strip, Melvin Monster .

Drawn & Quarterly is planning to launch an extensive reprinting of much of Stanley's work in discrete volumes. The first in this series is the two-volume Melvin Monster collection featuring all ten issues about the oddball monster boy who just wants to be good, go to school, and do as he's told. Designed to fit nicely with Drawn & Quarterly's reprinting of Tove Jansson's Moomin series, these comics are great reading for all ages. Stanley's reputation as a great storyteller and visual comedian is richly deserved--few golden- or silver-age comics stand the test of time the way these comics do.
