One of the best comic books of all time, now in full color and just as funny as ever!

Lulu Moppet is back with even more outlandish adventures and misadventures, as cartoonist John Stanley settles into kooky and entertaining suburban storylines starring Lulu, Tubby, Alvin, and the rest of the gang.

Lulu is a strong, assertive young girl who is both entertaining and empowering to girls and women of all ages--even if she sometimes finds herself in hot water. In Little Lulu: The Hooky Team, she outsmarts criminals who mistake her for a wealthy young girl, gets into hijinks during a day at the beach, and plays hooky--but only by accident! Over the course of these stories, Stanley excels at visual gags, from Lulu using a pencil sharpener on lipstick to a disgruntled Alvin being flocked by girls after trying his mother's perfume.

This is the second instalment in Drawn & Quarterly's landmark reprint series of the classic John Stanley comic strip that was first published by Dell Comics in the 1940s and '50s. Little Lulu: The Hooky Team will delight longtime fans of the series and new readers alike.

John Stanley was a journeyman comics scripter from the 1940s through the 1960s. He's most famous for his 14-year run on the Little Lulu comics published by Dell. He is considered by many comics historians to be the most consistently funny and idiosyncratic writer to ever work in comics. During his comics career he also wrote original scripts for the licensed characters Nancy and Sluggo, Tubby, Woody Woodpecker, Deputy Dawg, Clyde Crashcup, Choo Choo Charlie, Raggedy Ann and Andy, Oswald the Rabbit, Andy Panda, Krazy Kat, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Nellie the Nurse.

Toward the end of his career, Stanley launched a series of teen-centric comics—Thirteen Going on Eighteen, Around the Block with Dunc and Loo, and Kookie—as well as his comical 1960s monster craze sendup, Melvin Monster. He left comics over a reprint royalty dispute sometime in the late 1960s never to return. He died in 1993.

?For decades, Little Lulu?s presence on the comics page meant that millions habitually read the adventures of a young girl who consistently bested?outsmarted, outplayed and outmaneuvered?boys.? ?NPR ?John Stanley is one of the funniest and quirkiest creators.? ?The New York Times ?Easily one of the great comics runs of all time.? ?Comics Beat
