Celebrate the seventieth anniversary of Pippi! Celebrate the seventieth anniversary of Pippi!

Who can rescue babies from a burning building, outwit burglars, overpower a circus strongman, and still get home in time for Christmas? Pippi Longstocking can! Pippi Longstocking: The Strongest in the World! collects more than one hundred pages of comics from Pippi's creator, Astrid Lindgren, and her collaborator, the illustrator Ingrid Vang Nyman.
Unearthed by D+Q and republished between 2011 and 2014, these mid-century comics had never before been seen by North American audiences. Pippi Longstocking: The Strongest in the World! is a fitting tribute to one of the world's most beloved fictional characters.

Astrid Lindgren (1907–2002) was the creator of one of Sweden's most iconic fictional characters, Pippi Longstocking. The Pippi books have been translated into more than sixty languages. Ingrid Vang Nyman (1916–1959) was a noted Danish children's book illustrator, as well as the original illustrator of the Pippi chapter books.

Relying on bold blocks of color and bright, simple designs, [ Pippi Moves In is] mid-century art at its finest." - The Paris Review on the Pippi books

"Wonderfully offbeat Pippi Longstocking comics . . . Buy a copy for your kids, but secretly read it when they're asleep." - USA Today Pop Candy on the Pippi books
