Moomin comics

Note! These comics are in Finnish unless mentioned otherwise!

"Moomin (swe. Mumin or Mumintrollen, fin. Muumipeikko) is a comic strip created by Tove Jansson, and followed up by Lars Jansson.

The very first comic strip was a short-lived attempt for the children's section of the Finland-Swedish leftist newspaper Ny Tid, written between 1947-1948, by request on the editor and personal friend, Atos Wirtanen. The series was published with two new strips weekly, and was mainly an adaptation of Comet in Moominland. The series has been reprinted in book form, by the newspaper.

The main series of Moomin-comic strips were made directly for the English market: they were spread by the British Associated Newspapers comic strip syndicate and the original publisher was the newspaper Evening News. At its best Moomin appeared in over 40 countries and around 120 papers, with over 20 million readers daily. This makes it the most successful Finnish comic strip ever. Tove and Lars Jansson received the Finnish Comic Strip Association's "Puupää-hattu" hat in 1980. This series originally appeared in newspapers 1954–1975.

In the 1990s, a comic book version of the Moomin was produced in Scandinavia after the animated series were shown on television. Neither Tove nor Lars Jansson had any involvement in this."
