    One thought on “The Smurfs Anthology #1”

    1. Reviewed at My Shelf Confessions“You’re smurfing me!” – Awesome! – It is The Smurfs – what more need be said? OK OK – So I’m a big fan of the The Smurfs from my childhood years. If you are too then you’ll definitely enjoy this anthology. They had a great amount of dialogue considering the size of the comic boxes. It was wonderful to see all of their crazy antics and read it instead of watch in on TV. I could hear in my mind all those little smurfy voices and hear the screams of [...]

    2. When I was a tween attending a French school and library time rolled around, I would head straight to the shelf where those big, sturdy hardcover comic books were located and I would grab any of the numerous “Schtroumpfs” books. I read them all and I loved them! I don’t know if it’s the fantastical nature of these mystical creatures, the diversity in personality types and how their individual characteristics were depicted as strengths, or the on-going battle between the overly optimistic [...]

    3. Have you ever heard of the Smurfs? Well, the Smurfs are mythical creatures that are rarely seen. They are little blue men living in the mushrooms of a forest. The Smurfs were first created in a comic called Johan & Peewit where they made an appearance. The Smurfs got their own comic and have been around for 50 years now! This Anthology of Smurf stories from Papercutz are the original stories in order (plus the book, Johan & Peewit #9, where the Smurfs are introduced)! There are 6 transla [...]

    4. This larger format book is a great overview of the creation of the Smurfs (which started as just a part of this author's Johan and Peewit comic) along with some of the earlier comics. There's even some World War II history involved-- I had no idea! My favorite story line was probably the Smurfs getting bitten by a bug and turning into vampire-type creatures; it was really funny, especially with the proliferation of vampire books today! This would be an excellent addition to any public library co [...]

    5. Good collection of Smurf comics including their introduction in "The Smurfs And The Magic Flute". Although the size was comic book sized and was easy to read I wished that there might have been more stories included. Each section had an introduction and I was disappointed that while they had the opportunity to explain the story behind the original "The Black Smurfs" (the Black Death/Plague) they continued with "The Purple Smurfs" Politically Correct version.

    6. First time reading smurf comics- and I absolutely loved it! The book was huge and did the artwork justice. The stories were fun, imaginative, and captivating. I find it amusing to think that these comics, written in the 60s, can still evoke feelings of wonder to any time and age. I highly look forward to the second anthology coming out later this month.

    7. Smurf zombies, a Smurf dictator, and a Smurf tale from before they had their own comic. Add in some nice explanatory essays and you have about 200 pages of Smurfy goodness. For anyone who grew up watching the Smurfs, like I did, this is a great look at where they came from. Smurf what you're smurfing and smurf your smurf to the smurf to get this book.
