The Smurfs Anthology by Peyo, Peyo, Matt Murray, Yvan Delporte

One of Peyo's most iconic smurfs, the Astrosmurf, gets the deluxe ANTHOLOGY treatment. Fifty years ago, mankind set off into outer space. Now, a smurf sets foot on another planet...or does he? Could it possibly be a smurfspiracy to fool Dreamy Smurf into becoming the Astrosmurf? Or has Dreamy Smurf gone where no Smurf has gone before? Also featuring The Smurfs and the Howlibird and The Cursed Land, a Johan and Peewit story appearing here in a U.S. edition for the first time! The Smurfs have delighted us all with their silliness, bravery, heroism, and heart for over 50 years, and now we finally have a definitive collection of Peyo's original comics to see where it all began.

About the Author

PIERRE CULLIFORD, born in Belgium in 1928, was the cartoonist known as Peyo. After leaving school in Brussels, he looked for a job and found two that caught his eye: dental assistant and illustrator. After arriving 15 minutes late for the dental assistant job, he was left with only one option! Peyo quickly found himself working with some of Belgium's most talented cartoonists, including his lifelong writing partner Yvan Delporte. He eventually got the break he deserved when he started working for Le Journal de Spirou. Johan and Peewit were among his most popular characters. In 1958, The Smurfs made their first appearance and went on to become the world-famous characters we know and love today.
