Pipii Longstocking The Strongest in the World! by Astrid Lindgren, Ingrid Van Nyman

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
