Mr. Elephant & Mrs. Grey

 

 

Safaris are a drag! Gawking tourists who arrive in droves at the waterhole. But somehow these naked monkeys in their noisy jeeps have a little something. When the gazelle Mrs. Grey and her friend Mr. Elephant meet a curious black flat beetle who introduces himself to them as Siri, a great adventure begins for them.  

Siri shows them pictures from the world of tourists: Stores, streets, the big train in the mouse tunnel called "Ubahn". Oh, how the gazelle and the elephant would love to go there one day!

Jeppe Out and About

 

When the king asks him to be his messenger, the good-natured Jeppe dashes off into the hills, only to be stopped every so often, because, well, he just can't help it. If there's an animal in need, like the old squirrel or the exhausted mom of eight, he has to do something. And something else. And one more thing. Until it's rather late for his message to arrive…

The Invisible Spaceship

 

A most unusual space adventure: the crew of the Invisibility 2 discovers that it's easy to turn on the new invisibility drive, but quite harder to turn it off again, since everything on board is invisible now, buttons and switches included. The situation worsens because they cannot move their ship out of the nebula, have to deal with old archenemies and even sticky hair balls, regugitated by technical officer Honk.

 

This is quite a different comic book!

 

There's not much to see (SOME wonderful panels by KISTE („Box“) artist Uwe Heidschötter are included, though), but so much to imagine as the readers follow the word balloons and funny sounds Patrick Wirbeleit and Andrew Matthews came up with for this very hilarious story.

Gorm Grimm. Big, strong, hungry

 

As great as finding new friends is: if your new companion is a big, bold, not-too-bright viking torn out of his own time, there's gonna be trouble! And it´s trouble Julius gets when his new friend encounters cars, strange modern devices, that can take your picture – and delicious wildlife.

 

This funny story reverses traditional roles, where the grown-up is impulsive and the kid has to try to be the reasonable one.

Beautifully drawn by Kim Schmidt (Die drei ??? Kids) and written by Patrick Wirbeleit (Box), this is truly a joy to read.
