beecourse  asked:

were the original moomin comics newspaper comics? and when was the first one made? my father pointed out that in my book, the moomins looked like the newspaper strips he would see as a kid. i am often told that they were made in the 1920s, but i coukd be wrong for plastic was invented in the 60s and they spoke about plastic covers for furniture. thank u!

Tove Jansson was born in 1914, so it would have been quite impossible for her to draw professional comics in the 1920s. :)

Moomin comic strips were created for the British daily magazine Evening News, starting from 1954. Tove wrote the comics alone and together with her brother Lars until 1959. Lars continued the series until 1975. The comic strip was sold to over 40 countries.
