The Smurfs Tales #1: The Smurfs and The Bratty Kid (The Smurfs Graphic Novels, 1)

We rated this book:


The Smurfs have a long history in the entertainment industry. Starting as a Belgian comic franchise by the artist Peyo in 1958, and then a long-running television series on NBC in September 1981–1989, the franchise also includes movies and has active enthusiasts. In The Smurfs Tales, the same lovable Smurfs are in your homes, regardless of whether you have a device to watch them, any day or time.

In this book, the Smurfs are central in three stories, as are the characters Johan and Peewit from the original story that introduced the Smurfs to the world. The initial story revolves around the Smurfs dealing with a spoiled brat of a boy staying with his saintly grandfather. Interspersed through the stories are short comics with the individual Smurfs up to entertaining antics.

The Smurfs Tales is full of color and presented in the original style as in decades before. Reading about the Smurfs, you can’t help but feel very emotional due to the sadness in their stories. After the lengthy comic of the Smurfs with the bratty boy, it is strange to have them take a back seat to Johan and Peewit, but it doesn’t take away from the overall enjoyment of the stories.
