Comics Journal takes a look at new Smurfs books

As ickingly annoying as these little blue people appear in their animated form (a new CGI Smurfs movie is on the way), the comic strips they stem from were pretty good, reports the Comics Journal. Peyo's original Smurfs comics from the 1950s are now being reprinted by Papercutz and I may need to give them a look.

From the Journal:

the Smurf stories I’ve seen so far are sagas for all-ages, and the artwork, a delicious mixture of bigfoot and “little foot,” deploying a Disneyesque passion for visual detail in settings and backgrounds

The Smurfs #1: The Purple SmurfsThe Smurfs #2: The Smurfs and the Magic FluteThe Smurfs #3: The Smurf KingThe Smurfs #4: The SmurfetteThe Smurfs #5: The Smurfs and the EggThe Smurfs #6: The Smurfs and the Howlibird
