This Moomin-comic stands out from Jansson's other Moomin-comics. In this comic Moomins are a bit rougher and the story seems familiar, but it can surprise you in a good way.
I liked this one a lot and I'm hoping to get it as my own really soon.

Sarjakuvan tarina on tuttu Pyrstötähti-kirjasta, mitä nyt loppuratkaisua oli muutettu. Eniten minua viehättivät piirrokset, jotka tuntuivat olevan vielä hieman esimuumimaisia verrattuna myöhemmin ilmestyneisiin muumisarjakuviin.

Прекрасная книга для любителей муми-троллей. Здесь приведён первый комикс Туве Янссон (который она писала для крохотной шведской газеты, за четыре года до большого семилетнего контракта с Associated Press) по мотивам своей повести "Комета прилетает" - очаровательная приключенческая, и в то же время апокалиптичная история, а также знакомство главных героев друг с другом и с читателем. Милые герои, лёгкие нотки скандинавской меланхолии, неожиданно острый юмор - всё на месте.
