Image for Fantasy/Whimsey Comics And Books

Although at first sight the Fantasy and Whimsey category does not look like a very promising ground for an adult read. This is certainly not the case.

In these pages reside the work of one of the greatest comic book artists, Walt Kelly. The Adventures Of Peter Wheat and Peter Wheat News feature much of his art and are must read.

Another master, Charles Biro, shows another side to his work with Poppo of the Popcorn Theatre.

Other highlights include all three issues of the short lived run from the radio show Let's Pretend and a wealth of fairy tales and fables.

One little word of warning, be careful not to trip over the pixies running around.

We have 38 titles and 340 issues in our 'Fantasy/Whimsey Category' for you to enjoy.
