Publisher's Insight:

...[This] is a reprint of a comic strip published in Sunday Pix in 1952 by the David C. Cook company. I loved it as a child. I still love it today. I reprinted it because in this day and age of increasingly 'adult' comic books, we need some comic books for children.

Single copies are $4.99 plus $3 shipping, or can be downloaded from amazon.com [link above] for the Kindle Fire. Orders from churches for their Sunday school classes, or from Christian book stores, can get a 40% discount on orders of ten or more copies or a 50% discount on orders of 100 or more copies. On these discounted orders, I pay shipping. I can accept checks [email me] at the address above, or payment to f.norwood@att.net for [PayPal payment].


I've put off this review for quite some time. It's been weighing on my heart to give such a poor review to something that should be a good step for Christian children and parents.

But I pride myself in giving the most honest reviews I can without being cruel, so that is why this has taken so long.

The idea of Tullus was a great thing, and I'm sure that back in the 50's it would have been a little more relevant, but I can't see a child of today's day and age picking this up and being drawn into it. They would take one look (and read) of it and quit after several pages, much as I wanted to do.

I applaud Nick Norwood for taking on this project and trying to reach out to the Christian children of the world, but I feel that this was not the way to do it.

If a comic from the 50's is something that you would enjoy, please don't let this review sway you from trying this comic because it may bring back some nostalgia for you and bring you joy.
