'The Smurfs: The Village Behind the Wall' by Peyo tells some new stories about a new group of Smurfs.
Most of the original Smurfs are male Smurfs. This book introduces a whole village of female Smurfs. After getting some bios of the new Smurfs (Smurfstorm, Smurfblossom, etc.), we get a series of short stories, including how Brainy Smurf finds this new village. These Smurfs camouflage themselves with leaves and seem to be threatened by the things in the forest around them. Giant (to Smurfs) carnivorous plants, etc.
The original creator of The Smurfs, Peyo, is no longer with us, but I appreciate that he is still honored here. Also included is an excerpt from the original story that introduced the Smurfs back in 1958. That was a fun thing to have here. I'm not the biggest Smurf fan on the planet, but I enjoyed reading these stories.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Papercutz and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
