We Are The Smurfs Graphic Novel

On September 1981 the world welcomed small blue humanoids known as the Smurfs. These fictional characters live in quaint little mushroom houses in an enchanted forest. And we fell in love with them. In truth, the Smurfs were created way back in 1958 by Pierre Culliford (Peyo) in Belgium. He created over 100 different Smurf characters with their names based on their personality or characteristics like Greedy Smurf, Jokey Smurf, Poet Smurf, and Handy Smurf. Some of the main characters are Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Clumsy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, and Hefty Smurf.
