Little Lulu, the comic originally created by Marjorie Henderson Buell for the Saturday Evening Post in the 1930's, has gone on to inspire generations of animators and cartoonists including the industry group Friends of Lulu.  Now, the Lulu strips penned by journeyman writer John Stanley are getting the re-printing they deserve from publisher Drawn & Quarterly.  Co-editor Frank Young joins us in the studio to talk about the unique aesthetic, history, and influence of Little Lulu.
