Product Details


Hilda is now on Netflix! Season 2 coming in 2020!

“In HILDA Luke Pearson has created a truly odd and amazingly beautiful world—Stunningly personal and original. I am in awe of his imagination. He is a real inspiration.”
—Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy

“Plain smart and moving. John Stanley’s Little Lulu meets Miyazaki.”
—Guillermo Del Toro

Pearson’s utter lack of pretension keeps Hilda feeling fresh, while his reading of folktales and Tove Jansson’s Moomin series embeds Hilda in the long history of children’s stories. […] Hilda’s dilemmas, while fantastic, also feel real […] Pearson has found a lovely new way to dramatize childhood demons, while also making you long for your own cruise down the fjords.
The New Yorker

“Hilda and the Troll tells the story of an artistic Scandinavian girl as she explores the unknown wilderness around her house, encountering a blue fox with antlers, the mysterious ‘wood man,’ and (you guessed it!) a troll. The art is as whimsical as the protagonist, and the bright colors enhance this comic book’s magical-realistic effect.”
The Horn Book

“A master of mood-enhancing colors, Pearson nudges the story from vivid to haunting at a pen-stroke, ending with a book that is vibrant delight with just an edge of spine-tingling danger. A really great story for ages six-and-up, and anyone else who thinks comics are best read with flashlights under the covers.”
—Comics Alliance

“Take a look at the little blue-haired girl on the cover of this book. That is the face of a determined adventurer, a young girl with an inquisitive nature and the heart of an explorer”
𔃍 Minutes For Books.

“Pearson is a rising star.”

—New Yorker
