Four Things I Learned From Little Lulu Color Special

If I would have taken the time to flip through a copy of the Little Lulu Color Special in a shop, I probably wouldn't have purchased it, as the stories within are the same ones available in Dark Horse's black-and-white reprints, only presented larger and in full-color.
