Tall Tales

How tall can a tale go? Is it limited by words or pictures? Or is it limitless… like imagination? Tinkle Tall Tales, Tinkle’s line of graphic novels [novels in the comics format], is best suited for finding answers to these questions.

Each Tall Tale takes a single Tinkle character and sends her/him on a rollicking, unputdownable 48-page adventure. That’s why it has the tagline—One Toon, One Story, One-derfully Long! It is different from a Tinkle Collection because it features one long story instead of a set of stories. Printed on special glossy, gorgeous pages, the Tall Tales showcase mad plotlines and fantastic art, making them a must-have for every Tinkle lover, comics collector or anyone who loves a one-derful story!
