Us Husbands is a domestic comedy and its Sundays-only format allows for some of Herrimans richest and most detailed drawing - and it is by far the most obscure of Herrimans major works, with aficionados having seen only a glimpse of it. Stumble Inn, for which Herriman drew both richly detailed, six-panel dailies and glorious full-page Sundays, is sometimes described as a precursor to Fawlty Towers.

It takes place entirely within a small hotel and pits the long-suffering proprietor, Uriah Stumble, and his staff against a rotating cast of difficult guests. Hijinx ensue, both verbal and visual. Herrimans Hoomins will be augmented with a historical appreciation by the invaluable Jeet Heer (co-editor of Frank Kings Walt & Skeezix reprint series and a critic for The National Post), and more Herriman rarities.
