A quick note to those of you who are on The YouTube: we've just uploaded over a dozen of our recent video previews that have heretofore been hosted only on Flickr. We like the video quality on Flickr better, but we know there's lots of you on YouTube, too, so please, watch and enjoy.

By the way, we'd like to encourage those of you with your own blogs and websites to use our Flickr preview images and embed our videos, if you so desire. It's all kosher, so don't be shy.

Linus for President!
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Peanuts 12 Aug 2008 9:46 AM

Peanuts and Rock the Vote have teamed up this election season to show everyone how easy it is to vote... And the big question of the day is which Peanuts character would you want for President? Log on HERE to learn about the candidates: Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Sally.... Then it's up to you to decide and VOTE... 

Right now Charlie Brown is in the lead. Not a terrible choice, but come on, is there any doubt that Linus would make the Greatest President Ever? At least vote for Sally -- you know she'd pick a smart VP.

Meanwhile, if you're near Santa Rosa, CA, this year, the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center has mounted an exhibition of election-themed strips spanning  the twelve presidential elections that took place during Schulz's 50 year run on Peanuts.

The ongoing Yoda theme sketchbook rolled over into a second volume at Comic-Con. I continue to be flabbergasted by the amazing generosity and talent of all the contributing artists. Below, from the Fantagraphics family: Mary Woodring, Jordan Crane (2nd contribution), Jon Vermilyea, Mario Hernandez, Tim Hensley, John Pham, Jim Woodring and Zak Sally. Click the thumbnails for better views with commentary and more info on Flickr:
