All bow to Snoopy-san.
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Peanuts 6 Dec 2007 10:08 PM


You fellow PEANUTS lovers out there have to check out Chris Butcher's photos of the totally awesome-looking Peanuts store in Tokyo (not to mention the equally cool Moomin and Tintin stuff).

Support Cartoon Studies and get some nice prints.

Weekend Goings-on and some stuff to buy.
Written by Jacob Covey | Filed under Steven WeissmanKovey Korner 6 Dec 2007 6:19 PM

It's a busy weekend in Seattle for a change. Saturday is not only the anniversary of our storefront operation but a big day for two Nonprofit Fanta Friends. 826 Seattle is also celebrating a birthday and Eric Reynolds highly endorses the Salon of Shame, which will be happening from 3-4 pm. And The Vera Project presents their annual craft bazaar and the Bring It, Screen It event.

Building your financial future...
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under life imitates comicsChris Ware 6 Dec 2007 4:40 PM

... one copyright infringement at a time. A friend just sent me this cellphone pic, and writes, "We had a meeting today going over 401K stuff, and the slideshow from Principal Financial Group included the attached slide. I asked the guy if he knew who put this together but he didn't know." Talk about random. What does this picture signify? Is the guy in the photo supposed to be Chris Ware? (He isn't.) If so, are we to think that Chris Ware likes to bring giant xeroxes of his work to his financial advisor's office and participate in photo shoots? It this like that Diff'rent Strokes episode where Gordon Jump takes pictures in his back office of Arnold and Dudley their tidy whities and safari hats? Do cartoonists even have 401Ks? I kind of didn't think so.
Crumb & Schulz: expensive
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Robert CrumbPeanutsclassicsCharles M Schulz 6 Dec 2007 12:52 PM


Via Spurge come some record-breaking auction results: Charles Schulz's original art for the Sunday, April 10, 1955 Peanuts strip recently sold for $113,525, and Robert Crumb's original cover of Mr. Natural #1 sold in the same auction for $101,575, the first time either artist has cleared 6 figures.

For about 0.025% of its sale price, that same Schulz strip can be had, along with 730 others, in The Complete Peanuts 1955-1956. Just saying.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Ellen Forney 6 Dec 2007 12:24 PM

This Saturday night in Brooklyn: FLETCHER HANKS!

What is "Ghost World?"
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under televisionDaniel Clowes 6 Dec 2007 8:27 AM


That was the unexpected $2000 'question' in yesterday's Double Jeopardy category of "Graphic Novels on Film." This a day after Spiegelman was name-checked in a category about New York City. What is going on here? The 'answer' was something like "In this film, Enid and Rebecca are best friends entering adulthood" or something like that (I honestly don't remember, it was too surreal, I was discombobulated). Sadly, none of the contestants responded. Other questions in the category were about 300, The Road to Perdition, The Crow, and From Hell.

Okay, not exactly. But his cover of yesterday's New York Observer was!
