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.

Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under art 11 Aug 2008 10:07 PM

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:

Network with Love and Rockets
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Love and RocketsLos Bros Hernandez 11 Aug 2008 1:48 PM

In an effort to bring Love and Rockets fans together (and, of course, to turn up the burner on the simmering saucepan o'hype for Love and Rockets: New Stories #1), we've created two new social networking destinations:

• The Love and Rockets - The Hernandez Brothers Flickr Group - where Flickr members can share their L&R-related photos and scans and participate in message board discussions, and non-members can browse and enjoy all the images

• The Love and Rockets - The Hernandez Brothers Facebook Page - where Facebook users can declare themselves Fans, upload fan photos and videos, leave messages, receive special updates, etc.

This, of course, is in addition to our Fantagraphics Flickr Group and Fantagraphics Facebook Page. Swing on by, browse, participate, and enjoy!
