Love from Powell's

Vday powell's
It's that time of year again! When sad boys and girls wait outside their mailbox for a letter, or constantly refresh their email for that higher mail number. Maybe it's someone waiting for a fresh-cut bouquet of flowers or (if you're like me and flowers are like giving someone a small pet to take care of) a box of chocolates.
Vigil
Maybe it's knowing others just suffer in the same universal waiting game, even though the waiting is what makes the receiving that much more delightful. Fear not. for Powell's City of Books in Portland, OR has the front of the store display packed to the gills with Valentine's Day appropriate candy and of course, A Valentine for Charlie Brown by Charles M. Schulz.
Charlie brown 
So get a copy for loved one as a gentle reminder of the anxiety such holidays give us and that they are loved. Or for yourself and revel, you swine, in someone else's quiet pain! Love, Fantagraphics.
A Valentine for Charlie Brown

Rerun Season: An Appreciation
Written by Kristy Valenti | Filed under PeanutsCharles M Schulz 11 Dec 2014 12:50 PM

Intern RJ Casey recently helped index The Complete Peanuts: 1995-1996 (Vol. 23), which inspired him to write this Flog post.

There’s someone who is too heavy for a blimp, too underground for greeting cards, too cool to be afloat on Thanksgiving. There’s someone named Rerun Van Pelt, and he’s the only Peanuts character that matters.

Charles Schulz created Rerun as a throwaway character in the ’70s, good for a couple baby jokes here and there; the youngest Van Pelt was mostly relegated to the background for the better part of two decades. But the background was perfect for Rerun. That’s where he sat and observed all the blunders and gaffes everyone around him made in the daily, cyclical rotation. All the blankets, the bullying, the balls missed, the bad hygiene. These weren’t mistakes Rerun could afford to make, because he was a different sort of character. In the historic run of strips, Rerun was the only character that evolved into a Midwestern agent of change.

Rerun comes from a family of lunatics. At best, his sister Lucy is kind, but only when she’s attempting to manipulate anybody on two feet (this includes dogs). At worst, Lucy’s manic, often violent outbursts usually land Rerun somersaulting in the snow, or with a broken board game cracked over his head. His evangelical conspiracy theorist brother is no better. When Linus tries to teach his kid brother about the Great Pumpkin and convince him to go door to door to spread the good word, Rerun straight-up bails, because he’s not a blind follower to the gourd. Rerun is no hack physiatrist or wet security blanket adherent. He’s his own man—a Peanuts punk to his overalled core.

Rerun had to learn how to ride solo when Charlie Brown, Schroeder, Shermy and the squad didn’t even allow him on the baseball diamond. Not one to be relegated to the bench—especially after he started co-headlining the comic in the ’90s—Rerun takes to basketball, a more physically taxing and mentally demanding sport. Though the ball is about the same size as his body, Rerun’s handle is sick, and he even occasionally sinks a few buckets. Rerun had to adapt to tough times, like his parents not allowing him to own a dog. He didn’t whine or give up. No, he begged, borrowed, and stole until he scammed Snoopy into sending for his brother Spike. When Spike showed up and didn’t fit Rerun’s strict specifications, he sent him right back to the desert.

Although he may not be a Peanuts OG, Rerun Van Pelt is the most intriguing character in the long-running comic strip by far. If you tell me anything different, you might as well be squawking like Miss Othmar, because I’m not hearing it. Rerun won’t mind though. He’s just going to keep evolving, keep discerning, and keep making those basement comics.

Riffing on Peanuts
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under PeanutsmiscellanyCharles M Schulz 4 Dec 2014 12:54 PM
Peanuts
The next Complete Peanuts volume has an introduction unlike any one you have ever seen before. We've had comedians before from Whoopi Goldberg to Patton Oswalt talk about their connection to Schulz, Snoopy and the Gang but never before have we had someone riff on top of a Peanuts comic strip!
 
The comedians behind Rifftrax, Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy are also known for their work in Mystery Science Theater 3000. Mike was a writer and then host of the show, while Corbett and Murphy wrote and provided the amazing voices for the 'bots, Crow and Tom Servo respectively. They riff on four Peanuts strips in the upcoming The Complete Peanuts Vol. 23 (1995-1996)
 
But don't worry, there's also a fantastic words-only introduction written by two of their newer Rifftrax writers, Sean Thomason and Conor Lastowka. Like the kind that makes you laugh 'til you cry. And for anyone attending the Rifftrax LIVE show tonight in Nashville and streaming into theaters across the United States, Fantagraphics a little preview of the riffed comics just for the audience as part of downloadable digital goodies! There's still time to get a time to get a ticket for tonight, check your local theaters here to see who is showing Rifftrax: Santa Claus . And you've got plenty of time to preorder The Complete Peanuts Vol. 23 (1995-1996)

Charles M. Schulz continues reign on NY Times Best Seller list
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under PeanutsCharles M Schulz 2 Dec 2014 11:05 AM
Snoopy's Thanksgiving
The indomitable Charles M. Schulz, aka Sparky, hits home the week after Thanksgiving by having our new Thanksgiving-themed books on the NY Times Best Sellers list. In this humourous collection, Woodstock goes through a variety of masks and outfits to disguise the fact that he is a bird during this poultry-fied food holiday. As for Snoopy, he decides it's time to visit some kin and enjoy a nice holiday with his brother, Spike, or so he thought... Snoopy's Thanksgiving is one of our many Peanuts gift books that fit small hands, big hearts and don't hurt your wallet.
Charlie Brown's Christmas Stocking Batter Up Charlie Brown 
Check out Charlie Brown's Christmas Stocking (literally fits in a Christmas stocking!) or if you yearn for warm weather and the smell of sweet grass, Batter Up, Charlie Brown! might be for you. There's also the upcoming A Valentine for Charlie Brown to look out for and of course, everyone's favorite holiday: Waiting for the Great Pumpkin which is good anytime time of year.

OCD Extra: November Booklist Reviews
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under PeanutsOCDEd PiskorCharles Burns 14 Nov 2014 1:46 PM
This month's issue of Booklist will include reviews of recent releases by a Fantagraphics creator, excerpted below: 
Hip Hop Family Tree  
"The second collection of Piskor's hip-hop history in comics may be a better place to start reading it than the first....Piskor's Jack Kirby-ish drawing chops-monumental figures in thrusting, dynamic action; flat colors that crush perspective-constitute precisely the sturdy vehicle to carry it as far as Piskor will take it." –Ray Olson
"Peanuts' enduring appeal is timeless and universal, and this handsomely designed volume only enhances its allure... This era…seesthe introduction of such annual events as the futile vigil for the Great Pumpkin and the Christmas pageant, as well as the birth of Charlie Brown's sister, Sally."
–Gordon Flagg 


Fantagraphics dominates NY Times Best Seller List
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Walt KellyPeanutsDon RosaDisneyCharles M Schulz 10 Nov 2014 11:50 AM
Best Seller
This week, Fantagraphics topped the NY Times Best Seller list in hardback graphic novels. Four of our new releases landed on the list: In the number one position was Pogo - The Complete Syndicated Strips Vol. 3 "Evidence to the Contrary" by Walt KellyThis volume features daily and Sunday strips (in full color) from 1953-1954. Kelly introduces one of his boldest political caricatures, the insidious Simple J. Malarkey. Seminole Sam scams, Churchy La Femme cross-dresses, P.T. Bridgeport returns and more.
 Pogo Vol. 3 Peanuts
N0. 2 on the Best Seller list was The Complete Peanuts 1991-1994 Gift Box Set by Charles M. Schulz. There's a reason this two-some is so popular; the books are full of surprises for the most ardent Peanuts fan and Schulz's humor is unrestrained and glorious. There is a charmingly odd story of when the school bus never comes, full-on Waiting for Godot. In addition, Charlie Brown finally FINALLY hits a home run but the entire story is worth the boxset. 
Rosa Box Set 
At spot 3 is Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Libary Volumes 1 + 2 Gift Box Set including "Return to Plain Awful" and "Son of the Sun". Famed for his prizewinning "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," Rosa wrote and drew a whopping two decades' worth of ripping Scrooge and Donald yarns!  Duckburg's richest tycoon is on the hunt for legendary square eggs - and he's bringing Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie along, in the sequel to "Lost in the Andes"! 
 Peanuts
And at spot 6 is the single volume of The Complete Peanuts Vol. 22 1993-1994 by Charles M. Schulz. Complete with the homerun, the bus that wouldn't come PLUS Snoopy makes a run for the Supreme Court and battles pneumonia.
 
The week these four books came out, we had about 54 pounds of graphic novels, comic strips and reprints come out so we still a bit shocked to have so many titles on the list (but not so shocked when you consider the awesome comics). Gary and Eric did some deadlifts just to see if they could guess the weight of the releases from Wednesday, October 22nd. 
Deadlift 
We'll keep printing if you keep a-reading!
