Top 5s and 10s
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under PeanutsPaul Hornschemeierawards 10 Dec 2007 2:31 PM


More year-end accolades: New York Magazine has named Paul Hornschemeier's The Three Paradoxes one of its five Best Comics of 2007. Paul is the only American creator on the list (Japan, Israel and Australia are also represented), so hey, I guess that unofficially makes The Three Paradoxes the best American comic of the year! Congratulations, Paul!



Meanwhile, The Complete Peanuts 1963-64 makes it onto Time's Top 10 Graphic Novels of 2007 list. I don't know if the writer is the first to compare Snoopy's doghouse to the TARDIS, but if so, nicely done. We're honored to continue collecting Schulz's work.





All bow to Snoopy-san.

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).

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.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery Proudly Presents "UNSEEN PEANUTS," an Exhibition of Rarely Seen Works by Charles M. Schulz Opening November 23.



"It's no stretch at all to say that Charles Schulz was the most popular and successful American artist who ever lived." — Charles McGrath, New York Times

Perhaps no American artist is more closely associated with the holidays than "Peanuts" creator Charles M. Schulz. Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery, in association with the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, celebrates the holiday season with "Unseen Peanuts," a display of little known works by this incomparable master of the comic strip medium. The exhibition opens on Friday, November 23 and continues through December 31, 2007.

Eric Reynolds recorded a couple of brief video clips of Gary Groth's interview of Schulz and Peanuts author David Michaelis at the Elliott Bay Book Company here in Seattle on Wednesday evening and passed them to me to put on YouTube:


We also have several still photos from a few different sources — click for a gallery on Flickr.

We're #3

We are pleased to point out that Amazon.com has ranked The Complete Peanuts 1963-1966 Box Set at #3 on their list of Best Books of 2007 - Top 10 Editors Picks: Graphic Novels.

I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't suggest that you buy it directly from us. Amazon has us beat on price but they can't match the love.
