See Previews / Order Now

Linus and his wait for the Great Pumpkin have been a pop culture touchstone for nearly 50 years thanks to the animated television special ("I got a rock"), and it all started in the classic Peanuts strips from 1959-1962 collected in this affordable, fun-sized gift book. Linus's belief and proselytizing that on Halloween, the Great Pumpkin rises from the pumpkin patch and travels the world bringing presents to good little girls and boys are laughed at by Charlie Brown, derided by his sister Lucy, met with skepticism by baby Sally, and even causes "denominational squabbling" over who's better, the Great Pumpkin or Santa Claus. Year after year, Linus faces his persecution and inevitable disappointment with either blind faith or Quixotic perseverance. Charles M. Schulz's homage to the power of idealism and belief makes these some of the most beloved comic strips of all time.

Great Pumpkin and Snoopy's Thanksgiving are due out in August and September respectively. Check out their previews, and, planning ahead for the holidays, why not pre-order them now?

Waiting for the Great Pumpkin by Charles M. Schulz - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under PeanutsComing AttractionsCharles M Schulz 23 Jun 2014 1:52 PM

There are few greater joys in life than being able to revisit the stories of one's childhood. Except, perhaps, getting to share them with others in a cute, fun-sized book!

Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts strips are a cornerstone of American 1950's-60's culture, and his beloved characters, including Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown, Linus, and Lucy remain household names to this day. In our latest pocket-sized Peanuts gift book, Waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we've collected those Halloween-themed strips revolving around Linus' unshakeable belief in, and proselytizing of, the Great Pumpkin — a mysterious figure who rises from pumpkin patches every Halloween to bring presents to good kids.

Read our 13-page (1.1 MB) excerpt and, while you're at it, avoid the fall rush and pre-order your copy now!

The signed and numbered beauties are available from Friedman's fine are website for only $150. A necessitiy for history and baseball buffs.  

As a lover of sports and art, you know that we at Fantagraphics love baseball. The summer nights, picnic pastimes, and hometown pride. Because of our big baseball crush, we have a lot of hardball hardcovers to share our love with readers.

ISBN: 978-1-60699-763-5

"Charles Schulz was an innovative genius of American comics and also the marathon man, drawing strip after strip, writing the storyboards for the TV specials, creating a fantasy world that connected kids as well as adults, and all based on powerful iconic characters who express deep feelings of loneliness and resentment and despair." - Garrison Keillor, from his introduction 

"We get to see Schulz figuring out what he wanted to do with this strip and how he wanted these characters to look and interact. Some of the kids, like Linus, Schroeder, and Lucy, start out as infants before Schulz decides to make them the same age as everybody else." –Rich Barrett, Mental Floss
