"The Complete Peanuts has framed Charles Schulz’s enduring masterpiece about as well any lifelong fan could’ve hoped." – "The Best Comics of the '00s: The Archives," The A.V. Club

"Charles Schulz was an American treasure — an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life." – Bill Clinton

"The Complete Peanuts confronts us afresh with what a brilliant, truly modern and totally weird idea it was to create a comic strip about a chronically depressed child..." – TIME

"Fantagraphics' heroic project (designed with subtle, quiet beauty by the caroonist called Seth) enables us to glimpse the moment when 'good ol' Charlie Brown' could say with frowning vehemence, 'The rest of this day can’t possibly hold any good for me!'... [Grade:] A” – Entertainment Weekly

In this volume, Peanuts celebrates its 40th birthday! Snoopy and Spike decline to compete in an ugly dog competition, entering their brother Olaf instead. Charlie Brown and Marcie spend quality time together at sleepaway camp, while Peppermint Patty simmers in summer school. Linus ramps up his Great Pumpkin proselytizing with the "Great Pumpkin Movement" — complete with literature to pass out door to door. Marcie begins to crack under the pressure of being a good student. Charlie Brown even gets the girl — but she thinks his name is Brownie Charles!

Holy yes-more-please, SPX rocked us. Jacq Cohen, Gary Groth and I traversed across the country for one of the single best comic books shows that exists. We knew it was going to be quite the fun time when we boarded the plane and saw Joseph Remnant. A small favor to stranger later and he was TRAPPED between us for 4+ hours.
Jen, Joseph and Jacq
SPX is that magical place where we stay in the same hotel as the convention so you run into people all the time. We found a Ben Catmull by the elevators right away! Maybe he was haunting the place (NOT COOL, BEN)

SPX had Ed Piskor draw the badges for the show this year and they were pretty bitching! Melanie Gillman models:

Early morning rise and shine, all the books were out in their deliciously intimidating stacks including all sexy color Peanuts Every Sunday.

Speaking of Peanuts, kids are attracted to it like a magnet. Yes!

Sketching Guantanamo also debuted at SPX and Janet Hamlin, the military tribunal artist for the last seven years showed up with some new sketches. This book is very important, not just to Janet or us but to the United States as a form of public record.

Speaking of debuts, The Secret History of Marvel Comics edited by Blake Bell and Dr. Michael J. Vassallo was very popular amongst the small press and indie fans. Chip Mosher of comiXology and Max Robinson have a mug off plus show off fun 'demonstration hands'!

Meanwhile, one of the best dressed men and micropublishers in comics, Ryan Sands of Youth in Decline SHOWS OFF not one but two amazing tops before grabbing The Dan Clowes Reader (edited by Ken Parille).

I'm so pissed I forgot to show off my '90s HIP HOP socks to Ed while he was signing Hip Hop Family Tree. See those smiley faces and peace signs? The kind of socks you keep for the rest of your life! Eden Miller, Ignatz organizer, also showed off her own foot related fashion---an Ignatz tattoo pulled right from the pages of Herriman's comic!

We had SUCH a great time at SPX, thank you so much to Warren Bernard, Michael David Thomas, Dan Stafford, Eden Miller, Sam Marx and the many, many, many other staffers and volunteers who made the show rock. Our bags are already packed for next year.

The Complete Peanuts 1989-1990 (Vol. 20) by Charles M. Schulz - Video/Photo Slideshow Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under videopreviewsPeanutsnew releasesCharles M Schulz 20 Sep 2013 3:11 PM

The Complete Peanuts 1989-1990 (Vol. 20)
by Charles M. Schulz

344-page black & white 8.5" x 7" hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-680-5

Ships in: September 2013 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now  

This 20th volume is particularly dense with romantic intrigue, as Marcie and Charlie Brown end up at camp together, sending Peppermint Patty into mad jealousy (especially since Marcie can't resist teasing her)... and an old friend of Charlie Brown's attempts to look him up again but confuses him with Snoopy and goes on a date with him instead.

But the most crucial event in romance is Charlie Brown's romance with Peggy Jean — even though he's so flustered in his first conversation with her that he ends up stuck with the name "Brownie Charles" for the duration of her relationship ("I kind of like it...").

This volume also introduces yet another Snoopy sibling, Olaf, who is humiliatingly invited to enter an ugly-dog contest (and, even more humiliatingly, wins). Plus lots of Zen-like Spike-and-cactus strips, Sally Brown non sequiturs, D-minuses for Peppermint Patty, and wise thoughts from Franklin's grandpa... Snoopy treks through the wilderness as the Beagle Scoutmaster and through the desert as the World Famous Sergeant of the Foreign Legion, Woodstock takes a whack at being the King of the Jungle, Lucy enjoys Michael Jackson on her boom box, Marcie's perfectionism leads to a crack-up, Pigpen runs for class president, Snoopy gets called to jury duty... and for a change, Lucy pulls the football out from under Charlie Brown.

Peanuts Every Sunday: 1952-1955

Peanuts Every Sunday pages

Oh my gosh, gang, the advance copies of Peanuts Every Sunday: 1952-1955 by Charles M. Schulz are here and they are GAWRJUS. Even if you think "meh, I already have these strips in black & white in The Complete Peanuts, I don't need 'em in color," one look at this lovely, lovely book will convince you otherwise. Some lucky, lucky folks were able to pick up early copies at SPX this past weekend and we'll have a very limited amount at APE next month — everyone else will have to wait until late October or early November. Get on the early end of that window by pre-ordering now!

Peanuts Every Sunday: 1952-1955 (Vol. 1) by Charles M. Schulz - Excerpt
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsPeanutsComing AttractionsCharles M Schulz 16 Sep 2013 1:12 PM

It's Peanuts! Every Sunday strip, in full color, together for the first time ever! What else do you need to know? OK, here are some other relevant facts:

• Using the same archival sources as The Complete Peanuts series, the line art has been crisply restored to our usual standards.

• The coloring is all-new, done by the lovely and talented Joanne Bagge (of the Seattle Bagges) and based on original tear sheets. As you can see in the excerpt, it's vibrant but slightly muted to give the same feeling as when the strips were originally printed on newsprint.

• Designed by our own Jacob Covey -- bold, yet understated. 

• It's big -- fully twice the size of each volume of The Complete Peanuts

• Yes, there will be slipcased sets. 10 volumes in total (released once a year), 5 box sets (every 2 years).

Our downloadable excerpt gives you the first 3 months of strips to read for free! The book is due in November for your holiday gift-shopping needs. Pre-order now for soonest delivery!
