Happy 65th Anniversary, Peanuts Gang!

KaBOOM!, the all-ages imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, has had the joy of publishing Peanuts anthology-style comics for over the past two years now. In celebration of Peanuts’ 65th anniversary in 2015, the publisher is pleased to announce the February debut of their first non-anthology issue in Peanuts #25 with an oversized, original story inspired by the masterworks of Charles M. Schulz.   

Paige Braddock (Eisner Award-nominated Jane’s World, Creative Director at Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates) and Vicki Scott (The Beagle Has Landed; It’s Tokyo, Charlie Brown!)—two creators who have long worked on KaBOOM!’s Peanuts issues and graphic novels—are taking Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts back to summer camp so readers can escape the winter weather in a 32-page, long-form story.
Peanuts has been loved across multiple generations, and we’ve had the honor of sharing that love for more than two years now,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We wanted to celebrate that milestone, and especially the 65th anniversary, with something we’ve never done with Peanuts before, and we’re very excited to show you the results!”

Peanuts #25 arrives in comic shops from KaBOOM! on February 18th with a main cover by Vicki Scott for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code DEC141218. Also available in limited quantities is a retailer incentive cover by Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz.

Talks to JM DeMatteis

Sorry about that gaffe last night. That's a new Page, not Post, and it got confused between the two. No one here did anything wrong. Also, the FeedBurner was acting-up so it was that, too. It was something else.

Anyway, we have a new Page up: our Interview with the illustrious J. M. DeMatteis. We know the formatting was a bit stale from the original and it worked better this way. It looks quite nice, now.

Don't forget we're taking-on Kung-Fu Fever tonight around 10:00pm Central - LIVE!

An Apothecary

Whoa! Check this out: An actual apothecary. It sells perfumes but while I admit to not exploring the entire site, it appears to offer an extremely wide selection of health and beauty supplies. The parfumes include something that was formerly know as l'aromarine, so if you know what that means you just might be in luck (if you have been looking for it). I don't really do perfumes but I do like to smell nice.
