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.
