We now have the first preorderable Peanuts book for 2016: My First Peanuts: 1-2-3: A Counting Adventure, a board book. Also just added to our list of upcoming Peanuts books is this September’s sixth volume in the collection of the KaBOOM Peanuts series., which should have the final two of my stories for the series in it: “Steep Grade Ahead” (illustrated by Robert Pope) and “In the Shadows” (with the art of Stephanie Gladden.)
Forgive my going several days without posting, but I took advantage of the holiday weekend to visit out-of-state family members. In the interest of catching up, here’s a quick post – upcoming covers which are fairly self-explanatory, you can click through for larger images and to order.
I’ve seen publishers update their planned cover as the release date grows closer, but I don’t think I’ve seen one go through four planned iterations before now… and in this case, the book is mine!

Because this November was looking just far too bereft of Peanuts books coming out, Fantagraphics has added one to the list! Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron is a hardcover collection of strips focusing on ye olde World War I Flying Ace. This is part of their “Peanuts Seasonal” line which has previously been thin square hardcover books (starting with Charlie Brown’s Christmas Stocking), but at 200 pages this one will be about as thick as three of the previous volumes (and at a price point of twenty-five bucks, cost about as much as two-and-a-half of them.)
