Okay, you can get the minicomic

Peanuts minicomicI’ve now learned that there’s a sampler pack of Halloween minicomics, including the Peanuts Halloween comic, which you can lay your hands on. Call your local comic shop (you can find their address here) and ask if they are getting the Halloween 2008 Mini-Comics Variety Pack Sampler. They probably won’t be… but then ask if they can special order it for you. If they will, you can help them out by giving them Diamond Distributors order code number: JUL088048J.

I should have a copy in my hands sometime this week, and will do a write-up (although the basic information is that it has over 20 strips, including 5 color Sundays, all 1960s.)
