Ach, how did I miss this? Hitting better comic book stores today is A Peanuts Halloween, a mini comic book. Sold in bundles of 12 (for $4.99), this is a little comic book reprinting strips, meant to be handed out to trick-or-treaters. Call your local comic shop and ask if they have them in stock. Updated: No, don’t ask. Turns out they’re not for shops to sell to you for giving out for Halloween; they’re for stores to give out on Halloween. So plan your trick-or-treating carefully!
(And when you do, you can ask them if they have The Licensable BearTM Big Book of Officially Licensed Fun, which also hit stores today. It’s a collection of my own comic book series, with dozens of short stories about a cute li’l fella who just wants to be licensed for products. It reprints all four issues of his series plus some short stories that appeared elsewhere… and as it happens, includes the first comic book appearance of Barack Obama, from last year’s issue.)
