Peanuts 1 in stores today

Now shipping

The first issue of the new Peanuts comic book hits comic shops in North America today, so use the Comic Shop Locator to find a store near you, and call ahead to see if they’re carrying this book (not every store will).

Of course, you could just preorder the book collection, which will save you a few bucks over buying four issues at $3.99 each.
