Now shipping are: volume 2 of the paperback edition of The Complete Peanuts, the boxed set of the first two volumes in that series, and the fourth trade paperback collection of the Kaboom! Peanuts comics. (I won’t be reviewing that last, as it’s got some of my work in it. But I might put a happy picture of me with the book once my comps arrive.)
- That serialized ebook by Schulz’s granddaughter on her struggles with her family, which I noted was not something you really needed to read a few years back, is now no longer available for the Kindle. This would cause me to have some deep thoughts about the unpermanent nature of ebooks, how had this been a physical book, you could find copies on the used market, but ebooks don’t work that way – if it wasn’t for the fact that both installments of this obviously-cut-short project are still available for the Nook.
- Spotted: The Telegram book 1: The Story of Charles Schultz is a Christian historical romance with no visible link to the world of Peanuts, except for that name, different spelling and all.
- AAUGH Blog reader Walter pointed out the October 13 Nancy comic strip, which has Nancy reading an issue of Tip-Top Comics with Charlie Brown on the cover. Of course, Nancy herself appeared in Tip-Top more than the Peanuts kids did… and both Tip-Top and the Nancy comic book show up in Peanuts.
