Comic-Con Peanuts exclusive #1: Presidential pins

Hey, I can work four days worth of posts out of the San Diego Comic-Con exclusives at the Peanuts booth, because they’ve got four exclusives… and number 1 is the freebie!

Each day at the booth, they’ll be giving out a different Peanuts pin, each presenting a different Peanuts character as a presidential candidate! If you want a bossy woman to be president, why vote for Hillary when you can vote for Lucy? Or if you want a boastful loudmouth for president, why vote for Trump when you can vote for, umm, Lucy. Really, Lucy is the obvious choice in all this. She’ll be the first to tell you so.

Quantities are limited each day, of course.


By the way, in case anyone’s wondering, I expect to be at the convention, but only on the Friday of the show. I’m not scheduled to be on any panels, so if anyone wants to find me, you oughta let me know in advance.

(Oh, and by the way, I actually have no problem with a woman being “bossy” when the job is being the boss.)

Schulz/Peanuts news
Where to direct your charity

With the news about the Schulz home burning in the fire, people are wondering how to help. I’ve already heard people asking if Jean Schulz has put up a Go Fund Me page. To be frank, that seems like an unlikely thing to have happen. The Schulz family is in …
