A look back at the AAUGHdobon Society
When I posted this two years ago, I was already delving into the Peanuts Ford Falcon ads, starting to gather material for Complete Peanuts 26, which I was not free to talk about and at that point was not even a definite thing. Getting as many of the Ford strips as we could was a major point of both work and expense on that book – lots of library time spent by members of the team (Derrick Bang and Tim Chow) going through old magazines, a fair amount spent in online auctions getting various examples (me). The set of strips seen in Complete Peanuts is not complete; we had one strip that we could find published only in a digest publication in color, and had no way of getting an acceptable black-plate version of it, the result was too low-resolution. Other strips may still be out there in odd corners, we cannot say for certain we found them all… but we tried, we tried.
