At last night’s Eisner Awards, generally considered the biggest awards in the American comics scene, the big thick hardcover strip collection Celebrating Snoopy took home the trophy in the category of “Best Archival Collection/Project – Strips”. Congratulations to the fine folks who put that book together… and to Snoopy himself!
And on a not Peanuts-related front, but while I have a post going up anyway: at the About Comics 20th Anniversary panel on Thursday, I announced the immediate launch of a new project for those of you interested in 1950s comics. The Daily Nun is my new service that will put a different 1950s cartoon about nuns into Instagram or Twitter feed every day – and two days a week, it’s a caption contest, with prizes! Just follow @dailynun1 (note the 1 at the end) on either of those services.
