Dial P for Peanuts

Coming in November to comic shops is the graphic novel Dial P for Peanuts. This is an adaptation of a 2011 play written by a pair of college teachers, and it’s one of those “the Peanuts characters are grown up” type of things that we see more of on stage than elsewhere. In this case, it’s a murder mystery, sort of an And Then There Were None (to use the least offensive of the titles for Agatha Christie’s novel) featuring “Charles”, “Lucille”, and so forth. You can call your local comic shop and ask them to preorder a copy for you; it’s a smaller publisher, so not all shops will be ordering this, and it doesn’t seem to be in the Amazon system at this point.
