The Schulz bowling book is available

A while back I let you know that I was putting together a small book of Schulz cartoons about bowling… and now it’s available! It’s a thin little thing, 52 pages, a few dozen cartoons, and it’s nothing that the Schulz completist needs (all of the cartoons are already in …

What Nat’s been working on

That’s a piece of the pencil art for a three page story entitled “Bank Notes” which will be showing up in issue 7 of the Peanuts comic book, due out in April. The art is by Stephanie Gladden, who I’ve wanted to work with for a long long time now. …

The other Other Snoopy

A while back, I posted about a 1955 book featuring a dog named Snoopy, one who is not our Snoopy, and noted that it was not the first such example. Well, now I have my paws on The Story of Snoopy The Nosey Little Puppy by the single-named Harriet. That’s …
