Free Comic Book Day – tomorrow

I’m interrupting your usual Peanuts-y news for a reminder that the first Saturday in May – and as I type this, that’s tomorrow – is Free Comic Book Day. Odds are pretty good that if you walk into a comic book store tomorrow, you’ll be able to walk away with absolutely …

I’m to blame for Schulz forgeries!

EBay is, unsurprisingly, awash in fraud. It gets pulled in many ways, including knock-off items and forgeries. Cartoonist Terry Beatty (currently of the “Rex Morgan” newspaper strip) has been doing a good job of highlighting tracings and fakes being passed off as original drawings by famous cartoonists – and given …

Free Comic Book Day is coming up this Saturday, and once again comic shops across the English-speaking world will be giving away free comic books. Some comic shops will only let you have one, some will give you a good fistfull… but hey, any free comics are great. There’s no …

Not to discount religion, but…

Discounts are my religion! I was just about to post about the upcoming release of a paperback edition of A Charlie Brown Religion, Stephen Lind’s deep dive into Schulz’s religiosity, when I discovered that Amazon has a few copies of the hardcover edition at 67% off the list price, or about …

Hallmark haul

As promised, I went to the local Hallmark shop, and found… no knowledge of the Peanuts sale. No signage. Talked to someone who appeared to be the manager, and she was unaware of such a sale. So I mentioned that it was on Hallmark’s website, and she went into her …
