personal Peanuts

Up for auction is Schulz’s correspondence with a woman he was enamored of, including a variety of gag sketches done for her, both Peanuts and non. This goes with my instinct to find every little piece of  Schulzwork; in the wake of the release of Christmas Stocking, I’ve been joking …


A discount CB Christmas

Remaindered copies of a hardcover edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas are available for $7.98, 60% off the original list. (I had messed up this link earlier to point to unremaindered, more expensive copies. This has now been fixed.)

The good news from Amazon is that the new boxed sets of The Complete Peanuts 1983-1986 can now be ordered; whatever problem was keeping them from releasing sets has obviously been cleared. The bad news is that it looks like one of Amazon’s standard discounts has gone away. Until recently, …
