Nun cartoons

This is a non-Peanuts post, but I’ve been working on a project which has some overlap in interest, so I thought I’d bring it up. A little while ago, I posted a 1950s cartoon with a nun teaching some native Americans, one of whom was dressed akin to Charlie Brown, …

Golf Gags – Schulz and otherwise

Warning: this post is a bit promotional. With my publisher hat on, I just put out a new book, Great Golf Gags by Classic Cartoonists, which features golf cartoons by six respected 20th century cartoonists. Does this include Schulz? You betcha! A nice big helping of Schulz. Having said that, if …

The book Peanuts and Philosophy: You’re A Wise Man, Charlie Brown, is now shipping… which I know because I’ve got a copy. However, this is not a review, because it’s going to take me a while to get through the eighteen short essays discussing the philosophical maters to be found within …

This is the final volume of the series, and as I’ve told you before, this is the one that I helped put together, filling it with Schulz Peanuts material that wasn’t part of the daily newspaper strip.

Gang leadership

Usually, when I order a Peanuts book, I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to find inside. I do, after all, have hundreds of Peanuts books, and am able to discern patterns. This will be a storybook, that will be a themed strip reprint, and so on. And so, …

Peanuts Favorite Christmas Cookies

Not satisfied with destroying my wallet, Hallmark now also targets my waistline with Peanuts Favorite Christmas Cookies, a new cookbook with about 50 cookie recipes, plus some strips. AAUGH! I don’t have a copy yet, so I’ll avoid commenting on the slightly odd title until I’ve gotten it.
