Peanuts Every Sunday box set of awesome

Conflict of interest note: I have had a business relationship with the publisher Fantagraphics on multiple Peanuts-oriented projects in the past and may well continue to do so. No review copies of these volumes were provided. It seems almost pointless to review the boxed set that I just got of …

Dance, Snoopy, Dance!

The Peanuts books released by Phoenix International Publications (a.k.a. PI Kids) can be hard to detect. They don’t go through the normal book distribution chain. They don’t show up on Amazon or on most other online retailers. Usually, I have to just stumble across them, often at Costco. The book Dance, …

Peanuts vol. 8

For various reasons, I’m not actually reviewing the collection of the Kaboom! Peanuts comics. However, I now have Peanuts volume 8, and I do have to say that one thing I like about these collections is that they have a cover gallery in the back, and they include not only the …

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, …

A Charlie Brown Christmas in its original black and white

I did a little unboxing of the A Charlie Brown Christmas Coloring Kit, which is the third new print edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas that I’ve covered this year. (Email blog subscribers can see the video here.) What this video shows, if you pay attention, is: I really need to clean my …

It’s a Tree-Tumbling Christmas, Charlie Brown

Hallmark has released another book featuring their “itty-bittys” reworking of the Peanuts characters, this one with two stuffed Peanuts figures attached to it. While Charlie Brown and Snoopy are already represented in the itty-bittys stuffed line, of course, I believe that to get them in these particular costumes, you have …

Lets hold a panel to decide if two panels is enough

Normally, I don’t cover new coloring books on the blog – there’s just too many of them, and I don’t particularly collect them (although I do accumulate some), but AAUGH Blog reader John sent me this coloring book and while waiting for my first trick-or-treater of the evening, I just noticed …

A Charlie Brown Christmas keeps popping up!

The second (and not the last) of my new book editions of A Charlie Brown Christmas for this year is A Charlie Brown Christmas: A Hallmark Lighted Pop-up Book, available at better Hallmark stores now. Or soon. Mine didn’t have it on the shelf (yet?), but I ordered it online. This one …

The big Big Book of Peanuts strikes again!

Today’s find actually comes as little surprise – for the fourth year in a row, Andrews McMeel Publishing has unleashed a new volume in the The Big Book of Peanuts series. This year’s entry has all of the dailies from 1950s. These books are not distributed through the standard book channels, which …

Recycled cookies!

Hey, I got the new Hallmark book Peanuts Favorite Christmas Cookies, only to find out that I already had it… it’s a reprint of the book Peanuts Christmas Cookie Set, which was supposed to come out in 2013 but finally came out in 2014, as a paperback with three cookie cutters (a …
