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 …

Communicative Christmas covers

Cover images have appeared for two upcoming Christmas-themed Peanuts books, and they both let us know something further about the books. What the cover for The Peanuts Guide to Christmas tells us is that this indeed a US reprint of a British book of the same name. And what the …

The NSFW Things People Show You

I’ve got an interesting, topically-NSFW (that’s “Not Safe For Work”) image that’s relevant to this blog. I’m just posting a link to it here, rather than the image itself, so that it doesn’t pop up in people’s newsfeeds or email unexpectedly. It’s an ad that I suspect is using Peanuts …

Character Encyclopedia cover

We’ve got the cover for the Complete Peanuts Character Encyclopedia, coming in October. The sample art, which you’ll see on the Amazon page, makes it clear this is an illustration-heavy, full color volume. Of course, you expect something nice for a $40 volume (currently discounted on Amazon, and of course …

Many Merry Christmasses, Charlie Brown

The frequent reuse of titles for different Peanuts books is one of the tripping points for the collector. Because of that, I should note that the upcoming board book Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown is not the same as the earlier Look-and-Find book Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown. And neither of them is …
