The Keyring Komix

AAUGH Blog reader Douglas believes he has acquired a complete set of those Hallmark books-on-keyrings that I’ve blogged about recently, and was kind enough not only to share his list of what titles exist – he actually offered up his doubles for the AAUGH.com Reference Library, doubling up the number …

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 …

What the well-dressed cartoonist is drawing.

We’ve got a cover for The Great American Story of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the Peanuts Gang! (part of the History of Fun Stuff line) which comes out in just a couple of weeks. It’s an eye-catching piece, and I like it… but with a wry smile at its intentional ridiculousness. I mean, …

The Flying Ace’s keyring

When collecting Peanuts books, there are often times where I have to ask myself “is this a book?” One of these is an odd line of items that Hallmark out out in the 1970s, which I mentioned a couple times over the past decade. They are bound by a single …

There may be ad money better spent

If you go to ToysRUs.com and search for Peanuts, you get a screen like this one, bracketed with ads for The Peanuts Movie – only in theaters. Of course, The Peanuts Movie left US theaters over 10 months ago, after the last 15 theaters showing it had a final weekend where …

A look back at the AAUGHdobon Society
