For those of you… those of us… headed to the San Diego Comic-Con next month, the Peanuts booth (booth 1637) will have some only-at-Comic-Con items for sale. They have a selection of t-shirts based on visuals from The upcoming Peanuts Movie (twenty-five bucks apiece). and they continue their series of Schleich figurines with one of the Flying Ace. If anyone is hoping to see me there – I’m not on any panels this year, so not only will I only be there for one day, but I’m not sure which day yet. Drop me a line and I’ll see if we can figure something out. And if you’re hoping to attend but haven’t yet made plans… sorry, tickets sold out months ago (and buying tickets on the resale market doesn’t work; they don’t allow resold tickets and have ways to enforce that.)
Looks like a new original graphic novel called Where Beagles Dare! is going to be hitting the market in September 15, which the publisher is promoting as being “in the same style we’ll see them on the silver screen”, but judging by the preview up at the Los Angeles Times website, the volume written by Jason Cooper with art by Vicki Scott will actually look like Vicki Scott’s previous Peanuts work… which ain’t a bad thing!
This is a poster I bought off the one and only Andrea Podley about 5 years ago’ but only got it framed up and hung today (someone is coming over tomorrow, and I need the AAUGH.com Reference Library looking as Peanutsy as possible, just in case having over a thousand Peanuts books in the room doesn’t do the trick.) That first red line says “Snoopy Leaves the World” in Finnish; the second says “Snoopy Pulls Out of the World” in Swedish.
