The Big Boxes

I’m oddly happy about the fact that the boxed sets of the Italian edition of Complete Peanuts have not two volumes in them, but five, giving you a complete decade in one toss. I also rather like that this box shot is one of the images that their Amazon UK listing presents: …

Kong: Snoopy Island

I went to see the film Kong: Skull Island last night, and in addition to noticing that it was a beautifully shot, and very much the film it should be (a well-made piece of fluff), I noticed that it’s the latest film for the Peanuts crew to make a sneak appearance …
