A Bird’s Eye Review

Woodstock: A Bird’s Eye View is a 96-page book collecting 160-some strips featuring Woodstock. Of course, where you find Woodstock, you almost always find Snoopy, so there’s plenty of ol’ banana-nose for his fans, and very little of the other characters.

Joe Cool covers silence

Here’s a first look at the cover of It Goes Without Saying, October’s collection of silent Peanuts strips. I find it amusing that the main image for a book focusing on the lack of words shows a character with words on his shirt. But then, I think it’s odd that …

Puttering around

It’s Par for the Course, Charlie Brown collects golf-related strips from across the entire run of Peanuts. It’s not a complete collection, nor does it claim to be, but it certainly covers the major golf eras of the strip. In fact, reading this forced me to realize how golf came …
