Amazon just updated their page for the Peanuts Artist’s Edition. They say it will be in stock next week, which means they probably already have the shipping information from the publisher. My copy is scheduled to arrive here Wednesday. And their price, while not quite as cheap as it was, is still cheaper than any other current price I’ve found, once you include the free shipping… cheaper than buying it through IDW, cheaper than the eBay sellers I checked. So I’m doing my happy “I’m getting a big book!” dance.
My copy of POW! arrived yesterday, so that’s shipping. And hardcover Complete Peanuts volume 21 and the first volume of the paperback edition of Complete Peanuts started shipping last month, and I forgot to note it. Now it’s noted.
A few days ago, I noted the appearance of Snoopy’s Happy Day: A Finger-Puppet Book in the Amazon catalog. Today, I notice it’s gone; if you go to the page for the book, you’ll find that it is now titled UNTITLED, written by that great sage, TBA. Is it something that was announced too early? Just something that shouldn’t have been announced at all? I cannot tell.
I just got a statement from Amazon that my copy of Peanuts Artist’s Edition will be shipping… sometime between August 4 and October 1. That seems very odd for a book that has already printed (perhaps they got confirmation of a second printing?) Now I won’t be sure what to do. (And I know they’ll have a nice stack of them at the San Diego Comic-Con when I go there in four weeks…) And they are taking orders for them again…
