COMPLETE PEANUTS IS A GO!

This is what everyone’s been asking for, begging for.

Now it’s happening.

THE COMPLETE PEANUTS, a set of books reprinting every
Peanuts newspaper strip.

The publisher is Fantagraphics, who has previously collected
such strips as Krazy Kat and Pogo.

It’s a series of 25 hardcovers, each covering two years
of the strip. All in black and white. $28.95 apiece, which
ain’t bad for a hardcover.

First one ships in April, 2004.

The books are being designed by the cartoonist Seth, probably
best known for his graphic novel It’s A Good Life If You Don’t
Weaken, which you can see at http://AAUGH.com/to.htm?189659770X
The vast majority of strips will be reprinted from clean
syndicate proofs.

You can’t preorder them yet.

Believe me, when I have more news, I’ll get it to you. But I
knew you would want to hear this as soon as possible.

Happy now?

MOTHER’S DAY? GOOD GRIEF!

Okay, after that anything is going to be anticlimactic… but
as long as I’m sending out a newsletter, here comes another
kiddie book. GOOD GRIEF, IT’S MOTHER’S DAY! comes out in
April as well. $3.99. http://AAUGH.com/to.htm?0689865899

The Untouchable Charlie Brown

Peanuts First Edition guide

As proud as I am of my Peanuts Book Collectors Guide, it is not the be-all and end-all guide…. and as much as I have visions of making it so, the real life of being a father of two, the runner of a business, a make of dinners, and a …

Peanuts and the public domain

As you may have seen discussed elsewhere, as of today, the first couple Mickey Mouse cartoons are in the public domain in the United States. That means that people are free to make not just copies of the cartoons, but derivative works based on those cartoons. It doesn’t mean that …
