All Peanuts strips online

As someone who help sells a lot of Complete Peanuts books, it may not be in my best interest to point this out, but all of those strips? It looks like they’re now online. Legally. The syndicate’s website appears to have put their full database up. (At the moment, it lists 21010 strips for Peanuts, but of course that includes reruns.)

I’m about to publish some blank comic books – that’s right, 24 blank pages behind a blank cardstock cover – and am running a contest for what people can do with them. Prizes, even.

I’m trying to spread the word, and I’m bribing folks to blog about it.  You can get your choice from a selection of About Comics products – none of the Schulz books, I’m afraid, but we’ve got other good stuff.
