Meet the AAUGH Blogger and get free stuff

If anyone’s coming to the Wizard World comics convention in Anaheim, California this coming weekend, please stop by and say hi. I’ll be at table 1914 in Artist’s Alley. And while you’re saying “hi”…

  • If you have a copy of The Peanuts Collection, I’ll be glad to sign it. (A better idea than dragging that hefty book to the convention is to bring one of the removable items from it and I’ll be glad to sign that!)
  • If you don’t have a copy of The Peanuts Collection, buy one from me. I’ll have a special bonus for anyone who buys a copy from me at the show – I will give you an added item for your own Peanuts collection, a set of 33 Peanuts trading cards with the backs in French!
  • And even if you don’t want The Peanuts Collection, you can still get something free from me! You see, table 1914 is possibly the hardest table to find in the whole convention. It’s in the last aisle of tables, furthest from the entrance. And even if you happen to walk by the aisle on either end, my table is toward the middle of the row. And it isn’t on the side of the aisle that’s facing the rest of the convention – it’s on the side facing the nearby wall. So even finding me will be a challenge. Every challenge should have its reward, right? So if you come up to me at my table and say “I found Nat Gertler!” I will give you a free comic book, written by me.

(And because this kind of “comic con” is full of TV stars, wrestlers, and the like selling their autographs, let me make clear that autographs from me – and just about any other comics person there – are free. Even if all you’re getting is a free comic book, I’ll be glad to sign it.)

Spot the Dog

I publish things. I also research things. And really, the two efforts are often one and the same: I research stuff and find that it’s worth publishing; I publish stuff and in the process I’m doing research. That all just happened for me with a syndicated comics panel called “Spot” …

Meet Peanuts!

One of the complaints that Schulz had about his strip being named Peanuts against his wishes is that it lead some people to think that one of the characters in the strip was named “Peanuts.” That was brought to mind when I read this particular strip in a book that …

Be More Charlie Brown impends

I have now received my box of author’s copies of┬áBe More Charlie Brown, which will be officially released next week. This light-hearted self-help book is a follow-up to my earlier (and still available) volume, Be More Snoopy. As I always do with my new Peanuts-related hardcovers, I’m willing to send …
