New Peanuts comics anthologies

Coming next year are new anthologies of Peanuts comics stories. Each anthology includes a mix of Schulz strips, stories from the Peanuts comic books, and one new tale. (The solicitation uses the term “graphic novel short stories”, which is a fingernails-on-the-chalkboard term for those of us who recognize “graphic novel” as just being the longform of the existing “comic book story” or “comics story”.)

  • Snoopy Soars to Space, coming in January, focuses on astronautic hijinx, with the new story focusing on Woodstock’s trip to the moon.
  • Adventures with Linus and Friends! includes within its content a reprinting of the graphic novel adaptation of the TV specialĀ Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown. That was a 96 page book, so assuming that they don’t trim it down in some way, it’ll make up most of the content of this 160 page volume. The new tale is about Linus and his blanket.

These are slated to be simultaneously released in hardcover, paperback, and ebook formats.

And as long as I’m covering upcoming releases, there’s also a storybook adapting the recent TV special To Mom and Dad with Love. At 32 pages, I suspect it will be a rather trimmed-down version of that worthwhile special.
