Beagle Scouts’ Life

With the coming of the Camp Snoopy series to AppleTV+, it is unsurprising that we’re seeing Beagle Scout merch in the pipeline. Among these is Snoopy’s Beagle Scout Tales, next May’s entry in the “Peanuts Graphic Novel” series. As with most of these books, this will combine a new comic …

What’s in the Comic-Con comic

I’ve got a report from the floor on that Beagle Scouts’ Life comic book being sold at the Peanuts booth at the San Diego Comic-Con. Apparently, the comic material in there is all strip reprints, with some newly-recolored Sundays and some dailies. In addition, there’s a maze, a poster, and …

A new comic at Comic-Con

For some reason, the usual announcement of what would be for sale at the Peanuts booth this year just hasn’t shown up. Then cartoonist maze-maker Joe Wos dropped this image on social media: Beagle Scouts’ Life (the name is a play on the Boy Scouts of America magazine, which used …

This is bothering me because it’s not something I’ve ever heard of before, nor am I finding any other reference to …

“Will Ye No Quarterback Again, Charlie Brown?”

I think it’s great that Boom! is publishing a graphic novel adapting the never-produced Scotland Bound, Charlie Brown. This serves the world even better than the adaptations of things like Race For Your Life, Charlie Brown, because that’s available to be viewed in its purest intended form, the film, which can …

Four Color hunt

  A longshot here: does anyone have this copy of this comic? I don’t mean “does anyone have Four Color issue 878?”, I mean do you have this copy where someone has decorated Charlie Brown’s face in this particular way? The guy who sold off this copy because his daughter …

Physical Dell Peanuts Archive

When I reviewed the Peanuts Dell Archive collection of Peanuts comic book stories from the 1950s and 1960s, I was working from a review PDF. Now, I’ve got a physical copy on hand, and I can tell you that this book is well-made.  It’s a nice, solid hardcover, and the …
