Another Peanuts cookbook coming!

Heading our way in October is the Peanuts Holiday Cookbook, a cookbook of holiday foods featuring the Peanuts character. (Hey, does it sometimes seem like I’m getting paid by the word for writing this, like I’ll say a title and then repeat the information that is clearly in that title, …

Coming covers.

We’ve got covers for some of the upcoming releases! The cover for the kid-targeted strip collection Charlie Brown: All Tied Up really helps straighten up the confusion between being tied down and being tied up. This is clearly up. Christmas is Here! is a children’s storybook that’s intended to help …

Born to Draw Comics cover

So now we have a cover for Born to Draw Comics, a September-shipping book on “Charles Schulz and the creation of Peanuts”. The book’s descriptor says that this is a “mixed-panel format picture book biography”, which leads me to think that it’s mostly but not completely in the comics form. If …

Shoot for the Moon, Snoopy cover
