This Year’s Stocking Stuffer

With my publisher hat on, I’ve been reprinting Schulz’s other newspaper feature, It’s Only a Game, in various forms for years. At this point, you can still get the big book with the complete run of the series in color. A few years back, I introduced Bridge Mix, a smaller black-and-white book aimed …

An Amazing Future?

Joe Wos, cartoonist, maze craftsman, and creator of the syndicated feature “MazeToons” (and frequent guest of the Schulz Museum), sent out this image while talking about some unspecified maze collection that will be coming December 2021: Is that a mountain range? The coiled cord of an old telephone handset? A …

Bird On Skates!

I’ve never bought anything from the folks at Hammacher Schlemmer, but I guess they knew I’d want a copy of their catalog with Peanuts on the cover, so they sent it to me. (And if you didn’t get a catalog, but would like to order this item, you can order …
