I’ve long maintained that comics are the greatest Christmas present since there is a comic for everyone you know, even if they don’t know it yet. So, take a look at the list of titles below and see if there’s something out there for someone you know. Or maybe just pick up something for yourself, because there’s nothing wrong with that. We’ve assembled for you a list of some of the best comics collections that have been released this year, so let’s all find something to curl up with beside a nice fire.

See here below for our Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2018 for Comic Books and Graphic Novels.

Stranger Things/Charlie Brown Christmas Mash-Up

Not only is the Netflix original series Stranger Things a great new show you should definitely check out if you haven’t already, but it’s also perfect for mash-ups! No surprise given the overflowing ’80s nostalgia the show delivers.

A pair of mash-ups have arrived in the past month or so. The first brings the characters of Stranger Things into the animated world of Peanuts for a Charlie Brown Christmas mash-up. The second takes a song by Donald Glover’s Childish Gambino and sets it to that memorable Stranger Things theme. Both of these mash-ups can be enjoyed below.

Peanuts #6 is exactly what you’d expect it to be. Sweet, charming, and funny with loads of heart for kids of all ages.

Writers Paige Braddock, Vicki Scott, Art Roche, Alexis E. Fajardo & Riley Pell-Jenkins all turn in classic style Peanuts tales that are all fantastic. There’s short stories featuring almost all of the Peanuts gang, told using such dead-on character dialogue that you really wouldn’t know that there weren’t all written by Charles Schulz himself. And, for good measure, BOOM! throws in a classic Peanuts strip by the creator himself. Lot of chuckles and smiles in this issue.

Remembering ‘Peanuts’ Cartoonist Charles M. Schulz On The 13th Anniversary Of His Passing

Charles M. Schulz

Today marks the 13th Anniversary of the passing of Charles M. Schulz, whose simple pen and ink comic strip Peanuts parlayed into a worldwide empire of riches, success and set the bar and standard as one of the greatest comic strips of all time.

Schulz, who was a passive and insecure man in real life, utilized those “traits” as the building blocks to the main character of Peanuts, the young tyke Charlie Brown. The sparse-haired, zig-zagged-shirted Brown, became the true embodiment of the seminal “loser” type everyman who seemed to never get a break, let alone an even one, in his life…always coming up empty, always rolling snake eyes with the metaphorical dice he was given.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: Vince Guaraldi Trio ‘A Boy Named Charlie Brown’

A Boy Named Charlie Brown

A Boy Named Charlie Brown, a collection of jazz songs by The Vince Guaraldi Trio which were from the earliest Peanuts television specials, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00, as part of their monthly $5 MP3 Album Deals.

Vince Guaraldi was a jazz pianist responsible for some traditional, samba and bossa nova-style acoustic jazz during his career. He scored a minor hit with the song “Cast Your Fate To The Wind,” which was released in the mid-1960s and won him a Grammy Award. It was on the strength of this song, which netted him the gig to score the Peanuts specials, starting with “A Charlie Brown Christmas” in 1965. That score, became an instant smash and is regarded as a traditional Christmas album to this very day. He wound up scoring the next 15 specials afterwards, all infused with the bright, upbeat fast-paced and sometimes mellow rainy ballads that permeated and made the specials as memorable and identifiable as the animation or the narratives within them. His career was cut tragically short when he died of a heart attack in February of 1976, capping not only a loss to the jazz community, but also ending an era of the sound and feel of the Peanuts specials. Specials continued to be produced well into the 21st century, but replacement sound alike composers for them couldn’t muster up the great energy that came from the mind of Vince Guaraldi, and thus, they were never the same again.

Must See: The Charlie Brown ‘JAWS’ Mash–Up You’ve (Probably) Always Wanted
space
The Movie God   |  @   |  
space

There’s nothing like a good mash–up, and today brings with it a special one to behold.

Artist and cartoonist Charles Forsman has taken one of the most simple and innocent bits of nostalgia in Charles Shultz‘s famed comic strip, Peanuts, with Charlie Brown, and fused it together with the relentless oceanic terror that is Steven Spielberg‘s classic, JAWS.

The mash–up was so popular that the limited amount of 11″ by 17″ prints that Forsman had available were gone in the blink of an eye, which is rather depressing for those of us who see the genius and want to own a piece. But never fear—Forsman is pondering a second print run if it gets enough attention, so let him know how badly you want it on the Twitter…or at least ask him to send me one!

You can see the full Peanuts/Jaws mash–up below now.
