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.

Let me be straight with you. I adore Adventure Time on Cartoon Network. This means that I am automatically drawn to anything that carries the name. It also means that I’ll be twice as critical. The best parts of Adventure Time, after the stories, are the insane animation. I was a bit worried how this wonderful series would play out in comics form. There are other TV series, animated and live-action, that have let me down when they crossed mediums. After reading Adventure Time #11 I have to say that my fears were unfounded.

Issue #11 is written by Ryan North and is a new arc in the Kaboom production of the comic series. A perfect jumping on point for new readers, including this reviewer.

Cover Price: $3.99

When reading Garfield #2, it’s obvious that this isn’t just another younger readers book. Sure, it’ll appeal to kids, but I got just as much enjoyment out of it as anyone else would.

First off, Mark Evanier wrote for the Garfield Saturday morning cartoons in the ’80s. So, it’s clear to see that he has a fondness for the character and that he KNOWS how to write Garfield, as well as the rest of the cast. Let’s be honest, Garfield is a 3-panel comic strip (more on Sundays) and all that anyone remembers about him is that he loves lasagna, hates Mondays, and is lazy. In this comic, Evanier actually gives him some CHARACTER that totally fits in with everything we’ve ever known about him in the past, and yet, makes him a character that we’re just getting to know. As far as the actual stories go in this issue, it’s classic Garfield and some very fun stuff.

Peanuts 0Peanuts #0
Written by Ron Zorman, Vicki Scott, Charles M. Schulz

Cover Price: $1.00

This introductory issue to Kaboom’s ongoing Peanuts monthly features two new stories and four classic Peanuts strips. Realistically, maybe they shouldn’t have packaged new stories with the classic ones. At times, the difference is pretty jarring.

Now, let’s be honest here. Trying to follow the work of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz has got to be a daunting, to say the least, task. Schulz not only created these beloved characters, he drew every single Peanuts strip for almost 50 years.
