KaBOOM! Studios: Peanuts #11 cover banner

The long-running comic strip Peanuts has been sporting its own comic book from KaBOOM! Studios and Geeks of Doom has been given the exclusive to reveal the covers for Peanuts #11.

Created by the late Charles M. Schulz, the comic book captures the soul and essence of the strip, which showcased characters such as the doomed to failure Charlie Brown, the irascible fussbudget extraordinaire Lucy Van Pelt, the musically inclined Schroeder, the lyrical and soulful blanket-carrying Linus Van Pelt (Lucy’s long-suffering brother), the rugged Peppermint Patty, and the eternal dreamer and independent stalwart beagle Snoopy, to name a few.

Check out the exclusive first look at the covers for Peanuts #11 here below, along with the official solicitation for the issue.

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.
