Tag Archive: Peanuts comic book preview


Review by C.J. Bunce

Anytime is a good time for more Charles Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of Charles Schulz’s gang of pals from Peanuts.  Running continuously for 50 years, Schulz has the record for the longest story ever told by a single person.  That’s 17,897 strips in 2,600 Sunday and daily newspapers in 75 countries.  And if you were a kid (or kid at heart) in the 1960s and 1970s, the only thing better than the day’s new comic strip was grabbing at a newsstand, grocery store check-out, or library one of the several paperback collections of the strips to gobble up at once.  Titan Comics has been reprinted facsimile editions of the entire library of these books and the latest, It’s a Dog’s Life, Charlie Brown, arrives this month.  You can pre-order it now here at Amazon, or choose from all the past re-issues here.

It’s Comic Shop Wednesday!  Haven’t been to your comic book shop lately?  We have six hi-res previews for borg.com readers courtesy of BOOM! Studios of what you’ll find in stores today–so you can see what you’re missing.

Look for Venus from writer Rick Loverd and artist Huang Danlan.  Pauline and the rest of the survivors from the Mayflower take stock of the base on Venus, but there’s a saboteur in their midst who’s sowing tension in the ranks.

We love writer Dan Abnett and artist I.N.J. Culbard’s Wild’s End: The Enemy Within.  The group of anthropomorphic townspeople is scattered in the woods of Lower Crowchurch as an alien threat returns.

In The Spire from writer Simon Spurrier and artist Jeff Stokely, Meera is held by the Zoarim at their camp as part of the Pax proceedings.  But she’s not alone.

In the ongoing sequel to John Carpenter’s Escape from New York by writer Christopher Sebela and artist Maxim Simic, Snake Plisskin prepares to defend his property from the government.  At any cost.

BOOM! Box, the BOOM! Studios imprint for kids titles, has two great issues out today from Peanuts and Munchkin.
