In October ’15 KaBoom will give us a 112-page hardcover to celebrate the 65th anniversary Schultz’s “Peanuts”! The collection features 25 artists spanning the world of comics. From the press release:
Each contributor pays a unique tribute to Schulz and the Peanuts gang with a piece of off-model Peanuts art, along with a short essay. Creators revealed in the Times piece include Jen Wang (“In Real Life”), Matt Groening (“The Simpsons”), Patrick McDonnell (“Mutts”), Stan Sakai (“Usagi Yojimbo”), Megan Brennan (“Adventure Time”), Raina Telgemeier (“Smile”), and Jeff Lemire (“Sweet Tooth”).
Check out two of the pieces:
I hope they give us a look at some of the essays, Charles Schultz was a huge figure not only in comics but in the collective conscience as well. It will be interesting to see what impact he and his work has had on these artists.
