    Why is this not being reported on the main Cartoon Brew site? This is huge news!

    Poor Charlie Brown, nobody cares about him.

    This graphic novel looks amazing though!

  • Mister Twister

    Why make this?

    50 years worth of strips isn’t enough?

    Interesting that they’re using the Dell Comics version of the “Peanuts” logo.

    Wish they would reprint some of those.

      I think it’s better that they’re doing new stuff. The Dell comics were never any good.
