KaBOOM! Celebrates the 65th Anniversary of ‘Peanuts’ with an Over-sized Issue #25
Way back on October 2, 1950, Peanuts made its debut in nine newspapers including The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, and the Boston Globe. Now, KaBOOM! has announced that they will be releasing the first non-anthology issue of Peanuts to honor the 65th anniversary of the popular and iconic Charles M. Schulz comic. Next month, Peanuts #25 will be an over-sized original story inspired by the work of Schulz. KaBOOM! had been previously putting out anthology-style comics of Peanuts over the last two years.
Here is the rest of the press release:
Paige Braddock (Eisner Award-nominated Jane’s World, Creative Director at Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates) and Vicki Scott (The Beagle Has Landed; It’s Tokyo, Charlie Brown!)—two creators who have long worked on KaBOOM!’s Peanuts issues and graphic novels—are taking Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts back to summer camp so readers can escape the winter weather in a 32-page, long-form story.
“Peanuts has been loved across multiple generations, and we’ve had the honor of sharing that love for more than two years now,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “We wanted to celebrate that milestone, and especially the 65th anniversary, with something we’ve never done with Peanuts before, and we’re very excited to show you the results!”
Peanuts #25 arrives in comic shops from KaBOOM! on February 18th with a main cover by Vicki Scott for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code DEC141218. Also available in limited quantities is a retailer incentive cover by Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz. (Please check with your local comic shop on its availability.)
