Perhaps the most influential cartoonist of his generation. The Legacy of Charles Schultz lives on in many a comic book artist and writer today. Charlie Brown is one of the single most recognized characters in the World. The Peanuts strips have been enjoyed by generations of eager fans ready to laugh, live and pass on their enjoyment of Schultz work to audience of all ages.
Now Snoopy, Woodstock and all the rest ready to make their digital debut for the first time in an all new Graphic Novel that serves as both a homage to Schultz’s influence as well as a testament to the great characters fans the world over have grown up with. This week Boom! Studios released a brand new Peanuts Book “Happiness is a Warm Blanket Charlie Brown” on comiXology and we couldn’t be happier to have it as part of our colllection.
While, this is a new book untouched by the late Peanuts creator’s hand it bears all the hallmarks fans have come to love. Stephen Pastis of Pearls before swine and Schultz’s own son Craig prove that brilliant storytelling and master craftsmanship are timeless. Ol’ blockhead is at his finest here, as Boom! Studios carries the torch with honor doing justice to the work of Schultz by maintaining the genuine integrity of his characters.
Charles Schulz’s world-renowned comic strip, Peanuts, takes the stage as a graphic novel! Adapted from the animated special, Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, this timeless retelling takes us back to the neighborhood and features Linus’ insecurities, Charlie Brown’s kite-flying woes, Lucy’s unrequited love for Schroeder, and everyone’s favorite beagle, Snoopy, in a lively and colorful spin through Charles Schulz’s imagination.
