Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare! Original Graphic Novel Cover by
Vicki Scott, Paige Braddock, and Nina Kester
August 27, 2015 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – KaBOOM!, the award-winning, all-ages imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, gets ready to send Snoopy off on a secret World War I mission this September in Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare!, a new, original graphic novel from writer Jason Cooper and artist Vicki Scott that serves as a great accompaniment to the upcoming The Peanuts Movie.
“Where Beagles Dare! is our fourth Peanuts original graphic novel and it continues to be an honor to work with Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates to produce these new stories,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “With November’s The Peanuts Movie featuring a storyline in which Snoopy appears as the World War I Flying Ace, we thought it’d be appropriate to do a new, original story that could stand alongside the film! 2015 is a big year for Peanuts and we’re overjoyed to be part of the fun.”
In Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare!, Snoopy, the World War I Flying Ace, is on holiday in France but his leave is cut short when he’s recruited for a top-secret mission. Snoopy must dodge his way through no-man’s land, go deep behind enemy territory, and battle the Red Baron in the blackened skies above. Will Snoopy ever return home to quaff a few root beers with Woodstock and have dinner with Charlie Brown? Find out in this new original graphic novel, which also features nine pages of behind-the-scenes sketches by artist Vicki Scott!
The Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare! original graphic novel arrives in comic shops on September 23rd with a cover by Vicki Scott, Paige Braddock, and Nina Kester for the price of $9.99 under Diamond order code JUL151096. It will arrive in bookstores on September 29th under ISBN 978-1-60886-711-0.

there’s always something new popping up in the neighborhoods of Tokyo. This time the new kid isn’t so new, welcome to the Snoopy Museum.
Set to open it’s doors around March of 2016, the Snoopy Museum Tokyo is a “cooperative” effort between Sony Creative Products and the Charles M. Schulz Museum.
The Snoopy Museum will display original artwork, vintage memorabilia, and other related artifacts on loan from the Research Center on a rotating, six-month basis.
Advance tickets will become available this December, with pricing details yet to be announced. Oddly enough, the Snoopy Museum is being planned as a non-permanent (similar to the John Lennon museum) facility, and is tentatively scheduled to close its doors for good in September of 2018, we already have our eyes set on it.

Trivia note: the name Peanuts wasn’t something the creator really like. Shultz said ” I have never been very fond of the name”

Growing up with the Peanuts had been something generations of people could collectively say. Then, one day Charles Schulz passed away. It has been a little over a decade ago, and It was a sure bet that the Peanuts went with him. Here we are 2012 and we finally get all new tales of Charlie Brown and the gang.
But,How does the book hold up?
If you thought only Charles Schulz could write for the Peanuts you would be sadly mistaken. But, I’m getting a little ahead of myself. The book isn’t a traditional comic book in the sense of a ” one” cohesive story. The book works more like a anthology, broken up with new short stories and a few classic Peanuts tales by Charles Schulz himself.
The stories not done by Schulz retain all the classic humor and character development we have come to expect from the world of Snoopy and Charlie Brown. There is so much to love about this series that its almost impossible to condense into a few paragraphs. The art work captures the essence of Schulz perfectly, but with a more dynamic perspective we have come to appreciate with modern comics.
It’s still amazes me how seeing Snoopy being used as a blood hound is still funny and classic Peanuts fair. Yet, the use of an almost Will Eisner-esque perspective shots gives new life in the once 2 dimensional world. If you are a fan of the Peanuts or if you have kids, this is a title you need to be collecting ASAP!

Charles M. Schulz, the most widely syndicated and beloved cartoonist of all time, is also one of the least understood figures in American culture. Now acclaimed biographer David Michaelis gives us the first full-length biography of the brilliant, unseen man behind Peanuts: at once a creation story, a portrait of a native genius, and a chronicle contrasting the private man with the central role he played in shaping the national imagination.
