BOOM! Studios has been publishing new Peanuts comics, which isn’t as odd as it sounds—back when the creator of Peanuts, Charles Schulz, was still alive, there was a monthly comic that was done by other people. So there’s precedent for this. Here’s the blurb for Peanuts #12, which came out this past week: Taking on […]

Review: Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake #1

Fionna_and_Cake_CVA_01

Adventure Time is a cartoon series that is popular with both boys and girls. In its third season they did a one-off episode that gender-swapped all the characters, which surprisingly became one of their most popular episodes. I know my kids loved it. When we went to Wondercon last year, there was a lot of […]

Langridge has been making comics since the […]

BOOM! Studios launched their new line of Peanuts comics a little while, and if that seems rather audacious, given that Charles Schulz was the sole author of the newspaper strip, consider this: I attended the Peanuts panel at San Diego Comic-Con, where I learned, to my surprise, that there were Peanuts comic books in the […]
