Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz

As just announced by The New York Times, this October, KaBOOM! will publish Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz, a 112-page hardcover that celebrates the 65th anniversary of the beloved title and will collect contributions from over 25 artists from the worlds of comic strips, comic books, and webcomics. Each contributor pays a unique tribute to Schulz and the Peanuts gang with a piece of off-model Peanuts art, along with a short essay. Creators revealed in the Times piece include Jen Wang ("In Real Life"), Matt Groening ("The Simpsons"), Patrick McDonnell (“Mutts”), Stan Sakai (“Usagi Yojimbo”), Megan Brennan (“Adventure Time”), Raina Telgemeier (“Smile”), and Jeff Lemire (“Sweet Tooth”). 

A final cover to the book and more contributors to the project will systematically be revealed over the next several weeks. Please let us know if you are interested in any interview opportunities. In the meantime, below is art from Jen Wang and Jeff Lemire you are free to share.
