    Peanuts A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz HC (2015 Boom Studios) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Cover by Scott Newman. What's To Love: No one can deny the cultural impact of Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts, and it has been a singular honor for us to be able to continue his legacy. In 2015, Peanuts celebrates its 65th anniversary, so we thought there was no better way to recognize Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the gang than to invite some of the world's best-known names in comics, children's books, comic strips, cartoons, and webcomics to come together and show their love for Schulz. What It Is: Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz is a giant love letter from creators new and old from comic strips to webcomics, children's books to comic books. Unprecedented at this scale, it is very rare for the Schulz estate to allow other cartoonists to illustrate the Peanuts gang in their own signature styles. This collection of original stories, pin-ups, and strips pay tribute to Schulz and the world of Peanuts, and includes contributions from Matt Groening (The Simpsons), Raina Telgemeier (Smile), Jen Wang (In Real Life), Patrick McDonnell (Mutts), Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Terry Moore (Rachel Rising), Mike Allred (Silver Surfer), Paul Pope (Battling Boy), and many more. Features an introduction by Lincoln Peirce (Big Nate). Authors/Artists (complete): Mike Allred, Art Baltazar, Paige Braddock, Megan Brennan, Frank Cammuso, Colleen Coover, Evan Dorkin, Chynna Flores, Julie Fujii, Shaenon K. Garrity, Melanie Gillman, Jimmy Gownley, Matt Groening, Dan Hipp, Dave Kellett, Keith Knight, Mike Kunkel, Roger Langridge, Jeff Lemire, Jonathan Lemon, Patrick McDonnell, Terry Moore, Dustin Nguyen, Molly Ostertag, Lincoln Peirce, Paul Pope, Hilary Price, Stan Sakai, Chris Schweizer, Ryan Sook, Jeremy Sorese, Raina Telgemeier, Richard Thompson, Lucas Turnbloom, Jen Wang, Mo Willems, Caleb Monroe, and more!
