Peanuts #6 is exactly what you’d expect it to be. Sweet, charming, and funny with loads of heart for kids of all ages.
Writers Paige Braddock, Vicki Scott, Art Roche, Alexis E. Fajardo & Riley Pell-Jenkins all turn in classic style Peanuts tales that are all fantastic. There’s short stories featuring almost all of the Peanuts gang, told using such dead-on character dialogue that you really wouldn’t know that there weren’t all written by Charles Schulz himself. And, for good measure, BOOM! throws in a classic Peanuts strip by the creator himself. Lot of chuckles and smiles in this issue.
Aristis Vicki Scott and Mona Koth do great work in the Peanuts style. Everything looks like it’s part of that universe and they don’t stray one iota from that universally known Peanuts look. Although a couple of these stories are set in modern day, Koth and Scott give them that timeless look that sets them in no specific era of time and these books will work 5, 10, even 50 years in the future.
Grab this comic and read it! Enjoy it! Give it to a friend! It’s a nice change of pace reading these cute and charming stories that feature the eternal group of kids that will (hopefully) never grow up!
