The long-running comic strip Peanuts has been sporting its own comic book from KaBOOM! Studios and Geeks of Doom has been given the exclusive to reveal the covers for Peanuts #11.
Created by the late Charles M. Schulz, the comic book captures the soul and essence of the strip, which showcased characters such as the doomed to failure Charlie Brown, the irascible fussbudget extraordinaire Lucy Van Pelt, the musically inclined Schroeder, the lyrical and soulful blanket-carrying Linus Van Pelt (Lucy’s long-suffering brother), the rugged Peppermint Patty, and the eternal dreamer and independent stalwart beagle Snoopy, to name a few.
Check out the exclusive first look at the covers for Peanuts #11 here below, along with the official solicitation for the issue.
This latest installment of the comic book finds Lucy giving Schroder (who she has eternal unrequited love for) lessons on how to make “real music” since she has no conception of the baroque Beethoven he always plays on his toy piano, the return of the incomparable Joe Blackjack, a memorable character portrayed by Snoopy in a long line of memorable characters, and the first appearance of Snoopy’s desert dwelling sibling, the emaciated but charming Spike.
For all ages, the Peanuts comic book keeps alive a series that is timeless, always thought-provoking, hilarious, and endearing. Don’t be a blockhead, make sure to check it out!
Lucy has had enough of Beethoven. As she puts it, anyone can “sprinkle dots on a page.” With all the persuasive power she can muster, Lucy will finally show Schroeder how to make some “real” music. This and many more stories, including the return of the infamous Snoopy persona, Joe Blackjack, can be found in this latest heartwarming issue of Peanuts.
