Color me sad. When I read the blurb for Peanuts: Friends Forever 2016 Special #1, I felt the need to review it. For you see, this appears to be the end of this run of Peanuts comics. It seems that Charles Schulz‘s creations have been a part of my life since birth. And in a way, they have.
My mother’s best friend gave me a crocheted blanket and matching pillows when I was born and to this day, forty-six years later, they reside with me in my home. I’ve included a photo of the pillows below. It was a heartbreaking day when Schultz passed away in 2000, but this also stings a little. Having to say goodbye sucks.

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.

This introductory issue to Kaboom’s ongoing Peanuts monthly features two new stories and four classic Peanuts strips. Realistically, maybe they shouldn’t have packaged new stories with the classic ones. At times, the difference is pretty jarring.
Now, let’s be honest here. Trying to follow the work of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz has got to be a daunting, to say the least, task. Schulz not only created these beloved characters, he drew every single Peanuts strip for almost 50 years.
