Exclusive Preview: Go To Summer Camp With Charlie Brown For The ‘Peanuts’ 65th Anniversary Special

KaBOOM_Peanuts_25_hed

This year marks the 65th anniversary of Charles Schulz' Peanuts, the syndicated comic strip widely regarded as not just one of the greatest works of its kind, but as one of the great works of American comedy in the 20th century. For an extraordinary fifty-year run, Schulz told the story of neurotic schoolyard philosopher Charlie Brown, his dreamer beagle Snoopy, and their eternally young cohort of broadly-drawn kids with surprisingly complicated souls.

It's been fifteen years since Schulz ended his run, which means there are kids Chuck's age who were born years after Peanuts. Thanks to Boom Studios' KaBoom imprint, these kids aren't growing up in a world where Peanuts is the sole preserve of nostalgic grown-ups. KaBoom has been reprinting Schulz's stories alongside new strips by today's creators, all aimed at a contemporary audience of kids. The 25th issue, out next week, celebrates 65 years of Peanuts with an ad-free 32-page original story by Paige Braddock and Vicki Scott, and KaBoom have given us an exclusive preview to share with our readers.

Push Comics Forward: Talking About The Future With Boom EIC Matt Gagnon

boom featured image

Boom Studios has a reputation in the comics industry for publishing an increasingly diverse group of books and creators. This commitment to diversity in genre and people is reflected in an all-new initiative the publisher announced today in Previews with a letter from founder Ross Richie. While 2015 is the 10th anniversary of Boom, the publisher wants to talk about what's next rather than what's come before. They call this discussion of the future Push Comics Forward and they don't want it to be only about Boom.

Push Comics Forward is Boom's way of focusing on the ongoing conversation about diversity and the future of the industry. To learn more about this initiative and what to expect from Boom for the next ten years and beyond, we spoke with Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon.

‘Peanuts’ Movie Teaser, Images Promise All The Snoopy You Could Want And ‘No Twerking’

Peanuts movie CGI main
Blue Sky Studios

Charles Schulz's much beloved, long-running comic strip Peanuts is coming to theaters in a new, all CGI film in November 2015, and fans got their first look Tuesday via a few images and a 60-second teaser from Blue Sky Studios.

From the looks of it, fans should probably feel pretty encouraged. Not only do the movie characters look a whole heck of a lot like Schulz's comic designs (or at least 3D versions thereof), but the teaser indicates that the unforgettable Vince Guaraldi music that accompanied Peanuts TV specials for decades will be used. Check out the teaser and images after the jump!

‘Hey Ya!’ Is Ten Years Old Today, And You Should Celebrate With The Peanuts Gang [Video]

Andre 3000 Peanuts Gang

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of the release of Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, the multi-platinum selling double album from Outkast duo Big Boi and André 3000. The effort produced several memorable tracks, but easily the most successful was André 3000's "Hey Ya!," a song that spent several months dominating radio waves, high school proms, and pretty much every kind of party imaginable in a way that maybe no other has in the 21st century.

So what does this anniversary mean, exactly? Well, three things: You are now officially old, I am now officially old, and we all have an excuse to revisit the Hey Ya!/Charlie Brown Christmas video mashup that I have loved unequivocally since the day I first set eyes on it.
