Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare! Original Graphic Novel Cover by
Vicki Scott, Paige Braddock, and Nina Kester
August 27, 2015 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – KaBOOM!, the award-winning, all-ages imprint of publisher BOOM! Studios, gets ready to send Snoopy off on a secret World War I mission this September in Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare!, a new, original graphic novel from writer Jason Cooper and artist Vicki Scott that serves as a great accompaniment to the upcoming The Peanuts Movie.
“Where Beagles Dare! is our fourth Peanuts original graphic novel and it continues to be an honor to work with Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates to produce these new stories,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “With November’s The Peanuts Movie featuring a storyline in which Snoopy appears as the World War I Flying Ace, we thought it’d be appropriate to do a new, original story that could stand alongside the film! 2015 is a big year for Peanuts and we’re overjoyed to be part of the fun.”
In Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare!, Snoopy, the World War I Flying Ace, is on holiday in France but his leave is cut short when he’s recruited for a top-secret mission. Snoopy must dodge his way through no-man’s land, go deep behind enemy territory, and battle the Red Baron in the blackened skies above. Will Snoopy ever return home to quaff a few root beers with Woodstock and have dinner with Charlie Brown? Find out in this new original graphic novel, which also features nine pages of behind-the-scenes sketches by artist Vicki Scott!
The Peanuts: Where Beagles Dare! original graphic novel arrives in comic shops on September 23rd with a cover by Vicki Scott, Paige Braddock, and Nina Kester for the price of $9.99 under Diamond order code JUL151096. It will arrive in bookstores on September 29th under ISBN 978-1-60886-711-0.

there’s always something new popping up in the neighborhoods of Tokyo. This time the new kid isn’t so new, welcome to the Snoopy Museum.
Set to open it’s doors around March of 2016, the Snoopy Museum Tokyo is a “cooperative” effort between Sony Creative Products and the Charles M. Schulz Museum.
The Snoopy Museum will display original artwork, vintage memorabilia, and other related artifacts on loan from the Research Center on a rotating, six-month basis.
Advance tickets will become available this December, with pricing details yet to be announced. Oddly enough, the Snoopy Museum is being planned as a non-permanent (similar to the John Lennon museum) facility, and is tentatively scheduled to close its doors for good in September of 2018, we already have our eyes set on it.
Snoopy Museum Tokyo / スヌーピーミュージアム
Address: Tokyo-to, Minato-ku, Roppongi 5-6
Trivia note: the name Peanuts wasn’t something the creator really like. Shultz said ” I have never been very fond of the name”
It’s very hard to find the full show.
With autumn already in full swing, the Peanuts gang prepares for Halloween. Linus van Pelt writes his annual letter to The Great Pumpkin, despite Charlie Brown’s disbelief, Snoopy’s laughter, Patty’s assurance that the Great Pumpkin is a fake, and even his own sister’s violent threat to make her brother stop. When Linus goes out to mail the letter but cannot reach the mailbox, Lucy refuses to help him; so he uses his blanket to open the box, and throws the letter in.
On Halloween night, the gang, including Charlie Brown’s younger sister Sally, goes trick-or-treating. On the way, they stop at the pumpkin patch to ridicule Linus’ missing the festivities, just as he did last year; but Linus is convinced that the Great Pumpkin, recognizing the sincerity of his patch, will come, and even persuades Sally to stay and wait with him. The gang goes off, leaving Linus and Sally behind. During trick-or-treating, everyone gets assorted candy, apples, gum, cookies, money, and popcorn balls except for Charlie Brown, who gets a rock from every house they visit. After trick-or-treating, and another visit to the pumpkin patch, the gang goes off to Violet Gray’s Halloween party. Meanwhile, Snoopy, wearing his World War I flying ace gear, climbs aboard his Sopwith Camel (his doghouse) to fight with the Red Baron. After a fierce but losing battle, Snoopy makes his way across the countryside to briefly crash the Halloween party, where he is entertained by Schroeder’s playing of World War I tunes on his piano, and then goes to the pumpkin patch. When Linus sees a shadowy figure rising from the moonlit patch, he believes the Great Pumpkin has arrived, and faints. When Sally sees that it is only Snoopy, she angrily scolds Linus for making her miss the trick-or-treating festivities as well as the Halloween party as the kids come to take her away with them. As they leave, and still convinced that the Great Pumpkin will show up, Linus promises to put in a good word for them.
At 4:00 AM the next morning, Lucy wakes up and sees that Linus is not in his bed. She finds her brother asleep in the pumpkin patch, brings him home, takes his shoes off, and puts him to bed. Later, Charlie Brown and Linus are at a rock wall, commiserating about the previous night’s disappointments. When Charlie Brown says that he has done stupid things in his life also, Linus angrily vows to him that the Great Pumpkin will come to the pumpkin patch next year
Charles M. Schulz, the most widely syndicated and beloved cartoonist of all time, is also one of the least understood figures in American culture. Now acclaimed biographer David Michaelis gives us the first full-length biography of the brilliant, unseen man behind Peanuts: at once a creation story, a portrait of a native genius, and a chronicle contrasting the private man with the central role he played in shaping the national imagination.
