The historic heat wave currently hitting Seattle has us daydreaming about winter. There are so many cool things to look forward to- like wearing sweaters again and spending a lot of rainy days curled up with some good comics. We’ve got some especially fantastic ones set to be published during our Winter 2016 Season and we’ll be introducing a new one each day this week.
Today, we’re proud to announce the upcoming:
Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron
Just in time for The Peanuts Movie, Snoopy vs. The Red Baron collects all of Schulz’s beloved newspaper strips starring Snoopy as the famous World War I flying ace in his perennial battles with the infamous Red Baron of Germany.
Including both dailies and Sundays, Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron follows the valiant and indefatigable Snoopy as, time after time in his doghouse/Sopwith Camel, he braves the wrath of his unseen aerial foe. The brave little beagle’s epic, Walter Mitty-esque battles are brought to thrilling cartoon life.
The Snoopy and Red Baron encounters were some of the most inspired — and most popular — episodes in all of Peanuts, and among the stories most beloved by children and adults alike.
Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron will be released in January of 2016 and will be available for pre-sale closer to the publication date.
200 pages, black and white, 9 1⁄2” x 6 3⁄4”
