USA Today’s Free Comic Book Day coverage focuses on the Unseen Peanuts as “the first Peanuts comic book in 40 years”.
Which, to some workable definition of “comic book”, it is. There certainly have been plenty of books of Peanuts comics in that time, but not in the traditional American comic book format (i.e., non-self-covered staple-bound pamphlets about this big with 24-64 pages of contents, primarily multi-paneled comics.)
Oh, I wasn’t questioning it, just highlighting the achievement. It’s a great hook.
We have already received a couple of calls from it! Our local media in WI hasn’t bothered to do any FCBD stories, so at least the USA Today is getting us a bit of attention.
