Classic Comic Strips Month Starts Today


Fantagraphics, Checker, Drawn & Quarterly, and IDW have declared this month “Classic Comic Strips Month”. Comic strip fans should look for a promotional sampler available in participating comic shops.

This full-color 11″ x 17″ tabloid showcases some of the very finest Gasoline Alley, Dick Tracy, Krazy Kat, Little Nemo in Slumberland, Steve Canyon, Terry and the Pirates, Dennis the Menace, Flash Gordon, Yellow Kid, Little Orphan Annie, Peanuts, and Popeye strips. Designed like an old-time classic newspaper comic strip supplement, […] including many stunning full-color Sunday pages! There will also be a “sequel” of sorts to the hugely popular Unseen Peanuts (an annotated spread of Peanuts strips from the upcoming ninth volume of Complete Peanuts that have never been reprinted since their original newspaper release almost 40 years ago), as well as biographical notes on the cartoonists, a checklist of classic comic strip reprints, and more.

Or, if your shop doesn’t carry it, check it out online. Although I’m sure it looks much better at the larger size on real newsprint!
