Dear Santa,

I've been a good boy this year. Mostly. I think. Anyway, I haven't killed anyone, so how about giving me a subscription to The Complete Peanuts, a series of hardcover books soon to be published by Fantagraphics?

From a news item on ICv2:"There is good news today, boys and girls -- Fantagraphics has announced that it will be publishing the complete Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz. Peanuts debuted on October 2, 1950 and soon became a mainstay of the comic section of most major newspapers for its 50-year run, which ended with Schulz's death in 2000. Fantagraphics will reprint the complete 50-year Peanuts cycle in chronological order, with each reprint volume containing two years worth of daily and Sunday strips. The first of the 25 volumes will come out in April 2004. Fantagraphics plans on publishing two volumes per year -- so the entire project will take 12 and one-half years. The Canadian artist Seth (Palookaville) will be designing the volumes, which is a definite coup for Fantagraphics. Anyone familiar with Seth's work will agree that he is the perfect choice to design what should be the strip reprint event of the decade. Each 8" x 6.5" hardcover volume will have approximately 320 pages and a cover price of $28.95." (Complete article here.)

Please please please. :) This sounds like the collection I've been waiting for since I was a kid and utterly enthralled by the misadventures of Snoopy and Company. Luckily, as an adult, I actually have a shot at being able to afford the damn things, in case Santa doesn't come through.

Oh, and on an unrelated note, here's an open letter on Bookslut to comic book reviewers.

About us

Best described as a Murakami detox support group, we're all fans of the quirkily brilliant Japanese author, Haruki Murakami, and writing about such things as films we've seen recently and books we're reading (not to mention meandering musings on the man's work, of course) helps us to pass time while waiting for the next book from Haruki-baby.
