BC Mag #2: The New Adventures Of Charlie Brown

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by Rick Verbanas

Created by Charles Schulz, Peanuts was first published in October 1950. At its height in popularity, the comic strip was published in 75 countries, in 21 different languages. Generations of readers were able to read the new adventures of Peanuts for nearly 50 years, until Schultz wrote in a Sunday comic in 2000 announcing he would no longer be publishing new stories:

“Dear Friends, 
I have been fortunate to draw Charlie Brown and his friends for almost fifty years. It has been the fulfillment of my childhood ambition. Unfortunately, I am no longer able to maintain the schedule demanded by a daily comic strip. My family does not wish Peanuts to be continued by anyone else, therefore I am announcing my retirement. 
 I have been grateful over the years for the loyalty of our editors and the wonderful support and love expressed to me by fans of the comic strip. 
 Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy… how can I ever forget them…” — Charles M. Schulz

With United Media selling its rights to Peanuts in 2010 (including its strips and branding) to the newly-formed Peanuts Worldwide, it appeared opportunities for finally publishing new material might be possible. In 2011, BOOM! Studios published Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, an adaptation of a direct-to-DVD animation.
