Fantagraphics

Mark over at Boing Boing points to a an Excellent article about Fantagraphics, the folks responsible for republishing the Complete Peanuts Collection (among many many other things).

Saved by the Beagle

A year ago, Seattle's Fantagraphics was on the brink of bankruptcy. Now it's in the black, thanks to good ol' Charlie Brown—and a pair of dogged believers who turned a cranky fanzine into the most widely respected comics publisher in America. [Seattle Weekly]

I picked up the first volume of the collection and it's great. I plan on picking up a second copy of it to send to my nephew, because every kid needs to experience Charlie Brown. I remember when I'd visit my grandmother as a kid among my dad's old books were a number of old Peanuts books.

Yup. They're doing 2 volumes a year, meaning it'll be 12 years before they're done. Volume 2 is coming out in (I think) November and I've been waiting since May!

They did a bang-up job on the book design, too.
