Comments

“Peanuts” from Boom! is celebrating the comic strip’s 65th anniversary; the strip started in 1950.

In time for Black History Month is “The Untold History of Black Comic Books,” a hardcover book that covers the history of Blacks in American comic books. This includes such early books as “All-Negro Comics,” the civil rights oriented “The Montgomery Story,” and “Negro Romance.”

“Exploring Calvin and Hobbes” is a book meant as a companion piece for an exhibition of Bill Watterson’s artwork. The book includes a lengthy interview with the usually reclusive Mr. Watterson himself.
