Just out from the good folks at Creative Associates in Santa Rosa, California (in collaboration with Boom!Studios) an excellent last-minute gift -- It's Tokyo, Charlie Brown! This beautiful new Peanuts graphic novel was written and drawn by Vicki Scott and inked by Paige Braddock (creator of Jane's World). Here's a link to a terrific interview with Scott and Braddock about the project and the care with which they shepherd Sparky's creations. In the course of the interview they mention another Creative Associate who's also on GoComics; Justin Thompson (creator of Mythtickle). And Vicki Scott's husband Bob is the creator of Molly and the Bear. If I could only come up with one more CA-GC connection I'd earn my karass-spotter pin. Arggh! So close.
