Big news from Seattle comics publisher Fantagraphics tonight, via the New York Times: President Obama has written the foreword for the upcoming 25th volume of The Complete Peanuts, the chronological reprinting of Charles Schulz's newspaper strip. (This volume collects the very end of the series from 1999 through Schulz's death in February 2000, although a 26th Complete Peanuts volume, collecting ephemera and rare artwork, will be published this fall.) Go read the story to find out how Fantagraphics scored such a coup.
