I am a rather devoted Neal Adams collector, but I have a fondness for Peanuts books as well. My earliest recollection is from when I started to get back into comic books in 1994. I was at a convention in Detroit, the first one I had ever attended. And there, I found a dealer selling a raw copy of this issue. I instantly had to have it and it started my journey back into comic books. I later went on to have it graded and it came back a CGC 9.4. When I sold my first collection, I sold it as well.
Here is another book that I consider to be Neal's finest work. His run of "wordless" horror covers is just incredible. This is the masterpiece. The saddest part of this drool session is that I used to own a 9.6 copy. I would be happy to buy it back.
My old copy...
This journal is nothing but my own adventure in what books I absolutely want to own. My way of tracking images I find and keeping a record.
I found this on Heritage. It is a book I would really like to own someday. I have a nice 9.6 but it does not have a very nice cover wrap. But I can dream about this one.
