Peanuts #1 - the one-off issue from 1953

1 1


Just got this book in from Bob Storms of HighGradeComics. It is a VG copy of a very rare book. Printed in 1953 it is the first comic book to be titled Peanuts. 

I will add pictures of the interior to document the sweet Chuck Brown stories. I have owned several copies of this book over the years and ended up selling a few to people in Japan, years ago. While maybe not an iconic cover, the characters certainly are. I think the girl is a character called "Patty" but not to be confused with Peppermint Patty or the "Red-haired girl' that came later.

That is a nice copy. I keep coming back to look at it. I am hoping to buy more as I find them.
