Peanuts Ramblings, Part Two
So Looked up the books I was talking about and I think this is the set I had, pretty sure. It looks like it came out well before I was born so my mom might have gotten it used.
When I look at my life right now and how happy I am, with the travel and writing and the wonderful readers and collaborators I have in comics, I can trace it right back to this little boxed set of books that first fired my imagination, first made me love comics, and first showed me how dark humor could be. 
I can say without hesitation that I wouldn’t be writing comics if I hadn’t been given this as a child.
Parents. Honest to god. Buy your kids books. 
Video games, electronics, all that stuff is wonderful. But books. Books are the thing, books are still the free ticket to Narnia and Oz and Gotham and Wonderland.  Kindles are great.
Books are the thing.

  3. theimancameron asked: Hey Gail, who's your favourite member of the Peanuts gang?

    gailsimone:

    I always thought the funniest character (after Snoopy) was Sally. 

    But Snoopy, I’m telling you…I love him.

    Here’s the thing, I was born on a remote farm in the boonies. My father didn’t care about books very much and we were pretty poor. But as a kid, I was given (I don’t remember by whom), this beautiful boxed set of small Peanuts hardcover books. It was a nice set for kids, just the strips in black and white. But I thought it was the most amazing thing I’d ever seen and I treasured those books like nothing else I’d ever been given. I read them every day.

    I couldn’t believe what I was reading, the gorgeous cartooning, the depth of the characters (and honest, some of those strips are DARK), I just loved them, and because they were sequential, it was some of my first real extended comics storytelling. They were just incredibly important to me and they fired my imagination and love for comics even before the comic books I would discover later.

    I would read them when I was down, read them on rainy days, I never, ever got tired of them. Later, someone sold them at a garage sale without asking me and I was just heartbroken.

    But I was hooked, I never stopped loving Charles Schulz and Peanuts. I still buy the Fantagraphics collections (which are amazing) and other works. Years later, we would go to Schulz’ beautiful ice skating rink in Santa Rosa, which I fell in love with, I thought i was in heaven. The little diner where you could get hot chocolate was called HAPPINESS IS A WARM PUPPY.

    My husband and I moved to Santa Rosa briefly and we actually saw Charles Schulz at a park one day, and I was way too terrified to go speak to him. This was before I wrote comics myself. 

    People often comment about how I put humor in grim situations in my comics. I am sure they think it comes from reading Grant Morrison or someone like that. Alan Moore or Warren Ellis, maybe. 

    No, it came from the best there ever was…Charles Schulz.
