Meanwhile, at Good Comics For Kids...

Snoopy meets Hachiko...and Gojira! That's probably my favorite panel of Vicki Scott's new original graphic novel, Peanuts: It's Tokyo, Charlie Brown!, for the obvious reasons. A Snoopy/Hachiko or Snoopy/Godzilla meeting would have made for a great comics panel, but both in the same panel?  One could hardly ask for a better panel in an original graphic novel about Snoopy, Charlie Brown and their human friends traveling to Tokyo.

I have a short review of the book at Good Comics For Kids, if you'd like to go read it; otherwise, stay here for a few more long seconds and drink in Snoopy's salute to Japan's favorite dog and his cowardly retreat from The King of The Monsters....

The drips-and-drabs standard of storytelling that DC insists on applying to titles like Omega Men & Dr. Fate makes zero sense. These decompressed storylines meander, irritate audiences, drag sales down & the titles get cancelled regular as clockwork.

Sci-fi and magic-tinged tales can be told at a faster, more exciting, more interesting clip. They tend to sell better when this is the case. A tense pace is what made these properties successful, back when they *were* successful. Why does DC insist on following a plebeian publishing formula? Drop the decompressed BS.
