KaBOOM!, the all-ages imprint of award winning publisher BOOM! Studios, brings us an all new 32-page Peanuts story this month, written by Paige Braddock and Vicki Scott, Braddock on inks, Scott on pencils, and colors by Bill Bedard. Peanuts #25 gives us a break from winter with a fun summer tale entitled, It's Summer Camp Charlie Brown. Light-hearted, smart, and comical Peanuts #25, has that classic Charles M. Shulz feel from start to finish. Reluctant to attend, Charlie Brown debates with Lucy about how he feels about going to summer camp away from his friends. In normal Lucy fashion, she assures Charlie Brown that this won't be an issue.
Braddock and Scott provide us with a dynamite script throughout and allow us to spend time with a bunch of our favorite Peanuts. For me, the scenes with Snoopy and his troop of Woodstock and friends were the most enjoyable. Besides the fun comical script, I found the scenes to be beautifully illustrated. There's something about these characters that automatically makes you feel at home, and the way they are drawn in this issue enhances that feeling.
Overall, we are given a complete tale from Charlie Brown's start at camp all the way to his return home. I definitely recommend grabbing a copy. If you're looking for a kid-friendly comic to introduce to your children this is a perfect opportunity. Although, I myself feel that it can be enjoyed by all ages. There's a bit of clever wit thrown into the book that anyone can appreciate. I look forward to seeing what's in store for the gang in upcoming issues!
