Simon & Schuster To Republish Boom Studios' Peanuts Comics
Boom Studios has the licensing rights to publish comic books and graphic novels based on the Peanuts characters such as Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Linus, with a series of titles running from 2011 to 2016. Their last books was (I think) Peanuts: Scotland Bound in June 2021, based on an produced screenplay storyboarded by Charles Schultz. Now it seems that Simon & Schuster's Simon Spotlight imprint has added graphic novels to its existing Peanuts publishing program, and they are delving into the Boom library.
The first was Snoopy Soars to Space, in hardcover and paperback,

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and his friends are playing astronauts! Space exploration is all fun and games…until the Cat Next Door begins to stir up trouble! What will the World-Famous Astronaut do? This collection of graphic novel short stories includes the classic graphic novel The Beagle Has Landed, Charlie Brown and is perfect for Peanuts fans across the galaxy.
Adventures with Linus and Friends will be published in March.

No creators are listed, but most stories were originally published in the Peanuts comic series by Boom Studios, by the likes of Vicki Scott, Paige Braddock, Jeff Dyer, Robert Pope, Bob Scott, Scott Heralds, Caleb Monroe, Shane Houghton, Stephan Pastis, Ron Zorman and Matt Whitlock. Hopefully they'll see some of the action.
