Batman + Snoopy = Very Happy Ben

If its not apparent by now, I’m a fan of comics. Two of my favorite characters in comics would be Batman and Snoopy (of Peanuts fame). So, when I read this week’s Comic Book Urban Legends Revealed (its a weekly series on CBR’s Comics Should be Good blog), I was extremely delighted to see that there was a short Batman comic written in 1981 which homaged Snoopy’s great American novel.

What novel you ask? It was a regular Charles Schulz gag about Snoopy authoring the greatest novel you’ve never read on his cute little typewriter:

Amazing, right? Now, pay close attention to the next four comics:image image image image

Why pay attention? Because then check out the following Batman comic. See anything familiar in the text?

I was in nerd-fanboi heaven :-)

    I found your page here by searching to see if anyone else (besides me) had a drawing by Bob and also one by Charles on the same paper, signed by both. When I saw that you like both of the characters on my special posession I thought I would tell you that I just put it up for sale on Delaware craigslist. Search in collectibles for Schulz and Kane. Drawing is Snoopy AND Batman drawn and signed by each artist at Comic con. Sorry if this looks like an AD it’s targeted at the author here not the masses.
