Peanuts Wins an Eisner for Three Alum

August 1, 2018

Assistant editors Jason Cooper, Donna Almendrala, Kat Efird, Denis St. John, and Studio Chief Creative Officer, Paige Braddock

In more Eisner news, Celebrating Snoopy won the Eisner for Best Archival Collection / Project Comic Strips. This is great not only for our late, great library benefactor, Charles Schulz, after whom the Schulz Library is named, but also for the Center for Cartoon Studies alum who worked on this project as assistant editors: Donna Alemdrala ′12, Denis St. John ′08, and Nomi Kane ′11.

Celebrating Snoopy is a collection of comics showcasing the beloved character Snoopy. It includes selections from over five decades of comic strips, a foreword by Michael Cavna (writer for “ComicRiffs” at The Washington Post), and an introduction by Steve Martino (director of The Peanuts Movie [2015]). In addition to our alum, the award also goes to assistant editors Jason Cooper and Kat Efrid, and to studio chief creative officer Paige Braddock.
