Peanuts Christmas stamp oddity

We got this computer -generated Charlie Brown Christmas stamp in the mail yesterday. It's almost but not quite the same as the printed stamps. Does anyone know anything about these? Do they mirror all 10 stamps in the book?

Stamp on comic book sketch cover by Frank Cho

I haven't seen this before - a blank comic book cover with art by Frank Cho and a cancelled Star Wars stamp. It looks as though the stamp and cancellation were done before the drawing.

Asterix stamps from Germany

These were issued on September 1, 2015 I believe. There's a booklet, a sheet and a set of postal stationary at least.

These images are from e-bay where I bought my sets earlier today.

A Kickstarter campaign for Moonshot, a Canadian comic anthology had the following reward:

Mine arrived this week, and you can see them in the image to the left, along with a bookmark by Veregge.

"Superman stamp" on display in Arlington Public Library's Central branch

This painting by a student of a "Superman stamp"  is on display in Arlington Public Library's Central branch. I really like it. Unfortunately I can't quite read the caption to properly credit the artist.

R. Robinson's Comics FDC blog

I've mentioned R. Robinson's Comics FDC blog before, but he's got a nice post of Batman special cancellations at http://comicfdc.blogspot.com/2015/01/anthony-marques-shadow.html and I'm really envious of this one of The Shadow - http://comicfdc.blogspot.com/2015/01/anthony-marques-shadow.html
