Who is Nat Gertler?

Nat Gertler is an American writer who is known for his comics and books about comics. His 2010 The Peanuts Collection received positive reviews in the Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, USA Today and others; the Chicago Sun-Times described it as a "slipcovered museum collection" filled with "treasures," and the Christian Science Monitor described it as a "gold mine of Peanuts memorabilia and removable inserts." Gertler is an authority on the subject of Schulz's Peanuts, and runs an Internet site that sells memorabilia associated with the comic strip. He was nominated twice for the Eisner Award, once in 1999, which is the comic book industry's equivalent to the Oscar Awards, based on his work entitled The Factor about an unseen superhero. Gertler is also notable for founding in 2004 an annual 24-hour long challenge to cartoonists to produce a "24-page comic book". In addition, Gertler has written prose fiction, technical writing, television episodes and a video game script, as well as numerous titles in the Complete Idiot's Guides series of books. He founded a specialist publishing firm called About Comics which manages properties such as The Weasel Patrol, The Factor, Licensable BearTM, and The Liberty Project.
