Sunday’s Fun Day, Charlie Brown

Sunday’s Fun Day, Charlie Brown

As a kid, there was not much in book collections when it came to comics. What kids got were Mad Magazine and Peanuts paperbacks. Throughout the years, I amassed a very large collection of Charlie Brown paperbacks. Sunday’s Fun Day, Charlie Brown is a great reprint of the original book printed in 1965. The 12th in the series collects Sunday strips from 1962-1965. This was at the height of Charles M. Schulz’s rendition of the classic characters. Some significant events happened in those three years, one major one is that Snoopy was finally revealed to be a beagle.

Charlie Brown’s America: The Popular Politics of Peanuts

Charlie Brown’s America: The Popular Politics of Peanuts

Peanuts were written and drawn by one man for 50 years. In those 50 years, politics crept in a subtle manner but left a deep imprint. Charles M. Schulz never wanted Peanuts to be a gag comic strip. Peanuts were cerebral at times. Laughter was never the end goal. Peanuts stood above the heap of comic strips from the beginning. Unlike Pogo where politics was the main raison d’etre. Pogo is a brilliantly drawn strip but has lost its meaning with the advancement of time. Peanuts driving force has always been about simplicity at the core. This is why Peanuts is timeless.
