    Charles M. Schulz
    Charles Monroe Schulz was an American cartoonist, whose comic strip Peanuts proved one of the most popular and influential in the history of the medium, and is still widely reprinted on a daily basis.Schulz s first regular cartoons, Li l Folks, were published from 1947 to 1950 by the St Paul Pioneer Press he first used the name Charlie Brown for a character there, although he applied the name in four gags to three different boys and one buried in sand The series also had a dog that looked much like Snoopy In 1948, Schulz sold a cartoon to The Saturday Evening Post the first of 17 single panel cartoons by Schulz that would be published there In 1948, Schulz tried to have Li l Folks syndicated through the Newspaper Enterprise Association Schulz would have been an independent contractor for the syndicate, unheard of in the 1940s, but the deal fell through Li l Folks was dropped from the Pioneer Press in January, 1950.Later that year, Schulz approached the United Feature Syndicate with his best strips from Li l Folks, and Peanuts made its first appearance on October 2, 1950 The strip became one of the most popular comic strips of all time He also had a short lived sports oriented comic strip called It s Only a Game 1957 1959 , but he abandoned it due to the demands of the successful Peanuts From 1956 to 1965 he contributed a single panel strip Young Pillars featuring teenagers to Youth, a publication associated with the Church of God.Peanuts ran for nearly 50 years, almost without interruption during the life of the strip, Schulz took only one vacation, a five week break in late 1997 At its peak, Peanuts appeared in than 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries Schulz stated that his routine every morning consisted of eating a jelly donut and sitting down to write the day s strip After coming up with an idea which he said could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours , he began drawing it, which took about an hour for dailies and three hours for Sunday strips He stubbornly refused to hire an inker or letterer, saying that it would be equivalent to a golfer hiring a man to make his putts for him In November 1999 Schulz suffered a stroke, and later it was discovered that he had colon cancer that had metastasized Because of the chemotherapy and the fact he could not read or see clearly, he announced his retirement on December 14, 1999 Schulz often touched on religious themes in his work, including the classic television cartoon, A Charlie Brown Christmas 1965 , which features the character Linus van Pelt quoting the King James Version of the Bible Luke 2 8 14 to explain what Christmas is all about In personal interviews Schulz mentioned that Linus represented his spiritual side Schulz, reared in the Lutheran faith, had been active in the Church of God as a young adult and then later taught Sunday school at a United Methodist Church In the 1960s, Robert L Short interpreted certain themes and conversations in Peanuts as being consistent with parts of Christian theology, and used them as illustrations during his lectures about the gospel, as he explained in his bestselling paperback book, The Gospel According to Peanuts, the first of several books he wrote on religion and Peanuts, and other popular culture items.From the late 1980s, however, Schulz described himself in interviews as a secular humanist I do not go to church any I guess you might say I ve come around to secular humanism, an obligation I believe all humans have to others and the world we live in.


    This is the penultimate volume in The Complete Peanuts series so I am feeling sad only one volume to go There is some familiar brilliance, a few surprises, and a few strips that are stale ideas that perhaps might not have found their way to print a decade earlier Schulz s hand is not as steady so some lines quiver a touch But in years 47 and 48 of doing Peanuts there is still much that works than doesn t There are fresh spins on perennial jokes Charlie Brown s kick of the football held by Lucy [...]

    In the penultimate volume of The Complete Peanuts book series, we once again find Rerun Van Pelt, Linus and Lucy s younger brother, one of the main characters in the strip This isn t a bad thing as Rerun brought fresh energy and perspective to Peanuts Not that the strip needed it Schulz, even in the final years of his career, was writing and drawing some of the best comic strips ever produced That he was still coming up with fresh ideas and new ways of dealing with some of the tropes of Peanuts [...]

    I like Rerun.

    This volume sees the return of Crybaby Boobie, and Rerun Van Pelt really developing as a character Andy and Olaf s misdirection seems to be the running gag of this volume, with one strip showing Snoopy writing thoughtfully about them and musing we ll probably never see them again Did Charles Schulz just kill off two of his characters I wondered when I read this Continuing the thought, I realized that I was reading the penultimate volume and started wondering about the circumstances and timeline [...]

    I read all the old peanuts books I could get my hands on as a kid For some reason I always assumed that the quality kind of tapered off at the end But it s entirely the opposite These strips from 1997 1998 are exceptionally good.

    There were some gems, but overall the strips in these years were not very funny It was a struggle to get through.

    Rerun is a fun character and a great addition to the cast Marcie is still a shining star in this volume.

    Mark Schlatter
    Lots of good stuff here, especially considering how late in the run this is My favorites included Sally s different philosophies e.g Why are you telling me , Snoopy s brothers Andy and Olaf getting lost again and again, and lots of Rerun in kindergarten There s also a heavy emphasis on Peppermint Patty and Marcie fighting over Charlie Brown it s amazing how many girls get involved with him

    Mister Mank
    This collection contains many strips that are as striking and original as Schulz s 60s work, and at least two strips that made me laugh aloud 6 25 and 6 27 97 Unfortunately, it also contains way predictable and uninspired gags than the previous two collections combined I m not complaining, though Even at its lamest, I m almost embarrassed to admit how much comfort Peanuts provides.

    Mature Schulz is great Schulz, and this book is the proof.

    This is the next to last volume of The Complete Peanuts Any Peanuts fan will enjoy this trip back in time.It was amazing to see the transformation of how the characters appeared.

    Still plenty of smiles to be had in this volume and I m sad knowing there is only one volume to come.
