Since their original publication, Peanuts Sundays have almost always been collected and reprinted in black and white. But many who read Peanuts in their original Sunday papers remain fond of the striking coloring, which makes for a surprisingly different reading experience. This gift box set houses the first golden age of Peanuts Sundays in one gorgeous, full-color coffee table book.

Linked to the new biography by David Michaelis, it focuses on the parallels between Schulz's real life and the strip, as well as the very real melancholy Schulz dealt with his whole life. The book and this episode are both acclaimed, but personally, watching the story of an artist's life always makes me antsy - if they're important enough to write a biography or make a documentary about, I'd rather focus on the work that made them famous in the first place. With Peanuts, the most successful - and most successfully merchandised -- comic strip in history, that's always been easy.

These are beautiful books. Full color dust jackets and numbered bindings make for books that look great next to each other on the shelf. But you'll need a big shelf.
Core Animation: The comic strip as a hutch. Works great and now that it is again on the table, will hopefully happen much more often and open up an interesting craft field for cartoonists. Here, below a picture that the 3-D work in Blender and the Operating principle illustrated.
And in what is going to be my very last calendar update until the next one I would just like to say …. And thatthrough I think the company that sets up those kiosks in the malls from like October through the 26th of December selling calendars, got me this inside a week. I know the classic four-panel era of Peanuts and those panels look wrong.
There are running gags in here, like Charlie Brown working on his own comic strip, where only one or two of the strips made it into previous books, keeping it from seeming like a running gag. There are drawing techniques that are poorly represented in earlier collections, with some of the cartoons showing zonked-out characters with empty pupils, characters making wacky faces, and other odd things. Yes, this is the book with Charlotte Braun, the loud-mouthed curly-haired character who proved too annoying to ever be seen again.
The case of Charles M. Schulz is a peculiar one, because there are really two faces to Peanuts. Hence the response to the well-meaning but somewhat confused Tumblr blog 3eanutswhich gives readers the impression that the original strips need to be altered to bring out their underlying bleakness. Which is too bad, because Peanutsat its best, is the greatest contemporary example of how a uniquely personal work of art can enter the dreamlife of millions.
