Comments: Comments: Classic Peanuts Strips by Charles M. Schultz, colors by Justin Thompson, Katherine Efird, Donna Almendrala & Art Roche.
Charles M. Schultz was a genius at creating these strips. The art is eye catching illustrating all your favorite characters.
“Charlie Brown’s Star” Story by Jeff Dryer, pencils by Scott Jeralds, inks by Justin Thompson, colors by Nina Taylor Kester and letters by Steve Wands.
Charlie Brown finds his star and it is a small pathetic thing just like Charlie Brown. The art looks amazing with Charlie, Linus and Lucy. It is a nice fun short story.
“Public Speaking” Story & layouts by Bob Scott, pencils by Mona Koth, inks by Justin Thompson, colors by Lisa Moore and letters by Alexis E. Farjardo.
Charlie gets all ready to delivery an oral speech. He practices for it and works really hard. He still has the same luck though poor Charlie Brown. The art is beautifully done in the traditional style.
“The Carousel” Story & art by Charles M. Schultz, layouts & letters by Donna Almendrala and colors by Nina Taylor Kester.
Lucy acts all non emotional as she points out Charlie’s faults. There are many and various kinds. Does this help Charle well no but Lucy has fun. We kind of take some joy in seeing he has all these faults cause it makes him like us, none of us are perfect either. Beautiful art accompanies this story.
“Snowball’s Chance” Story & layouts by Justin Thompson, pencils by Vicki Scott and inks & colors by Paige Braddock.
Lucy and Charlie Brown have such a wonderful love/hate relationship. They do really care about each other. Great art accompanies this story as well.
“She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not” Story by Jeff Dyer, art by Andy Hirsch, colors by Lisa Moore and letters by Steve Wands.
Poor Charlie Brown its Valentines Day and he so wants a Valentine Card. You can not help but feel sorry for him. His life can suck at times and he does nothing to deserve it. The art brings out the sadness of this story.
“Poor Chuck” Story & art by Charles M. Schulz, layouts & letters by Donna Almendrala and colors by Lisa Moore.
Peppermint Patty is a strange girl. She has a way of looking at things that are not at all realistic. Poor Chuck is on the receiving end as usual. Charlie Brown is drawn in the traditional style your accustomed to.
“Dear Pen-Pal” Story & pencils by Vicki Scott, inks by Paige Braddock, colors by Art Roche and letters by Donna Almendrala.
For Charlie having a younger sister to help him is not all its cracked up to be. Sally is shown as so annoying. The art again is wonderful.
“Blind as a Bat” Story by Jeff Dyer, art by Scott Jeralds, inks by Justin Thompson, colors by Lisa Moore and letters by Steve Wands.
Charlie Brown and the gang are playing baseball at night. It being so dark does make for some funny scenes. Charlie does have some good ideas that are just bad once you turn them into reality. The art is beautifully done.
“Football Basics” Story & pencils by Vicki Scott, inks by Paige Braddock, colors by Donna Almendrala and letters by Alexis E. Farardo.
Charlie Brown’s football career is short lived. As a football player he makes a good baseball pitcher. Poor Charlie Brown things just do not work out for him. Cool art lets you know Charlie does get into pathetic situations in how he is drawn.
“Fight For Flight” Story by Shane Houghton, art by Matt Whitlock and colors by Lisa Moore.
Charlie Brown and his kite eating tree make for the funniest situations you can imagine and the strangest. The art is simple yet it works so well.
“Spring Training” Story by Shane Houghton, art by Matt Whitlock and colors by Lisa Moore.
Charlie Brown how can you not feel sorry for him. He is a loser with a heart of gold. Great classic art on the baseball field here.
“Get Well Soon, Charlie Brown” Story by Charles M. Schulz, adapted by Jason Cooper, pencils by Vicki Scott, inks by Paige Braddock, colors by Nina Taylor Kester and letters by Donna Almendrala.
Charlie Brown feels sick and we see that he is really loved by all. Lucy may pick on him all the time but she still cares. Great art in this classic strip.
Charlie Brown is a timeless classic and is beloved by all.
