“Peanuts” (July 31, 1983)
by Charles M Schulz (1922-2000)
24 x 17 in., ink on paper
Edge of Seventeen
It’s seventeen years after Schulz’ death, and the strip is from seventeen years before his death.
As of this morning (October 11, 2017), some fast-moving and devastating fires are hitting Santa Rosa, CA, long-time home of the Schulz estate and the Peanuts Museum. Today, the fire was within 2 miles of the museum and its property.
With the current market prices for the few original art pieces out there, I hope that the vaults with the likely-to-be thousands of Peanuts original artworks are buried underground and wrapped with asbestos.
I may only have one Sunday strip in my possession, but it sure is a good one.
