Summary "Charles M. Schulz was arguably the most influential and popular cartoonist of all time, and he poured many of his own emotions and experiences into the world of Peanuts over its iconic 50-year run. Now, Luca Debus and Francesco Matteuzzi pay tribute to the master by telling the story of Schulz's life in the medium that made him immortal: the comic strip. Page after page, each strip provides a laugh as well as a piece of insight into his remarkable artist. Starting with the last days of his monumental career, Funny Things leaps across time to narrate both Schulz's creative achievements and the personal episodes that formed him as an author and human being. Readers will delight in spotting the real-life inspirations and references to iconic Peanuts lore-- such as Schulz's love of baseball, classical music, a little red-haired girl, and a sweet black & white dog who might be wiser than any human--intertwined with a profound sense of his religious faith, his understanding of loneliness, his immense creative drive, and his rich family life"--Back cover.
