Sparky's Charlie

Yesterday I bought The Art of Charles M. Schulz. The man was a genius. Sparky and Hank Ketcham were both phenomenal comic artists.

I'm disappointed in myself for having thrown out my first printing of A Charlie Brown Christmas back when I moved out of my parents' house. It was my favorite book as a kid, and brings back a lot of memories.

I regret that I'll never have a chance to meet the one and only Sparky, and I'm so glad that his legend has lived on so strongly, and hopefully it always will!

Man, I always used to hate Peanuts as a kid... but the older I get the more I realize just how BRILLIANT the strip is!

I've never watched the television specials, perhaps I should get on that!

Nice sketch btw!

Reading it now, I actually prefer the 50's strips more than the later comics. When I was a kid, it was the other way around.

And thanks a ton! That means a lot from someone with awesome talents like yours!!
