  1. @Birdie. Who the hell is Shulz?! Half of ANY tribute is spelling the person’s name correctly.

  2. At least three key similarities I see in ‘Peanuts” and “Mutts” are the gentle humor, the character sensitivity, and the minimalist drawings which bring all that out so well.

    BTW, I bet that if Schulz had seen “Cul de Sac,” he’d also praise Richard Thompson.
