Original October 19 post:   Charles Schulz’ Peanuts is one of the most successful and critically acclaimed comic strips around and for good reason.

CSotD: October Fools

  We’ll start today with an “I told you so,” illustrated by Wiley Miller, because I had been telling people to get up here and look at the leaves by Columbus Day Weekend. It was a very good, not quite spectacular year, with a lot of color though a little bit muted. Dr. Johnson said […]

CSotD: Status Quid

Alex neatly answers my usual “where to start” question because I should have pointed out this development when it started, which was Monday. Start there and catch up. I don’t know if it’s a complete game change for the strip, which is generally centered on Britain’s business community, but, then again, it hardly matters because […]

Comic Strip Bon Mots and Who Knows

If you’re not happy with Christmas in stores before Halloween… I’m used to cartoonists getting a week or two into January before pasting the correct copyright notice on those strips. And maybe even getting a bit of a jump by doing it early, say the last week of December. But I think Dana Summers is […]

CSotD: Friday Funnies — Time and Timing

Reply All brings up the concept of wasting time, and, naturally, the answer is to schedule it, making it a cousin of “Let’s do something spontaneous!” My friend Charley’s entire life was spontaneous, and it was exhilarating to be around him, though part of his nature was that he wasn’t around for long. But he’d […]

CSotD: Gander Sauce

I hadn’t intended to lead with this house ad from the Tampa Bay Times of July 29, 1974, but it’s both apt and oddly timed. I was looking for a photo of the original “Point/Counterpoint” segment from 60 Minutes, which inspired the memorable “Jane, you ignorant slut” rants of Saturday Night Live, playing on the […]

Earlier this year, Stephff also gave up cartooning for the Arab News, and issued a longer […]
