WYST is packing it's bags

It's sometimes easy to forget how good some things are, you get used to and accustomed to good things. one such good thing is the work of Charles Schulz; Peanuts.
It ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000 (the day after Schulz's death) and is one of the most easily identifiable examples of cultural art.
I grew up with Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Snoopy. Their world was a child's world but infused with all the anxieties, struggles and philosophical dilemmas of the adult world.

To say these comic strips were a work of decades long genius is an understatement. There is something nostalgic yet current about these simple line drawings. Cool and intelligent deep and funny. Marvellous stuff!

Charles Monroe Schulz (November 26, 1922 – February 12, 2000)
