Description


Charlie Brown comes to life like never before in this giftable pop-up book featuring the first-ever Peanuts comic strip in Here Comes Charlie Brown!
 
Charles M. Schulz introduced readers to “Good Ol’ Charlie Brown” on October 2, 1950, with the publication of the very first Peanuts comic strip—considered the most iconic comic of all time. It is also a perfect haiku of art, text, and paranoia, with a variation of the Browning sonnet “How Do I Love Thee?” thrown in for literary measure. Everything that is great about Schulz and Peanuts is established right out of the gate in these four perfect panels, which have influenced every comic strip that has followed.
 
With this innovative, palm-sized pop-up book, cartoonist and comics historian Gene Kannenberg Jr. brings that very first comic strip to life for a whole new generation, as well as for longtime fans of the classic and beloved brand.
