A clinic in intriguing penmanship, right from the title panel featuring the mean faces of Snoopy and Peppermint Patty snarling at each other from each end of the world’s largest football. It’s goin’ down.
I love the strips where Schulz threw curveballs at the reader; here, he not only draws a tackle between Patty and Snoopy, he surrounds it with words. Most hilarious: SOUND OF GLASS-BREAKING. He coulda just put SHATTER! but he didn’t, ’cause it’s not as funny as SOUND OF GLASS-BREAKING.
Charles Schulz spoke to me in the oddest ways sometimes.
