Charles Schulz’s Classic “Peanuts” Will Always Be iconic

5 04 2011

While a new volume of collected “Peanuts” strips is an inferior work of genius, theres also no doubt that it is, still, the work of a genius.

In some ways, the genius shines through even more brightly when the general level is lowered. In the 50s and 60s, Schulz operated at such a consistently transcendent peak that you could start to take him for granted. Here, though, there are dull patches to remind you just how good the good parts are.
