EXCEPTIONALLY LARGE PEANUTS COMIC STRIP POSTER, INSCRIBED BY CHARLES SCHULZ
SCHULZ, Charles M. Poster inscribed. No place, circa 1990. Single sheet of printed white cardstock, measuring 24 by 17 inches. $2000.
Black-and-white poster of a classic romance-themed Peanuts comic strip starring Lucy and Snoopy, inscribed in the title cell: "Best wishes, Charles M. Schulz."
This is a poster-size reproduction of a comic strip originally printed on August 31, 1986, in which Lucy criticizes Snoopy's attempt at writing a story and suggests that he write a romance instead. The text from this comic strip was later used in the script for the 2002 animated short, A Charlie Brown Valentine. "Peanuts first appeared in October 1950 in eight daily newspapers. The feature was immediately popular and was soon picked up by hundreds of other newspapers throughout the country. By the end of the decade Schulz had become arguably the best-known cartoonist in the United States… By the time of Schulz's death [in 2000] he had drawn a total of 18,250 Peanuts strips, and the cartoon was syndicated in 2600 newspapers worldwide, appearing in 21 languages in 75 countries" (ANB).
Fine condition, suitable for framing.
