There have been a large number of biographies of Charles Schulz over the years, with different media, style, and target audiences. But coming next August (and available now for preorder) is an interesting attempt that treads where others have not yet. Funny Things, by Luca Debus and Francesco Matteuzzi, tells about the life of the great comic strip creator via a series of original comic strips. With hundreds of daily and Sunday-format strips used to illustrate aspects of Schulz’s life and character, this is a daring effort. I’ll be interested to see how well they pull it all off.
