Buried in those issues of Nancy!!

    |    

While working on the John Stanley Library and digging through the stacks of Nancy comics we have here, we kept coming across the occasional Peanuts strip. It had always been my understanding that these strips were not by Charles Schulz but looking at them and reading them it was clear that the artist in question did an excellent job of capturing the look and a pretty decent job of capturing the feel of Schulz’ writing. Fortunately for us, Schulz’ work is very well documented and it turns out that he actually did 37 pages of comics in those issues of Nancy and Tip-Top and Dell Four-Color. The rest were done by long-time Schulz friend Jim Sasseville. There’s an excellent Sasseville interview and breakdown of who did what from Schulz-scholar Derrick Bang here. I highly recommend checking out this piece if you’re a fan of Dell or Peanuts.

The following is a Sasseville story from Nancy #167. It’s really got some of that great giddy kid spirit–a new discovery is the most important thing in the world and has to be shared with everyone.
