Celebrate the centennial of the birth of Charles M. Schulz with an appreciative look at his creative impact. Through an array of original art from contemporaries and artists working today, we see that no one had a more significant impact on modern cartooning than Charles Schulz. Whether in comics, books, movies, animation, and more, Schulz’s influence continues to shine.
