Gilson and Clarke (born the same day, November 16, 1965!), both former art school students, earned their spurs in the comic strip world by creating the magazine Cafard together. As a team, Gilson and Clarke discovered the charms of sorcery while launching Melusine in 1995.
François Gilson a créé chez "Spirou" Garage Isidore, Mélusine, Cactus Club et La tribu des Epithètes. Il signe également les gags de Super-Mamie, Hervé T.T., Silence on tourne, ou Le Scrameustache : "Le bêtisier Galaxien"... Il est par ailleurs l'auteur de plusieurs livres pour enfants, nouvelles et dessins animés (Atout Spip). Chez Bamboo, il scénarise Les Vétos.
PEANUTS and its creator, Charles M. Schulz are arguably the world¡¯s most famous newspaper comic strip and cartoonist in history. The Peanuts cartoon strip holds the distinction of being the world¡¯s longest continuing story, running for a staggering 17,897 strips from October 1950 to February 2000.
Peanuts tells the story of meek, nervous Charlie Brown (a boy incapable of flying a kite, hitting a baseball or kicking a football), his dog - Snoopy and his group of childhood friends as they tackle the complexities of modern life: friendships, crushes, first loves, siblings and kicking a touchdown.
This collection of 248 daily Peanuts newspaper strips that appeared between 1955 -1957 features all your favourite characters, including Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Violet, Patty, Shermy, Lucy, Schroeder, Pig-Pen, Linus and Beethoven.
The strip¡¯s bitter-sweet humour and child-like innocence helped to cement the Peanuts comic strip¡¯s popularity and secure its reputation as a true, one-of-a-kind, timeless classic.
This book is a facsimile edition of the fourth Peanuts collection originally published back in 1957 by the Clarke, Irwin & Company, Ltd of Toronto, Canada.
