    With contributions by Leonie Brialey, MJ Clarke, Roy T. Cook, Joseph J. Darowski, Ian Gordon, Gene Kannenberg Jr., Christopher P. Lehman, Anne C. McCarthy, Ben Owen, Lara Saguisag, Ben Saunders, Jeffrey O. Segrave, and Michael TisserandThe Comics of Charles Schulz collects new essays on the work of the creator of the immensely popular Peanuts comic strip. Despite Schulz's celebrity, few scholarly books on his work and career have been published. This collection serves as a foundation for future study not only of Charles Schulz (1922-2000) but, more broadly, of the understudied medium of newspaper comics.Schulz's Peanuts ran for a half century, during which time he drew the strip and its characters to express keen observations on postwar American life and culture. As Peanuts' popularity grew, Schulz had opportunities to shape the iconography, style, and philosophy of modern life in ways he never could have imagined when he began the strip in 1950. Edited by leading scholars Jared Gardner and Ian Gordon, this volume ranges over a spectrum of Schulz's accomplishments and influence, touching on everything from cartoon aesthetics to the marketing of global fast food. Philosophy, ethics, and cultural history all come into play. Indeed, the book even highlights Snoopy's global reach as American soft power.As the broad interdisciplinary range of this volume makes clear, Peanuts offers countless possibilities for study and analysis. From many perspectives--including childhood studies, ethnic studies, health and exercise studies, as well as sociology--The Comics of Charles Schulz offers the most comprehensive and diverse study of the most influential cartoonist during the second half of the twentieth century.

    What happens when an eight-year-old mischievous boy genius becomes best friends with the brilliant-though-humble elementary school janitor? Pages upon pages of hilarious comic strips, of course! Caulfield gets a kick out of frustrating his mean old third-grade teacher, Mrs. Olsen, by cracking wise-guy jokes and facetious questions; his reward is detention, where he gets to spend time with the equally quick-witted janitor Frazz. The two spend conversations discussing everything from math to literature with funny insight accessible to readers of all ages. This e-book original collection of Frazz strips compiles the most amusing—and most touching moments as the friendship between the unlikely pair develops. Cogito, Ergo Caulfield is not only a celebration of creativity and clever humor, it also includes exclusive commentary from Frazz’s creator, Jef Mallet himself. Mallet’s work was nominated by the National Cartoonists Society for a Reuben division award for Best Newspaper Comic Strip in 2004, and Frazz has won two Wilbur Awards in 2003 and 2005, which honors excellence in communicating values and ethics. Indeed, within Frazz’s jokes and antics is the heart of the strip: an illuminative approach to learning, which is fun for kids and inevitable for adults.
