Charles Schulz Signed Strip
Very desirable four-panel hand-drawn ''Peanuts'' strip featuring two of Schulz's most beloved characters, Snoopy and Linus. Signed strip is dated 19 January 1961 with a ''United Features Syndicate'' label notating the 1961 copyright. Signed ''Schulz'' boldly in the fourth panel. After an emotionally toiling series of strips in which poor Linus has his security blanket continually stolen, this strip shows Snoopy digging up the blanket that Lucy previously buried and hid. Snoopy presents the blanket to an ecstatic Linus and then waxes poetic to himself for his good deed as he lies on his doghouse: ''Every now and then I feel that my existence is justified!'' Strip measures 28.75'' x 6'' with a fold running vertically along the middle. Near fine condition.
