(Schulz, 1977) An original hand-drawn "Peanuts" comic strip by the series creator, Charles Schulz. The strip was originally published on January 7, 1977 and was obtained directly from Schulz that same year. The comic features two of the series most endearing characters, Snoopy and Woodstock, as they sit atop Snoopy's doghouse and discuss the falling snow. The artwork is all original and is accomplished in ink on a horizontal sheet of artist's paper. Schulz drew within pre-printed panel templates, so the four boxes and the title "Peanuts" are printed, with the characters, doghouse, snow, text, and Schulz's signature all created by hand in ink. The copyright information on the left-side is trimmed and applied onto the sheet. This original comic strip measures approximately 8"x30" within an 8.75"x30.75" frame. The artwork is unexamined out of frame, but appears to be in very good condition with minor handling wear from its original use. The back of the frame has a newspaper clipping adhered that shows the comic in its original use, and a few newspaper articles are included that discuss Schulz's career.
