Funny Things is a beautiful and clever new way for the world to get to know the dear friend and mentor I knew for thirteen years.”

– Lynn Johnston, creator of
For Better or For Worse

“The human being — self-doubting, proud, committed and sometimes dark — who forged one of the most significant artistic creations of the 20th century comes through in these pages. By using the visual language of the Peanuts comic strip, Debus and Matteuzzi tap into our collective unconscious... It’s a brilliant conceit, and it took cojones to do it. Hats off.”

— Jeff Smith, The New York Times

Discover the man behind Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the Peanuts gang

Charles M. Schulz was arguably the most inflfluential and popular cartoonist of all time, and he poured many of his own emotions and experiences into the world of Peanuts over its iconic 50-year run. Now, Luca Debus and Francesco Matteuzzi pay tribute to the master by telling his story in the medium that made him immortal: the comic strip.

Page after page, each strip provides a laugh as well as a piece of insight into this remarkable artist. Filled with affection, charm, and poignant insight, Funny Things imagines Schulz through the lens of his own art form, inviting us all to meet the man behind the blanket.
