From the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, at a time when his popularity was exploding, Charles Schulz was also drawing single-panel cartoons about teenagers for a magazine aimed at church-going youth. With his usual wit and vast human insight, Schulz found the humor teen life, church groups, dating, religion, family, sports, and the teen version of spirituality.
While scattered collections of these comics had come out over the years, most were long out of print and some had never been collected before. Now, About Comics offers Schulz's Youth, including not only hundreds of these cartoons, but also teen cartoons that Schulz did for other publications. And as an added bonus, there are dozens of cartoons about very young children which Schulz crafted for the book Two-by-Fours. The book has a foreword by Jerry Scott, writer of the popular daily comic strip Zits.
Schulz's Youth is available in two formats. The paperback (ISBN 0-9753958-9-0, $14.95 US) can be purchased at better comic book stores and major bookstores, including online stores like Amazon.com. The hardcover (ISBN 0-9790750-1-7, $21.95 US) is available only through comic book stores (including online shops) and at the Charles Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California.
