    Description

    Charles Schulz Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Featuring Alfred E. Neuman Original Art dated 7-5-73 (United Feature Syndicate, 1973). Worlds are colliding! It's the monumental meeting of two of the most iconic characters in the world of comics, as Charlie Brown fearfully awaits the sunrise, only to find... Alfred E. Neuman! Good Grief! And what better association could this MAD-related daily possibly have? The art is warmly inscribed by Schulz to famed MAD and EC editor Al Feldstein, and comes from the personal collection of the artist's family. It even comes with the original mailing envelope from Schulz to Feldstein when it was gifted to him in August 1973, a month after it was published.
    The storyline began with Charlie waking up to discover a baseball rising instead of the sun, the shock giving him a rash on his head; all through summer camp, he wore a sack over his noggin to cover this peculiar problem, and along the way, "Mr. Sack" gets elected camp president! Finally, the rash clears, and our hero must find out if the sun will rise again for him! What a shock ending!
    The art is in ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an image area of 27" x 5.5". As is customary, there's a crease between the second and third panels where the art was folded for mailing; the folding also caused a bit of black ink from lettering to lightly transfer to adjoining panels, but don't worry, we assure you these are minor concerns.
