    Description

    Charles Schulz - Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 7-12-65 (United Features Syndicate, 1965). Thevery first strip to feature Snoopy as a writer (and designated as such by the official Peanuts web site), this is also the first to show the beagle's attempt at writing the great American novel with the famous words, "It was a Dark and Stormy Night." The gag continued for years, and this is the historic debut of a classic theme of the feature. With Snoopy taking center stage in every panel, this daily is a real show-stopper. Charles Schulz inscribed and signed this strip in its second panel, "For John with best wishes, Charles M. Schulz." The image area of this daily measures 27" x 5.5", and aside from the typical fold between panels two and three, the art is in Excellent condition.
