    Description

    Charles Schulz - Peanuts Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 5-30-54 (United Feature Syndicate, 1954). World champion fussbudget Lucy Van Pelt, came on strong in the 1954 Peanuts Sundays. In one of Charles Schulz's first forays into a weekly continuity, Lucy was mentored by her golf coach Charlie Brown, and in this climatic scene, Miss Van Pelt was but one hole away from capturing the "Women's State Amateur Golf Championship!" This remarkable strip was one of the few times full-figured adults with their heads shown, were seen in Peanuts! If panel three were isolated, who among the legion of Peanuts aficionados would ever guess that it appeared in a Sunday? Astounding! As it turned out, Lucy gave up her shot at the title when she remembered it was time for her nap -- the little gal had her priorities set! This Sunday showcased Charlie Brown and Lucy in nearly every panel. The strip is reproduced on page 221 of Fantagraphics Books' The Complete Peanuts 1953 to 1954. The image area of the strip measures 22.5" x 15.25", and the art is in Excellent condition. This extraordinaryPeanuts Sunday is certain to pique the interest of every comic art collector!
