Art For Art’s Sake # 187 – 100 Years Of Schulz The Genius

by Richard Bruton

It would have been the 100th birthday of Charles Schulz on 26th November 2022. And the world celebrated a genius…

One of the most impressive tributes came from syndicated cartoonists across the USA all paying tribute to Charles M. Schulz’s 100th birthday in their own comic strips published on his birthday, 26th November. This is a first in comics and cartoons, no one else has ever received this honour and it’s quite right that it’s Sparky’s birthday that’s celebrated this way. 

So, happy birthday Mr Schulz from all of us here at Comicon. We’re forever in your debt for the wonderful comics.

So, let’s open this Art For Art’s Sake with a selection of those syndicated cartoonists paying tribute. You can see the full collection at

Paige Braddock – ‘Today would have been Schulz’s 100th birthday. Charles M. Schulz inspired generations of artists to become cartoonists. He led by example in both craft and artistic integrity. Thank you, Sparky… forever grateful.’

Chris Schweizer:

“Today’s Charles Schulz’s 100th birthday. Peanuts means a lot to me and my family, but there’s one factor of his work that I’ve thought about an awful lot, and which I wrote about in a (comics) essay for a Peanuts tribute book some years back.”


And we’ll end from a little from the absolute master… Mr Charles Schulz…
