February Peanuts

I feel like Peanuts was one of the non-adventure strips to really utilize day-to-day storytelling (that’s true, at least for me).  What’s fun is that the characters and their quirks work on the day-to-day level of dramatic build as well as in the one-offs that tie into the strip has a whole.  Here are three from last week that really  stand out.  First, a Charlie Brown freakout:
