Doubled themes.

Only two silent penultimate panels today:

Overboard by Chip Dunham
Rose is Rose by Don Wimmer

Overboard is right back on track after only a single day off.

In the double-up department, both Gil Thorp and the 1993 Peanuts reprint have the exact same action and cliff-hanger.

I had never noticed this before recently, but at this point in Charles Schulz's career, he had started going crazy with the zip-a-tone. It doesn't show up well in the scan here, but all the dust and motion lines are intricately cut zip-a-tone strips. Insane.
