Have I mentioned that I really like Peanuts?
I think I'm missing some--it is Sunday, after all--but here's what I have:
Andy Capp by Roger Kettle and Roger Mahoney
Bo Nanas by John Kovaleski
Overboard by Chip Dunham
Frazz avoids the watch by stretching out time with an extra-wide single panel. Good job, Mallett.
Today's 1959 Peanuts reprint shows a good SPP in action. (If you ever get tired of my talking about how great Peanuts was, please let me know.)
Over the course of fifty years, Charles Schulz did make some useless, space-filling SPPs--but this is not one of them. He makes the SPP look very easy and natural (as he did with almost every aspect of his craft.) Younger cartoonists copy the rhythm, but can't copy the skill and wit.
