These interviews delve deeply into the moral, aesthetic, and intellectual foundations of Schulz's worldview and his art. They reveal a man at once humble and self-deprecating, but also assured of his talents and success. Some days he feels like the hopeless, downtrodden Charlie Brown, while other days he revels in being an artist made rich and famous through the sheer mastery of his art.

About the Publisher

Fantagraphics Books

Fantagraphics Books

Fantagraphics Books has been a leading proponent of comics as a legitimate form of art and literature since it began publishing the critical trade magazine The Comics Journal in 1976. By the early 1980s, Fantagraphics found itself at the forefront of the burgeoning movement to establish comics as a medium as eloquent and expressive as the more established popular arts of film, literature, poetry, et al. Fantagraphics quickly established a reputation as an advocacy publisher that specialized in seeking out and publishing the kind of innovative work that traditional comics corporations who dealt almost exclusively in super-heroes and fantasy either didn?t know existed or wouldn?t touch: serious, dramatic, historical, journalistic, political, and satirical work by a new generation of alternative cartoonists as well as many artists who gained prominence as part of the seminal underground comix movement of the '60s. Fantagraphics has since gained an international reputation for its literate and audacious editorial standards and its exacting production values.
