Hommage à Charles M. SCHULZ,
créateur de Peanuts
décédé le 12 février 2000
On December 14th of 1999, a few weeks after discovering he had cancer, cartoonist Charles Schulz wrote the following open letter and announced his retirement from drawing the Peanuts comic strip — a widely adored publishing phenomenon that was read by hundreds of millions of people during its 50 year lifespan.
Sadly, just two months after writing the letter, on February 12th of 2000, Charles Schulz passed away. The next day, the last Peanuts strip — also seen below — was published as planned.
