Gallery: Mondo's 'It’s An Art Show, Charlie Brown'

On October 2, 1950, a little comic strip debuted in seven newspapers and proceeded, in the years that followed, to change the form - and, in its own small way, the world.

Charles Schultz's "Peanuts" turns 70 next year, and the celebration is begining in Austin, Texas this weekend. Tonight, Mondo Gallery opens "It's An Art Show, Charlie Brown," which reproduces sixteen iconic "Peanuts" panels and cartoons (via screenprints by Lady Lazarus Press). These moments elegantly articulate part of what makes the strip so timeless: a sense of existential ennui, which makes them particularly poignant in these nerve-racking times.

We're pleased to share some of our favorites (five of them exclusive to Flavorwire); keep an eye on Mondo's site if you'd like to pick one up for yourself.
