I don't care for the title of this article, "The Schulz System: Why Peanuts Works", the second half of "Nemo: the Classic Comics Library" issue 31. It sounds like the work of an artist can be broken down into spreadsheets and pie-charts and analyzed by some part of your right-brain and then recreated and duplicated in a lab by an intern.
But the article is good.
The things Charles Schulz brought to the drawing board were inherent, and examining each facet can add to our appreciation of his work and the art form of the comic strip itself. And this article does add to our appreciation, for sure.
