COMICS: This Charming Charlie
First there was Garfield Minus Garfield, then there 3eanuts, and now we have the latest mash-up the work of syndicated cartoonists project—This Charming Charlie. It’s the brainchild of graphic designer Lauren LoPrete who has taken panels from classic Peanuts strips and replaced Charles Schulz’s text with lyrics from songs by The Smiths and Morrissey.
You don’t have to know early-goth music to enjoy this, the angsty sentiments juxtaposed with Charlie Brown and friends is funny all on its own. But it’s even FUNNIER if you can place a song with the text you’re reading.
