it's wild to me that we never talk about the Peanuts strip where Charlie Brown hallucinates Mad Magazine's Alfred E Neuman as the sun

this was the punchline to a weeks (months?) long storyline where Charlie Brown suffered a mental breakdown from losing at baseball and saw the sun as a giant baseball mocking him

Show thread

iirc this is also the same extended storyline where he goes away to summer camp and accidentally becomes popular by wearing a paper bag on his head to hide his shame

Show thread

I forgot that he was wearing the paper bag specifically to hide the baseball-seam-shaped rash he was developing. I think this story was my first exposure to cosmic horror

Show thread

anyway, read Peanuts, underground indie comic of the year
