Flat Earth has a good idea for all those Peanuts collections that will, over the next few years, become redundant, what with Fantagraphics’ Complete Peanuts project — donate ’em. FE says hospitals, but also schools, libraries, churches…whoever could use them.

Now that new Peanuts strips are a thing of the past, the number of kids who only know it as a product line and not artistic expression will only increase. Today’s kids could use a little exposure to the original Peanuts strips…which, along with the collected works of William Shakespeare, tell you pretty much all you need to know about human nature.

Okay, I’ll probably hang onto my set of Mattel Peanuts hardcovers…but the rest are going to charities, I think.

Flat Earth — thanks for the darn good idea.
