The series was one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century. The success of the series led to serialised strips published in Belgium's leading newspaper Le Soir The Evening and spun into a successful Tintin magazine. The series is set during a largely realistic  20th century. Its hero is Tintin , a courageous young Belgian reporter and adventurer.
I t really was a dark and stormy night. On February 12, , Charles Schulz—who had single-handedly drawn some 18, Peanuts comic strips, who refused to use assistants to ink or letter his comics, who vowed that after he quit, no new Peanuts strips would be made—died, taking to the grave, it seemed, any further adventures of the gang. It had been going for five decades. Schulz hated and resented the name Peanuts , which was foisted on him by United Feature Syndicate. Why was this comic strip so wildly popular for half a century? Peanuts was deceptive. The characters, though funny, could stir up shockingly heated arguments over how to survive and still be a decent human being in a bitter world.
