Peanuts (7/17/10)

It’s been years since new Peanuts strips have been available for syndication, but that hasn’t stopped newspapers from running the old ones. For more than a decade, Peanuts has opened up its massive archives for editors who just can’t give up the ghost. This year, newspapers have printed strips from 1963 and, as you might expect, the seasons and even the major holidays have lined up nicely. But this week’s strips are downright spooky in the way they conform to present-day events. Last Saturday, a total solar eclipse was visible across the South Pacific. This rare event was followed by a week of eclipse-themed strips from the early 1960s. Uncanny, right?
