October 21, 1952: Snoopy takes offense


The third panel here is a good depiction of emotion. It's easy to represent happiness, just draw a smile. Anger is a scowl and slanted-downward eyebrows. Snoopy's emotion here is wounded pride, which is rather harder to represent. It helps that the dialogue clearly tips us off as to how Snoopy feels.

  1. Also tricky to depict? Stopping short in mid-stride, which Schulz depicts wonderfully in Panel 1.
