Sunday, March 22, 1953: The Earth Invaders


One could take this as another Lucy-abusing-her-brother strip, except for the looks on the faces of Shermy, Patty and Charlie Brown, which make this strip more about human nature than Lucy's specific nature.

This is fairly notable for being a complex play scene with many characters, in perspective, with action poses, and with realistic living room scenery thrown in.

  1. Look at Linus' traumatic reaction in the last panel. It's no wonder he grows to need a security blanket, with an abusive fussbudget of a sister like that.
