"But in this day when we could use a laugh more than ever, the reality facing the comics section is anything but funny."

A little about the creator
• Charles Shulz was born on November 26, 1922
• His hometown in St. Paul, Minnesota
• His kindergarten teacher told him “Someday, Charles, you’re going to be an artist.”
• During the Great Depression, his parents were able to enroll him in cartooning classes at what is now the Art Instruction Schools
• Charles struggled with the class and was only able to earn a C+
• He eventually accepted a job working for the Art Instruction School

The evolution of Peanuts
• Charlie Brown’s character was derived from one of Shulz’ coworkers
• The Peanuts strip, started as a weekly comic strip entitled “Lil Folks.”
• The comic strip was renamed because of legal issues. Shulz was not pleased with the new name.
• When asked if he thought the strip would last, Shulz answered “Sure, I thought it would last. I never intended to draw something I thought wouldn’t last. In fact, when I started out, I thought, ‘I’ll be drawing this the rest of my life’”
• Shulz was certainly correct. In 1952, John Selby of Rinehart and Company published a PEANUTS book.
• There are now PEANUTS movies for every holiday, as well as countless objects such as calendars, t-shirts, bedding, coffee mugs. The list goes on and on.
• There is also a PEANUTS section at Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom in Allentown, PA.

http://answers.encyclopedia.com/question/did-comic-strips-fi The history
•The Boondocks is a daily syndicated comic strip written and originally drawn by Aaron McGruder that ran from 1996 to 2006
•Created by McGruder in 1996 for The Diamondback, the student newspaper at the University of Maryland, College Park, the strip moved from the college pages and was printed in the monthly hip hop magazine The Source in 1997.
•A popular and controversial strip, The Boondocks deals with African American culture and American politics as seen through the eyes of its protagonist, 10-year-old black radical Huey Freeman
The Characters
• Huey Freeman is the main character. He is a 10 year old revolutionist with a student political awareness. He is easily disturbed by the ignorance in modern day American society and media. The content of Huey’s mind has caused controversy in readers and even at a point in time almost cost the comic strip its place in newspapers after the use of the N word and an entire spread on it.
• Riley Freeman is Huey’s little brother who is the complete opposite of his brother and glorifies the “thug life”. Riley is the character that used the N word and not to glorify it but was the first major comic strip character to use the N word.
The Controversies that made it famous and its political and social impact
• The content of McGruder’s comic strip often came under fire for being politically left-wing and occasionally risky, leading to its being published in the op-ed section of many newspapers. For example, a strip making fun of BET's rap videos, some of which rely on the sexually suggestive gyrations of female dancers, and a strip mocking Whitney Houston's drug problems and emphasizing her buttocks, were pulled out of circulation.
• The Boondocks garnered significant attention after the September 11, 2001 attacks with a series of strips in which Huey calls a government tipline to report Ronald Reagan for funding terrorism. Soon after, he "censored" several strips by featuring a talking patriotic yellow ribbon and a flag (named Ribbon and Flagee, respectively) instead of the usual cast.
• Several strips have been briefly pulled from prominent publications. For example, the "Condi Needs a Man" strip, in which Huey and his friend Caesar create a personal ad for U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, portraying her as a "female Darth Vader type that seeks loving mate to torture", resulted in The Washington Post withholding a week's worth of strips, the longest such suspension ever by the paper.

• The Post also declined to run "Can a Nigga Get a Job?", which had black contestants compete on a reality TV show to work for Russell Simmons, only to find that all the contestants were rude and lazy. This unflattering portrayal drew the ire of many in the African American community.
