Beyond the awesomeness of this being X-Men Peanuts, there are a few little details that I particularly like. I’m not sure if it was intentional or not, but having Charlie Brown as the obvious Professor X and the Little Red Haired Girl that he so long pined for across the playground as Marvel Girl could be a reference to this tragic, best-forgotten Silver Age snippet.

Yesterday, this edition of the famous comic strip Garfield appeared in papers:
Today, Jim Davis is apologizing for it. And not simply because it’s mildly amusing, which goes against Garfield’s strict bland standard of the past decade.
Yesterday just happened to be Veterans Day in the United States. You know, remembering those veterans killed in combat operations serving for their country. You know, kind of like the spider in the strip. Good timing, there.
Davis claims that he wrote the strip a year ago and had no idea the strip would run on Veterans Day. Even if that is true, someone dropped the ball big time here. Because unlike those here at Comicdom Wrecks (who find the unfortunate timing good for a chuckle), there are many who take great offense to trivial matters like this.
