Gritty, Post-Apocalyptic Charlie Brown

Linus warned us. Long before we listened--before we ran out of time--he warned us. Lucy had the football. She would use it, eventually. And when Schroeder walked away, out of her life, she felt that she no longer had anything to live for. And neither did we, apparently.

Well, they're not the first (or in my opinion the Best) to work that trope. About a dozen years ago, 'underground' comic artist Jason Yungbluth (who has since gone 'aboveground' enough to be featured in MAD Magazine) published the first adventure of "Weapon Brown", a post-apocalyptic Charlie B. all growed up, very bulked-up, and with a bionic arm, as well as the rest of the Peanuts cast, including Dr. Lucy, the Red Haired Girl and Linus and his Great Pumpkin (the stuff of Halloween nightmares). Very NSFKids for violence, sex and language. Then he expanded the universe into re-defined versions of much of the comics page, from Popeye, Orphan Annie and a Beetle Bailey who's a real Military Beetle, to his ultimate adversary, a bio-engineered supersoldier code-named "CAL-v.1N" (But then, if any two comic strip characters are going to be archenemies, it would have to be Calvin and Chuck). Insane, profane and way too much fun. So excuse me if I do not give too much respect to some other halfway-decent depiction of Post-Apocalyptic Charlie Brown.
