Sarte and Peanuts - Philosophy Now magazine

For those who have paid close enough attention, Peanuts has long been a running commentary on the human condition; a well of pathos that belies it’s inclusion in the funny pages.

Nathan Radke draws comparisons between Schultz and Sartre; although the former was not admittedly influenced by the latter, the situations presented in the Peanuts comics can be used to illustrate some of the basic precepts of existentialism. An interesting read.
