Paperback Charlie Brown Pokes Fun at Beloved Peanuts Characters

If there's one thing that Paperback Charlie Brown can teach anyone, it's that no one ever cuts the characters any slack especially the horrid Lucy van Pelt.

Tony Medeiros is the creator behind Paperback Charlie Brown, a hilarious parody of the comic's paperback covers. While Peanuts has always contained humor, the portrayals here are a lot more direct through simple visuals and taglines. The majority of the cover makeovers basically portray Charlie Brown taking on a ton of verbal abuse from his peers. Clearly, the poor guy's insecurities aren't going to be resolved any time soon if he keeps hanging with the same crowd. Medeiros has also incorporated other famous children's characters such as Clifford The Big Red Dog and Calvin & Hobbes to add more humor to the pieces.
