Morrissey and Peanuts, Together at Last

NeverDidLikeYourFace

Few figures have suffered as much perpetual disappointment and cruel tragedy as Morrissey and Charlie Brown, so why not pair them together?

That’s the idea behind the great new Tumblr This Charming Charlie, which began posting strips last week. Created by Oakland graphic designer Lauren LoPrete, the blog has a knack for seamlessly pairing the most “sick and cruelPeanuts moments with the most “Good grief”-esque Morrissey lyrics. We asked LoPrete’s permission to share some of her best strips below.
