Comic Book Easter Eggs – Charlie Brown Cameos!

Every week, I will be sharing with you three comic book “easter eggs.” An easter egg is a joke/visual gag/in-joke that a comic book creator (typically the artist) has hidden in the pages of the comic for readers to find (just like an easter egg). They range from the not-so-obscure to the really obscure. So come check ’em all out and enjoy! Also, click here for an archive of all the easter eggs featured so far! If you want to suggest an easter egg for a future column, e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com (do not post your suggestion in the comments section!).

This week, we feature a quartet of Charlie Brown cameos…

Reader MLJames suggested Charlie’s big-headed cameo on the cover to Fantastic Four #262 by John Byrne…


Reader Brian S. pointed out that it seems like Charlie Brown is one of many mall visitors in danger of a (unwilling) suicide bomber in Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker’s Invincible #2…


Finally, in one of the more bizarre cameos, check out Betty and Veronica #144 from 1967 (I presume it is Dan DeCarlo art) where Charlie Brown and Snoopy are just randomly on a drawing on Betty’s bedroom wall…


Thanks to Confessions of a Pop Culture Addict on Tumblr for the scan!

Commenter Rob wished to point out the adult Charlie Brown who worked as a bodyguard in Transmetropolitan (here he is in #13. Note that this is a Vertigo comic book, so there’s profanity! Be forewarned!)…
