Did you guess Superman? Or perhaps Dick Tracy? Or even Tarzan? Even though these comic strip characters have been read for many years, the most popular strip today is Peanuts. The adventures of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and Lucy are read by more people today than any other comic strip characters in history.
The record for the longest-running comic strip is held by “The Katzenjammer Kids.” The adventures of Hans and Fritz first appeared in the New York Journal on December 12, 1897, and is still running in many newspapers and comic books today, over eighty years later!
