Her criticism might be worth listening to if she had any creativity of her own.
But it is a picture of you Lucy….
Poor Linus, I always felt sorrier for him than Charlie Brown. Charlie B. could get away from her more easily.
“Critics are entitled to their opinion, but I don’t know what entitles them to be critics.” – Willie Nelson.
Critics are often self-constituted, or fall into the job on a newspaper or magazine because no one else is available. Critics don’t write books, make movies or create art. They just kibitz after the fact.
Those who can, do. Those who can’t, criticize.
It’s just that boring squeaking you hear all the time Linus, ignore it.
no. they just don’t listen to you, Lucy
Be quiet Lucy. Let Linus draw till his heart is content.
It’s hard to take Lucy seriously.
No when the critic is absurd.
That’s not art!
I’m afraid she might start charging 5¢ for her “critiques”.
How does one become a professional critic?
How does one become a professional critic? It’s easy as clicking a mouse. Simply go over to the comments section of LUANN and criticize the bejeezus out of Greg Evans. Many do. Yet they never leave … interesting.
It’s possible to be both a great critic and a great artist. Ben Jonson, Samuel Johnson, and George Bernard Shaw leap to the mind……….
I think I might be insulted if your opinion mattered any to me.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
It’s all that time spend 12 inches from the TV screen — ruined eyesight makes for a lousy art critic.
Be careful how you express your criticism….When our lawn mower broke and wouldn’t run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the shed, the boat, making beer.. Always something more important to me. Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point..When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush. I said, “When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway..”.The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.
Good on Linus for shutting her out!
Oh you sad person. I express ‘anger’ towards Lucy because she is one of the most hated characters in the strip because of her bullying and controlling ways towards Linus. I’m aware that this is only a comic strip and I happen to enjoy it very much and maybe I enjoy showing my hatred towards Lucy as I’m sure many of us do. It’s not offending anyone, is it?
I believe it’s YOU who has a lot to learn. You are pretty judgemental to someone who you’ve never even met.
Go and get stuffed. Nobody will miss you.
I guess people get tired of Lucy’s negativity after a while. Haha
I wish I didn’t listen to critics. When I was young there was nothing but and being the tender hearted person I am I just stopped trying until I grew up and found out I really did have talent Children do what they learn from example
Linus sticks out his tongue in the 3rd panel, lol.
Critics are people too, and most art is made for people, so Argo critics matter.
“If I want your opinion..I’ll beat it outta you.” -Chuck Norris
Is Linus asleep? LOL
@gnatXXsumYour comment to Number Three yesterday was uncalled for and inappropriate. Many commenters on this website express their displeasure with certain characters or topics. Personal attacks on real people are hurtful, disrespectful, and unnecessary. Number Three’s comments toward Lucy have always been offered tongue-in-cheek and often in the spirit of those who interact with her within the comic strip itself. Lighten up. If you can put up with “diversity” within a comic strip, you should be able to put up with “diversity” from real-life commenters.
