For help on how to follow a comic title,
She was, actually. But she was born almost exactly 100 years before this strip was published, so anything with her in it would be pretty old (several of the films she did were silent films).
But he said, “… a million miles away from everyone!” So perhaps he is planning a settlement on Mars (over 33 million miles away at its closest, but it’s the closest land he’ll find past the million mile mark).
Yes, this is the last appearance of a zamboni.
This strip is a rerun of a strip that was originally published years earlier. He stopped doing daily strips on January 3, 2000. He still had Sunday strips coming out, but those would be made weeks before being published, which is why his last new strip came out the day after his death.
True, this one is a rerun, but the very last Sunday strip (Feb 13, 2000) still uses a typewriter. Snoopy never did upgrade to a computer.
This is a rerun. Schroeder’s piano’s true last appearance was September 4, 1999: https://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1999/09/04

No, Schulz said he originally intended for the bird to be a girl (which is why he gave it the position of Snoopy’s secretary), but, right after being introduced, Woodstock was referred to as “he” and “guy”.
A mercenary is defined as a “professional soldier” hired to fight for an army they are not a part of (this definition is consistent across Oxford Languages, Merriam-Webster, Dictionary.com, and Cambridge English Dictionary). Because David was not a professional soldier (by your own statement, he was a shepherd), he was more akin to a conscript than a mercenary. Also, even if we accept your definition, it was not “personal profit” that motivated him (pride =/= profit).
He wasn’t a soldier by profession, but he became one temporarily at that moment. He was essentially a soldier as soon as the king (Saul) accepted him to fight for them (in times of battle, most historical armies weren’t very strict with who was or wasn’t an actual soldier). Saul even tried to outfit him with soldier’s gear, but he declined since he wasn’t used to it and wouldn’t be able to utilize it effectively.
