Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder and the rest of the gang have become North American icons. These favourite and familiar characters are now presented in one of the most ambitious publishing projects in the history of the comic strip: the complete reprinting of Charles M. Schulz's classic, Peanuts.
The world's most popular comic strip (over 350 million Peanuts books sold worldwide) will be collected in its entirety in 25 editions, with half the collection being reprinted for the first time. Unlike many older strips that must be reproduced from newsprint, The Complete Peanuts boasts archival-quality proofs for virtually every strip in its history.
Each volume in the series will run over 300 pages in hardcover format, presenting two years' worth of strips in chronological order along with supplementary material such as an extended interview with Schulz himself.
Produced with the cooperation of Schulz's widow, Jean Schulz, the series includes dailies and Sundays, printed in black and white and in a format that will accommodate three dailies or one Sunday strip per page.
The first two volumes are available in this boxed set.
Cartoonist Seth, author of It's a Good Life, If You Don't Weaken and a lifelong Peanuts fan, will be designing the entire series.
