It's impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does... at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz (Seattle Times)
The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated (UMBERTO ECO)
Charles Schulz was, plain and simple, a great artist and philosopher . . . But most importantly, he teaches all ages that if you can learn to laugh at the things that cause you the most pain you will be the strongest of all. Peanuts: a real way of life (JOHN WATERS)
Republishing Peanuts in one gorgeous volume after another is really the first time we can truly take a step back, appreciate Schulz's work as a whole and ultimately wrap our arms around the accomplishment of Charles Schulz. Sometimes, happiness is a warm book (Huffington Post)
These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment (Sunday Times)
All sorts of important writers have marvelled at the glorious simplicity of [Schulz's] draftsmanship and his unerring jokecraft, all underpinned by a quiet melancholy and stoicism . . . by some miracle, the entire Peanuts oeuvre is gradually being republished in this country, by Canongate . . . in lavishly appointed hardback . . . Unlike almost everything you read as a child, they are actually better than you remember them (Spectator)
As essential as pop texts get (The Onion)
The Complete Peanuts confronts us afresh with what a brilliant, truly modern and totally weird idea it was to create a comic strip about a chronically depressed child (Time) --Bill Clinton --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

were never printed in a book before. The Peanuts paperbacks switched publishers, and 1990 comics never saw publication. Now they are here, for the first time in 23 years. Snoopy serving jury duty, Pigpen running for class
President, Charlie Brown falling in love with Peggy Jean. While Schulz's best work was clearly behind him, there is
still much to like here. Enjoy!
Charles Schulz continues to be original even at the beginning of the last full decade of the Peanuts experience. New story lines seem to appear from nowhere. The seemingly never ending source of material is still fresh and the bounty goes forward.
I highly recommend.
Peace to all.
* These are sadly all black and white, even the Sundays that were printed in color. Luckily, there is a second series of books that contains all the full-color Sundays. Just search for 'Peanuts Every Sunday'
* Each volume contains a brief introduction by some famous fan of the strip. They're vaguely interesting but I've never bothered to read any of them all the way through.
* If you're crazy anal as I am note that there are two slightly different versions. If you want them all to match on your shelf then take VERY careful note of the exact publisher and edition.
* Finally, take careful note of the evolution of the series. The very early strips from the 50s are almost like a totally different strip. If buying for a gift, you might consider one of the later books in the series. Completists will want them all but if the receiver is on the fence then the 50s isn't the place to start.
Sustaining a work like this for fifty years and keeping it at such high quality is an amazing achievement. Shifts in focus over the years are inevitable, but my interest level always remains high. I felt that Peppermint Patty and Marcie became more prominent in this time period, particularly Marcie. It was like she became a more rounded character as she moved between Patty and Charlie Brown. It’s also hard to ignore Charlie Brown’s success in getting a girlfriend for a time, even if she does think his name is Brownie Charles.
With this 20th volume of Peanuts comic strips, we are left with only five volumes to go. Having come so far, I can only say again how much I’ve enjoyed this series and how much I look forward to the next volume in the series. I’m already starting to dread when there will be no more books left to arrive in my mailbox.
