As the 1950's close down, Peanuts enters its golden age. Linus, who had just learned to speak in the previous volume, becomes downright eloquent. Charlie Brown cascades further down the hill to loserdom. But the rising star is undoubtedly Snoopy. He's at the centre of the most action-packed episodes. Jonathan Franzen, author of The Corrections and life-long Peanuts fan, introduces the collection.

Review quote

One of the finest cultural artifacts made in the 20th century. -- Russell T. Davies powerful a comic art-piece as anything out today...will delight Peanuts aficionados. * Observer * Beautifully designed ... One of the high-water marks of post-war popular culture. * Daily Telegraph * All sorts of important writers have marveled 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 * ...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. * The List * Canongate has had the brilliant wheeze of reprinting Charles Schultz's strip cartoon from the beginning in hardback volumes... * Herald * The Complete Peanuts is beautifully bound, a comprehensive resource and, with an index and introduction, a useful contextualisation of a modern legend. * The Skinny * these first volumes (1950-54), we can already see what will appeal to 21st century readers. * Sunday Times *
