Product description

That s right! With this volume, The Complete Peanuts reaches the halfway point of Charles M. Schulz s astounding half-century run on the greatest comic strip of all time. These years are especially fecund in terms of new canine characters, as Snoopy is joined by his wandering brother Spike (from Needles), his beloved sister Belle (from Kansas City), and... did you know he had a nephew? In other beagle news, Snoopy breaks his foot and spends six weeks in a cast, deals with his friend Woodstock s case of the the vapors, and gets involved in a heated love triangle with Linus over the girl Truffles. The Complete Peanuts 1975-1976 features several other long stories, including a rare double track sequence with two parallel narratives: Peppermint Patty and Snoopy travel to participate in the Powderpuff Derby, while Charlie Brown finally gets to meet his idol Joe Shlabotnik. And Peppermint Patty switches to a private school, but commits the mistake of allowing Snoopy to pick it for her; only after graduation does she realize something s not quite right! Plus: A burglary at Peppermint Patty s house is exacerbated by waterbed problems... Marcie acquires an unwanted suitor... Charlie Brown and Peppermint Patty become desk partners... The talking school building collapses... Lots of tennis jokes... and gags starring Schroeder, Lucy, Franklin, Rerun, Sally, and that vicious cat next door. It s another two years of Peanuts at its finest! Featuring an introduction by comedian Robert Smigel (Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Saturday Night Live)."

Review quote

Reading [Schulz's] wonderful comics is enjoyable and comfortable, sort of like wearing a worn, favorite sweater. The Complete Peanuts 1975-1976 is a humorous, welcome reprieve from a stressful, often screwed up, world. Thanks Mr. Schulz! --Glenn Perrett"
