Product description

With this volume, The Complete Peanuts ventures into the lesser-known 1980s, and Peanuts fans are sure to find plenty of surprises. In Snoopy-family news, Spike is drafted into the Infantry (don t worry, it s only Snoopy s imaginary World War I army), and a brand new brother, Marbles (with the spotty ears) takes his bow. We also see two major baseball-oriented stories, one in which Charlie Brown joins Peppermint Patty s team, and another in which Charlie Brown and his team lose their baseball field. In other stories, Peppermint Patty witnesses the butterfly miracle, Linus protests that he is not Sally s Sweet Babboo, Sally (in an unrelated sequence) gets fat, the Van Pelts get into farming, and two of the most eccentric characters from later Peanuts years, the hyperaggressive Molly Volley and the whiny Crybaby Boobie, make a return engagement. Charles Schulz s Peanuts world will never grow old, and Fantagraphics complete reprinting of this masterpiece, now in its eighth year still lovingly designed by world-class cartoonist Seth has firmly established itself as one of the very finest archival comic-strip projects ever done."

Review quote

The strips in this volume of Fantagraphics' series are stronger than ever. If there's a different quality to them it's because Peanuts is a mature strip now instead of a precocious, sometimes-astonishing one. --Tom Spurgeon"
