Part of Canongate’s highly collectible and highly praised series, with an introduction by Lynn Johnston
The Complete Peanuts marches into the 1980s as Snoopy’s brother Spike is drafted into the Infantry and a second brother, ‘Marbles’, takes his bow. Also in this volume, Peppermint Patty witnesses the ‘butterfly miracle’, Sally gets fat, Charlie Brown’s team loses its baseball field, Linus is still not Sally’s ‘Sweet Babboo’, more Beagle Scout adventures with Snoopy, and Molly Volley and ‘Crybaby’ Boobie return for a rematch.

“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”
“The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated”
“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”
“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”
