Part of Canongate’s highly collectible and highly praised series, with an introduction by Paul Feig
Peanuts goes noir when Charlie Brown gets caught up in a fake celebrity autograph ring and Linus starts his own church of the Great Pumpkin - until believers declare him a false prophet. In comedic counterpoint, Snoopy gets his driving license and Rerun pursues a comics career. Meanwhile, Olaf and Andy go on a quest for the only pop culture anthropomorph more famous than their brother - and ‘Crybaby’ Boobie makes a comeback.

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