Charles Schulz

Genres:
Comics & Animation
Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000) launched his landmark newspaper strip Peanuts in October 1950 and, over the next 50 years, it ran in more than 2,600 newspapers in 75 countries. Schulz died in his sleep Feb. 12, 2000 -- just hours before the last original Peanuts strip was published. All told, Schulz completed 17,897 daily and Sunday strips, each one written, drawn, and lettered by his own hand—an unmatched achievement in comics.

Launching into the 1960s, Schulz adds another new cast member. Two, in fact: The obnoxious Frieda, of "naturally curly hair" fame, and her inert, seemingly boneless cat Faron. The rapidly maturing Sally, who was after all just born in the previous volume, is ready to start kindergarten and not at all happy about it. Linus' life is particularly turbulent in this volume, as he is forced to wear glasses, sees the unexpected return of his favorite teacher, Miss Othmar, and coaxes Sally into the cult of the Great Pumpkin (with regrettable results). Snoopy, meanwhile, becomes a compulsive water sprinkler head stander, unhappily befriends a snowman or two, and endures a family crisis involving a little family of birds. Plus baseball blowouts (including a rare team victory), Beethoven birthdays, and plenty of dubious psychiatric help for a nickel. This book collects 730 daily and Sunday comic strips, the vast majority of which are not currently available in any in-print Peanuts collection, and many of which have never been reprinted since their initial appearance in papers over 50 years ago. With a new introduction by legendary jazz pianist/vocalist Diana Krall and gorgeous design by award-winning cartoonist Seth.
