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.

We're now in one of Schulz's peak periods of creativity. Snoopy has become the strip's dominant personality, and this volume marks two milestones for the character: the first of many "dogfights" with the nefarious Red Baron, and the launch of his writing career ("It was a dark and stormy night ...") Two new characters —the first two from outside the strip's regular little neighborhood—make their bows. Roy (who befriends Charlie Brown and then Linus at summer camp) won't have a lasting impact, but upon his return from camp he regales a friend of his with tales of the strange kids he met, and she has to go check them out for herself. Her name? "Peppermint" Patty. With an introduction by filmmaker Hal Hartley, this volume contains 730 black-and-white comic strips.
