Book Preview: The Complete Peanuts

The Complete Peanuts 1971-1972
Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Woodstock, Lucy (my favourite characters), Linus, Peppermint Patty... Who can forget these characters?

Fantagraphics has been reprinting the good ol' Peanuts comic strips into collections into hardcover books, starting from the 1950s.

Each book contains 2 years of Peanuts. For the collectors, there are box sets as well, each containing two books.

Fantagraphics plan reprint all the comic strips eventually. That's quite a few more to go.

You can see that it's well printed, well bind and comes with a dust jacket.

This is how the box set looks like. It's actually a sturdy cardboard slipcase printed on all sides.

These are the different covers for the books. I don't see Woodstock, yet.

They are available from Fantagraphics. On Amazon, they are all available in US and Canada, but not all books in UK.

If you're getting from Amazon, I've created a quick list there pointing to each book. Here are the links: Amazon.com | Amazon.ca | Amazon.co.uk
