As the first decade of Peanuts closes, it seems only fitting to bid farewell to that halcyon decade with a cover starring Patty, one of the original three Peanuts. Major new additions to classic Peanuts lore come fast and furious here. Snoopy begins to take up residence atop his doghouse, and his repertoire of impressions increases exponentially. Lucy sets up her booth and offers her first five-cent psychiatric counsel. (Her advice to a forlorn Charlie Brown: "Get over it.") For the very first time, Linus spends all night in the pumpkin patch on his lonely vigil for the Great Pumpkin (although he laments that he was a victim of "false doctrine," he's back 12 months later). Linus also gets into repeated, and visually explosive, scuffles with a blanket-stealing Snoopy, suffers the first depredations of his blanket-hating grandmother, and falls in love with his new teacher Miss Othmar. Even more importantly, several years after the last addition to the cast ("Pig-Pen"), Charlie Brown's sister Sally makes her appearance — first as an (off-panel) brand new baby for Charlie to gush over, then as a toddler and eventually a real, talking, thinking cast member. (By the end of this volume, she'll already start developing her crush on Linus.) All this, and one of the most famous Peanuts strips ever: "Happiness is a warm puppy." Almost one hundred of the 731 strips collected in this volume (including many Sundays) have never been collected in any book since their original release, with one hundred more having been collected only once in relatively obscure and now impossible-to-find books; in other words, close to one quarter of the strips have never been seen by anyone but the most avid Peanuts completists.

The introduction is by comedienne extraordinaire Whoopi Goldberg, who reveals which Peanuts character she has tattooed on her body (and where) — as well as telling of her meeting with "Sparky" Schulz, and her fascinating theory on Snoopy's brother Spike. As always, this volume is gorgeously designed by award-winning cartoonist Seth. The Complete Peanuts continues to receive national and international media attention for its sophisticated treatment of one of the 20th Century's defining American classics.

2007 Eisner Award WINNER: Best Archival Collection/Project - Strips

2007 Harvey Award WINNER: Best Domestic Reprint Project

"The Complete Peanuts has framed Charles Schulz’s enduring masterpiece about as well any lifelong fan could’ve hoped." – "The Best Comics of the '00s: The Archives", The A.V. Club

"Undeniably crackling... the illustrations are a marvel of simplicity and the insights are haunting." – Publishers Weekly

"One can scarcely overstate the importance of Peanuts to the comics, or overstate its influence on all of us who have followed." – Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes)

"The Complete Peanuts isn't just the sum total of one man's life and work. [It is] ultimately a gift from the heart to each and every one of us from Chalres Schulz, his heirs, and the good folks at Fantagraphics. It's a national treasure." – Bookslut

"Now that Schulz's classic is finally getting its bibliographic just desserts, consider replacing those tattered old Peanuts paperbacks with this definitive series." – Booklist

"This reissue project is a triumph for the cornucopian wonders of the wealthy west over the forces of cultural dissolution." – The American Spectator
