Peanuts reaches the middle of the go-go 1980s in this book, which covers
1985 and 1986: a time of hanging out at the mall, “punkers” (you haven’t
lived until you’ve seen Snoopy with a Mohawk), killer bees, airbags, and Halley’s

Also in this volume: Peppermint Patty wins the “All-City School Essay Contest”
with her “What I Did During Christmas Vacation” essay but snatches
defeat from the jaws of victory with a disastrous acceptance speech… Charlie
Brown, Linus, Sally and Snoopy go to “rain camp” one year, and “survival
camp” the next… The World War One Flying Ace gets the flu and is nursed
back to health by a French Mademoiselle (Marcie)… Sally gives Santa Claus
a heart attack (literally!)… Lucy talks Charlie Brown into posing in swimtrunks
for their school’s “Swimsuit issue”… Peppermint Patty gains a crabby
tutor… Linus suffers a crisis when addressed for the first time as “Mister”…
plus another return appearance by Molly Volley, Snoopy’s accidental destruction
of his dog house (with a cannon!), and lots of near-Beckettian strips set
in the desert starring this volume’s cover boy, the one and only Spike!
This volume's introduction is by comedian and actor Patton Oswalt (Big Fan, Young Adult, Ratatouille).
It’s another two years of hilarious, heart-warming strips from the great
Charles M. Schulz.
Praise for Peanuts and The Complete Peanuts Series:
"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
“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.” – The Seattle Times
"Charles Schulz was an American treasure — an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life." – Bill Clinton
"Republishing Peanuts in one gorgeous volume after another is really the first time we can truly take a step back, appreciate Schulz's work as a whole and ultimately wrap our arms around the accomplishment of Charles Schulz. Sometimes, happiness is a warm book." – The Huffington Post
