Now in stock: The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970, 1967-1970 Box Set / Slipcase

The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970 by Charles M. Schulz

The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970
By Charles M. Schulz

"WOODSTOCK" PROPELS PEANUTS INTO THE '70s!

He turns up first as Snoopy’s secretary, then gradually becomes a good friend whom Snoopy helps to fly South... but it’s not until June 22, 1970 that the little bird gains a name, in a perfect salute to the decade that ends with this volume: Woodstock!

In other timely stories, Peppermint Patty runs afoul of her school’s dress code (those sandals!), Lucy declares herself a “New Feminist,” and Snoopy’s return to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm on a speaking engagement climaxes in a riot and a new love found amidst the teargas (“She had the softest paws...”).

Speaking of Snoopy, this volume falls under the sign of the Great Beagle, as three separate storylines focus on the mysterious sovereign of Beagledom. First Snoopy is summoned by a wrathful G.B. when Frieda submits a complaint about his (Snoopy’s) desultory rabbit-chasing efforts; then, back in the Great one’s good graces, Snoopy is sent on a secret mission; and finally he himself ascends (briefly!) to the mantle of Great Beagledom.

In other news, an exasperated Lucy throws Schroeder’s piano into the maw of the kite-eating tree, with gruesome results... Miss Othmar goes on strike and Linus gets involved... Charlie Brown’s baseball team has an actual (brief) winning streak... Snoopy’s quest to compete in the Oakland ice skating competition is thwarted by his inability to find a partner... Charlie Brown goes to a banquet to meet his hapless baseball hero Joe Shlabotnik... Snoopy is left in the Van Pelt family’s care as Charlie and Sally Brown head out of town for a vacation... and (alas) the Little Red-Haired Girl moves away...

This volume also features a new introduction by renowned illustrator Mo Willems and, as always, gorgeous design by award-winning cartoonist Seth.

Gary Leib's Wall St.
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under misc 15 Sep 2008 8:51 AM

  

Go watch: The second episode of Concrete Jumble, a series of animations about the history of New York City, by Gary Leib. This one's about the history of Wall St. -- well timed, Leib! After the last 24 hours, this might end up being a requiem for Wall St., too.

Gahan Wilson cartoon

In anticipation of Halloween, Playboy presents a gallery of classic cartoons by Gahan Wilson, along with a handful of interview features.

They also spill the beans on Fantagraphics' upcoming collection of every cartoon Wilson ever published in Playboy, a 3-volume hardcover slipcased set due next October, in time for Halloween 2009! Yow! (Having been a fan of Wilson's work since I was a little kid reading Matthew Looney books, I personally can't wait for this set!)
