1971-1972 (Vol. 11)

Peanuts surges into the 1970s with Schulz at the peak of his powers and influence. Sally Brown — school phobia, malapropisms, unrequited love for Linus and all — elbows her way to center stage. Two long Summer-camp sequences involve Charlie Brown and Peppermint Patty, who has decided that Charlie Brown is madly in love with her, much to his clueless confusion. Snoopy shows up at camp as well, as does Peppermint Patty’s new permanent sidekick, the one and only Marcie.

The eternally mutable Snoopy mostly shakes off his World War I Flying Ace identity and turns into Joe Cool, college hipster extraordinaire. And in three long sequences he writes a fan letter to his favorite author, Miss Helen Sweetstory, then goes on a journey to meet her, and finally enlists Charlie Brown’s help when her latest opus, The Six Bunny-Wunnies Freak Out, falls afoul of censors. Plus, an introduction by Kristin Chenowith and much more!


1973-1974 (Vol. 12)

Rerun Van Pelt, born in our last volume, shows up in the flesh and just in time to take his first terrifying journey on the back of his mom’s bike. The schoolhouse building Sally used to talk to becomes self-aware and begins to answer back. Marcie “helps” Peppermint Patty prepare for a skating competition by designing her costume and styling her hair.

This volume also includes the classic “Mister Sack goes to camp” sequence after Charlie Brown’s baseball-oriented hallucinations finally manifest themselves in a baseball-sized rash on his head. Forced to conceal the embarrassing bumps, he decides to wear a paper bag over his head — and discovers, shorn of his identity, he’s suddenly more well-liked and successful.

Snoopy, Woodstock, and the gang enjoy several lively rounds of tennis — which is why the legendary Billie Jean King provides the perfect serve as this volume’s introduction.
