Since their original publication, Peanuts Sundays have almost always been collected and reprinted in black and white, and generations of Peanuts fans have grown up enjoying this iteration of these strips. But many who read Peanuts in their original Sunday papers remain fond of the striking coloring, which makes for a surprisingly different reading experience.
Fantagraphics is proud to present a series of larger, Sundays-only Peanuts reprints, which bring a splash of real color to Schulz's cast of colorful characters for a delightful Sunday-morning reading experience. Designed as a series of ten massive coffee-table quality books, each one containing a half-decades worth of Sunday strips, Peanuts Every Sunday will be a proud addition to any Peanuts fan's bookshelf.
This first volume, Peanuts Every Sunday: 1952-1955, offers a fascinating peek at Schulz's evolving creative process. The graphic style of the strip changes drastically, from the strip's initial stiff, ultra-simple stylizations through a period of uncommonly lush, detailed drawings to something close to the final, elegant Peanuts style weve all come to know and love. We are also introduced to the initial versions of the the strip's main characters, whose personalities will be refined over the years to come. In this volume, we meet the baby versions of Schroeder, Lucy, and Linus.
Following in the footsteps of Fantagraphics' acclaimed presentation of the Carl Barks material in Walt Disney's Donald Duck, Peanuts Every Sunday: 1952-1955 has been scrupulously re-colored to match the original syndicate coloring — allowing readers once again to plunge into Charles Schulz's marvelous world.
