The 25th volume of The Complete Peanuts collects the very final year-plus of the defining comic strip of the 20th century, which ran for nearly 18,000 strips and for 50 years after its debut in 1950. This masterpiece includes all of 1999 through the final Feb. 13, 2000 strip. In this volume, Rerun takes center stage and cements himself as the last great Peanutscharacter―when he embarks on a career as an underground comic book artist! This volume also features a huge surprise: the complete Li’l Folks, the weekly one-panel comic that Charles Schulz produced for his hometown paper. Li’l Folks was a clear precursor to Peanuts, and its inclusion here will bring The Complete Peanuts full circle.
