Though the long-running hardcover Complete Peanuts series concluded in 2016 with Vol. 26, the paperback editions continue! “My name is 555 95472 but everyone calls me 5 for short... I have two sisters named 3 and 4.” With those words, Charles Schulz introduced three of the quirkiest characters to the Peanuts universe, the numerically monikered 95472 siblings. They didn’t stay around long, but offered some choice bits of satirical nonsense while they did. As it happens, this volume is particularly rich in never-before-reprinted work: more than 150 strips (over one-fifth of the book!) have never seen the light of day since their original appearance until reappearing in The Complete Peanuts. These “lost” strips include Linus making a near-successful run for class president that is ultimately derailed by his religious beliefs (two words: “great” and “pumpkin”), and Snoopy getting involved with a group of politically fanatical birds. Also in this volume: Lucy creates an educational slideshow of Charlie Brown’s faults (it’s so long there’s an intermission!) and Snoopy’s doghouse begins its conceptual expansion (the ceiling is so huge that Linus can paint a vast “history of civilization” mural on it). Introduction by Bill Melendez, animator of A Charlie Brown Christmas.
