Description of this Book

Volume 25 of The Complete Peanuts collects the very final year 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 to the final strip on February 13th, 2000. In this volume, Rerun takes centre stage and cements himself as the last great Peanuts character - 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.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review It's impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does ... at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz * Seattle Times * Charles Schulz was an American treasure - an artist, philosopher, and keen observer of human life -- BILL CLINTON The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated -- UMBERTO ECO Charles Schulz was, plain and simple, a great artist and philosopher ... But most importantly, he teaches all ages that if you can learn to laugh at the things that cause you the most pain you will be the strongest of all. Peanuts: a real way of life -- JOHN WATERS
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
