A list of all Complete Peanuts Box Sets by Fantagraphics Publishers, along with links to Buy on Amazon.
The Complete Peanuts, 1950 to 1952 and 1953 to 1954 (2 Volumes)
The best-selling, award-winning, critically acclaimed series that sparked a renaissance for fans of classic comic strips upon its debut in 2004 is now coming in hardcover box sets! This first volume, covering the first two-and-a-quarter years of the strip, features hundreds of strips rarely reprinted before this series. Three major cast membersâ€”Schroeder, Lucy, and Linusâ€”initially show up as infants and only â€œgrowâ€ into their final â€œmatureâ€ selves as the months go by. Even Snoopy makes his debut as a puppy! Also: Garrison Keillorâ€™s introduction, a biographical essay by David Michaelis (Schulz and Peanuts) and an in-depth interview with Schulz conducted in 1987. Vol. 2 stars Charlie Brown, Shermy, Patty, Violet, Schroeder, Lucy, baby Linus, Snoopy, and Pigpen. Linus acquires his security blanket and Lucy has forcefully elbowed her way to the center of the action. For readers unfamiliar with the early years of the strip, Snoopyâ€™s appearances here may come as the biggest surprise: he behaves, for the most part, like a dog! Intro by Walter Cronkite.
The Complete Peanuts 1955-1958 Box Set
A boxed set of the third and fourth volumes, just in time for the holidays, designed by the Award-winning graphic novelist, Seth! Ships shrinkwrapped, with Volumes 3: 1955-1956 and 4: 1957-1958 packed in a sturdy custom box designed especially for this set.
The Complete Peanuts 1959-1962 Box Set
Collecting the fifth and sixth volumes of The Complete Peanuts (1959-1960 and 1961-1962) in one handsome collector’s slipcase designed by the cartoonist Seth, this is the perfect gift book item.
In The Complete Peanuts 1959-1960: As the first decade of Peanuts closes, it seems only fitting to bid farewell to that halcyon decade with a cover starring Patty, one of the original three Peanuts. Major new additions to classic Peanuts lore come fast and furious here. Snoopy begins to take up residence atop his doghouse, and his repertoire of impressions increases exponentially. Lucy sets up her booth and offers her first five-cent psychiatric counsel. (Her advice to a forlorn Charlie Brown: “Get over it.”) For the very first time, Linus spends all night in the pumpkin patch on his lonely vigil for the Great Pumpkin (although he laments that he was a victim of “false doctrine,” he’s back 12 months later). Linus also gets into repeated, and visually explosive, scuffles with a blanket-stealing Snoopy, suffers the first depredations of his blanket-hating grandmother, and falls in love with his new teacher Miss Othmar. Even more importantly, several years after the last addition to the cast (“Pig-Pen”), Charlie Brown’s sister Sally makes her appearance ― first as an (off-panel) brand new baby for Charlie to gush over, then as a toddler and eventually a real, talking, thinking cast member. (By the end of this volume, she’ll already start developing her crush on Linus.) All this, and one of the most famous Peanuts strips ever: “Happiness is a warm puppy.” Almost one hundred of the 731 strips collected in this volume (including many Sundays) have never been collected in any book since their original release, with one hundred more having been collected only once in relatively obscure and now impossible-to-find books; in other words, close to one quarter of the strips have never been seen by anyone but the most avid Peanutscompletists. The introduction is by comedienne extraordinaire Whoopi Goldberg, who reveals which Peanuts character she has tattooed on her body (and where) ― as well as telling of her meeting with “Sparky” Schulz, and her fascinating theory on Snoopy’s brother Spike. As always, this volume is gorgeously designed by award-winning cartoonist Seth. The Complete Peanuts continues to receive national and international media attention for its sophisticated treatment of one of the 20th Century’s defining American classics.
In The Complete Peanuts 1961-1962: Launching into the 1960s, Schulz adds another new cast member. Two, in fact: The obnoxious Frieda, of “naturally curly hair” fame, and her inert, seemingly boneless cat Faron. The rapidly maturing Sally, who was after all just born in the previous volume, is ready to start kindergarten and not at all happy about it. Linus’ life is particularly turbulent in this volume, as he is forced to wear glasses, sees the unexpected return of his favorite teacher, Miss Othmar, and coaxes Sally into the cult of the Great Pumpkin (with regrettable results). Snoopy, meanwhile, becomes a compulsive water sprinkler head stander, unhappily befriends a snowman or two, and endures a family crisis involving a little family of birds. Plus baseball blowouts (including a rare team victory), Beethoven birthdays, and plenty of dubious psychiatric help for a nickel. This book collects 730 daily and Sunday comic strips, the vast majority of which are not currently available in any in-print Peanuts collection, and many of which have never been reprinted since their initial appearance in papers over 50 years ago. With a new introduction by legendary jazz pianist/vocalist Diana Krall and gorgeous design by award-winning cartoonist Seth. 1461 black-and-white comic strips
Complete Peanuts 1963-1966
The Complete Peanuts 1963-1966 Binding: Boxed Set Author: CharlesM.Schulz Publisher: FantagraphicsBooks
The Complete Peanuts 1967-1970: Gift Box Set – Hardcover (Vol. 9-10) (The Complete Peanuts)
With intros by John Waters and Mo Willems! The Complete Peanuts 1967-1968 is a particularly Snoopy-heavy collection. In addition to seeing the beagle adopt multiple personas, this volume also sees the appearance of what would be Schulz’s most controversial major character: Franklin. In Charles Schulz’s The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970, Woodstock makes his first appearance, Snoopy is left in the Van Pelt family’s care as the Browns vacation… and the Little Red-Haired Girl moves away.
The Complete Peanuts 1971-1974, Vol. 11-12
Collects the 11th and 12th volumes of The Complete Peanuts in a handsome slipcase, with intros by television, Broadway and film star Kristin (Pushing Daisies, Wicked) Chenoweth and all-star tennis champion Billie Jean King! Schulz is at the peak of his powers and influence in The Complete Peanuts 1971-1972 and The Complete Peanuts 1973-1974. In Vol. 11, Sally Brown – school phobia, malapropisms, unrequited love for Linus and all – elbows her way to center stage, at least among the humans, and is thus the logical choice for cover girl… And Vol. 12 takes a bike ride with Rerun (his first!) and Charlie Brown is finally well-liked and successful … as long as he maintains his alter ego “Mister Sack,” i.e., keeps a bag over his head. For fans of the character, both books are Woodstock-heavy!
The Complete Peanuts 1975-1978 Gift Box Set (Vols. 13 & 14)
Collects the 13th and 14th volumes of The Complete Peanuts in a handsome slipcase, with intros by SNL’s Robert Smigel and 30 Rock‘s Alec Baldwin!
The last of the recurring cast has fallen into place in The Complete Peanuts 1975-1976 and The Complete Peanuts 1977-1978. In Vol. 13, we meet Snoopy’s extended family ― including his brother Spike! Plus, PowderPuff Derbies, Linus’ love triangle, and more. Vol. 14 has hilariously distinctive new one- (or two-) shot characters! For instance, Molly Volley, Milo, the baseball team, the “Goose Eggs,” “Crybaby” Boobie, not to mention the continuing, thrilling adventures, sports competitions (and heartbreaks) of good ol’ Charlie Brown and the gang! Black & white illustrations.
The Complete Peanuts, 1979-1982
Just in time for the holidays, designed by the Award-winning graphic novelist, Seth! This collection of books—identical to the individual volumes—ships shrinkwrapped, with two hardcovers containing complete strips from the years 1979-1980 and 1981-1982, packed in a sturdy custom box designed especially for this set. The perfect gift item.
The Complete Peanuts 1979-1980: It’s 1980, Charlie Brown… and Peppermint Patty is wearing corn-rows! Plus, a strange romance…Charles Schulz enters his fourth decade as the greatest cartoonist of his generation, and Peanuts remains as fresh and lively as it ever was. (How do we know it’s 1980? Well, for one thing Peppermint Patty gets herself those Bo-Derek-in-10 cornrows — Peanuts’ timelessness occasionally shows a crack!) That said, The Complete Peanuts 1979-1980
includes a number of classic storylines, including the month-long sequence in which an ill Charlie Brown is hospitalized (including a particularly spooky moment when he wonders if he’s died and nobody’s told him yet), and an especially eventful trek with Snoopy, Woodstock,
and the scout troop (now including a little girl bird, Harriet). And Snoopy is still trying on identities left and right, including the
“world-famous surveyor,” the “world-famous census taker,” and Blackjack Snoopy, the riverboat gambler. In other extended stories,
Snoopy launches an ill-fated airline (with Lucy as the agent, Linus as the luggage handler, and Marcie as what it was still OK then to call the stewardess)… Peppermint Patty responds to being leaked upon by a ceiling by hiring a lawyer (unfortunately, she again picks Snoopy)… plus one of the great, forgotten romances of Peanuts that will startle even long-time Peanutsconnoisseurs: Peppermint Patty and…“Pig-Pen”?!
The Complete Peanuts 1981-1982: With this volume, The Complete Peanuts ventures into the lesser-known 1980s, and Peanuts fans are sure to find plenty of surprises.
In Snoopy-family news, Spike is drafted into the Infantry (don’t worry, it’s only Snoopy’s imaginary World War I army), and a brand new brother, “Marbles” (with the spotty ears) takes his bow. We also see two major baseball-oriented stories, one in which Charlie Brown joins Peppermint Patty’s team, and another in which Charlie Brown and his team lose their baseball field.
In other stories, Peppermint Patty witnesses the “butterfly miracle,” Linus protests that he is not Sally’s “Sweet Babboo,” Sally (in an unrelated sequence) gets fat, the Van Pelts get into farming, and two of the most eccentric characters from later Peanuts years, the hyperaggressive Molly Volley and the whiny “Crybaby” Boobie, make a return engagement.
Charles Schulz’s Peanuts world will never grow old, and Fantagraphics’ complete reprinting of this masterpiece, now in its eighth year — still lovingly designed by world-class cartoonist Seth — has firmly established itself as one of the very finest archival comic-strip projects ever done.
