Charles Schulz's Peanuts debuted in 1950 and would become what is arguably the most important comic strip of all time. Peanuts transcended the medium, presenting complex issues and moral dilemmas in the space of four panels, while maintaining a bitingly funny sense of humor. For the first time, you can see the original art created by the artist himself--in IDW's multi-award-winning Artist's Edition format, with each strip being carefully scanned and reproduced (in an unusual oblong format), two strips to a page.
Charlie Brown, Lucy Van Pelt, Linus, Schroeder, kite-eating tree, the Great Pumpkin, and, of course, Snoopy... are all are embedded in our psyches. Here we have a very careful selection of best and favorite strips from the decades, beginning in 1950. Each has been reproduced from the original art in the Shulz family's possession.
Note: Because of the enormous size Charles Schulz worked, these originals are reduced somewhat in size from the original art. They are still nearly 4 times as large as any daily strip you've ever seen! The cover is so well designed that it truly looks three-dimensional; I had to run my fingers over it to be sure it wasn't. Amazing!
