Since their original publication, Peanuts Sundays have almost always been collected and reprinted in black and white. In full striking color they become a surprisingly different reading experience. These late-1950s strips comprise the first golden age of Peanuts Sundays, FIVE YEARS in one gorgeous, full-color coffee table book.
Linus, Charlie Brown, Pig-Pen, Shermy, Violet, Sally, Patty, and Schroeder are all present, but the rising star is undoubtedly Snoopy. The art has been scrupulously re-colored to match the original syndicate coloring -- allowing readers once again to plunge back into Charles Schulz's marvelous world.
"The daily black-and-white comics were great but the full-color Sunday strips gave Schulz a big, beautiful canvas to let his expert pacing and amazing linework breathe in a rainbow of color...it's really the entire mix of characters ...and their mix of adult prickliness and childlike naiveté that made Charles Schulz's iconic comics strips so timeless."--Evan Narcisse, Kotaku
"Resistance is Futile (Especially with Footballs)" is the title of Chuck Klosterman's entertaining look at Peanuts and this volume in particular. Handsome oblong edition, a massive collection which will offer anyone in the family hours of reading fun.
