None of that is really the point. Peanuts — a title Schulz loathed, but one the syndicate forced upon him — changed the way comics strips were received and perceived, and showed that cartoon comedy could have edges and nuance as well as pratfalls and punch lines.
Following a moving reminiscence from legendary newsman Walter Cronkite, this second gargantuan x 33x mm landscape hardback compendium also available in digital formats offers in potent monochrome the third and fourth years in the life of Charlie Brown and Co: an ever-evolving procession of insight and hilarity in still-fresh episodes seldom seen or reprinted once the strip had achieved its global domination.
