    ITEM#: 11991467

    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 1971-1972 and 1973-1974, packed in a sturdy custom box designed especially for this set. The perfect gift item.

    The Complete Peanuts 1971-1972: Sally Brown elbows her way to center stage, at least among the humans,and is thus the logical choice for cover girl... and in her honor, theintroduction is provided by none other than Broadway, television andfilm star Kristin (Wicked) Chenoweth, who first rose to Tony-winning fame with her scene-stealing performance as Sally in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Two long Summer-camp sequences involve Charlie Brown and PeppermintPatty, who has decided that Charlie Brown is madly in love with her,much to his clueless confusion. Snoopy shows up at camp as well, asdoes Peppermint Patty’s new permanent sidekick, the one and only Marcie. The eternally mutable Snoopy mostly shakes off his World War IFlying Ace identity and turns into Joe Cool, college hipsterextraordinaire. And in three long sequences he writes a fan letter tohis favorite author, Miss Helen Sweetstory, then goes on a journey tomeet her, and finally enlists Charlie Brown’s help when her latestopus, “The Six Bunny-Wunnies Freak Out,” falls afoul of censors. Also, Woodstock attends worm school, falls in love with a worm (perhaps the most doomed unrequited Peanutslove story ever!), and is nearly eaten by the neighbors’ cat...Peppermint Patty is put on trial for another dress code violation andmakes a very ill-advised choice in terms of lawyers... Snoopy turnsLinus’s blanket into not one but two sportcoats... Lucy hits a homerun... and the birth of one Rerun Van Pelt!

    The Complete Peanuts 1973-1974: This volume features a number of tennis strips and several extended sequences involving Peppermint Patty’s friend Marcie (including a riotous, rarely seen sequence in which Marcie’s costume-making and hairstyling skills utterly spoil a skating competition for PP), so it seems only right that this volume’s introduction should be served up by Schulz’s longtime friend, tennis champion Billie Jean King. This volume also picks up on a few loose threads from the previous year, as the mysterious “Poochie” shows up in the flesh; Linus and Lucy’s new kid brother “Rerun” makes his first appearance, is almost immediately drafted onto the baseball team (where, thanks to his tiny strike zone, he wins a game), and embarks on his first terrifying journey on the back of his mom’s bike; and, in one of Peanuts’ oddest recurring storylines, the schoolhouse Sally used to talk to starts talking, or at least thinking, back at her! The Complete Peanuts 1973-1974 also includes one of the all-time classic Peanuts sequences, in which Charlie Brown’s baseball-oriented hallucinations finally manifest themselves in a baseball-shaped rash on his head. Forced to conceal the embarrassing discoloration with a bag worn over his head, Charlie Brown goes to camp as “Mister Sack” and discovers that, shorn of his identity, he’s suddenly well liked and successful.
