The Complete Peanuts 1975-1976: Good grief, Charlie Brown, we're halfway there!That’s right! With this volume, The Complete Peanuts reaches the halfwaypoint of Charles M. Schulz’s astounding half-century run on the greatestcomic strip of all time. These years are especially fecund in terms of new canine characters, as Snoopy is joined by his wandering brother Spike(from Needles), his beloved sister Belle (from Kansas City), and... did you know he had a nephew? In other beagle news,Snoopy breaks his foot and spends six weeks in a cast, deals with his friend Woodstock’s case of the “the vapors,” and getsinvolved in a heated love triangle with Linus over the girl “Truffles.” The Complete Peanuts 1975-1976 features several other long stories, including a rare “double track” sequence with twoparallel narratives: Peppermint Patty and Snoopy travel to participate in the Powderpuff Derby, while Charlie Brown finallygets to meet his idol Joe Shlabotnik. And Peppermint Patty switches to a private school, but commits the mistake of allowingSnoopy to pick it for her; only after graduation does she realize something’s not quite right! Plus: A burglary at Peppermint Patty’s house is exacerbated by waterbed problems... Marcie acquires an unwanted suitor...Charlie Brown and Peppermint Patty become desk partners... The talking school building collapses... Lots of tennis jokes...and gags starring Schroeder, Lucy, Franklin, Rerun, Sally, and that vicious cat next door. It’s another two years of Peanuts at itsfinest! Featuring an introduction by comedian Robert Smigel (Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Saturday Night Live).

The Complete Peanuts 1977-1978:As the 1970s wind down, the last two recurring Peanuts characters havefallen into place: Snoopy’s brother Spike and the youngest Van Pelt sibling,Rerun. But that doesn’t mean Schulz’s creativity has diminished; in fact, thisvolume features an amazing profusion of hilariously distinctive new one- (ortwo-) shot characters! For instance, in an epic five-week sequence, when Charlie Brown, foundguilty by the EPA of biting the Kite-Eating tree, he goes on the lam andends up coaching the “Goose Eggs,” a group of diminutive baseball players,Austin, Ruby, Leland, and —did you know there was a second Black Peanutscharacter, aside from Franklin?—Milo. Also: a tennis-playing Snoopy ends up reluctantly teamed with the extremeType “A” athlete Molly Volley... who then reappears later in the book, nowfacing off against her nemesis, “Crybaby” Boobie. (Honest!) Add in Sally’snew camp friend Eudora, the thuggish “caddymaster” who shoots downPeppermint Patty and Marcie’s new vocation, an entire hockey team, and asurprise repeat appearance by Linus’s sweetheart “Truffles” (creating a lovetriangle with Sally), all in addition to the usual cast of beloved characters(including the talking schoolhouse and the doghouse-jigsawing cat, who getsahold of Linus’s blanket in this one), and you’ve got a veritable crowd ofcharacters. Introduction by 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin.

It’s another four years of the greatest comic strip of all time, full of laughsand surprises.
