Many new characters, in one of Schulzâs most creative periods! With an introduction by Alec Baldwin.As the 1970s wind down, the last two recurring Peanuts characters have fallen into place: Snoopyâs brother Spike and the youngest Van Pelt sibling, Rerun. But that doesnât mean Schulzâs creativity has diminished; in fact, this volume features an amazing profusion of hilariously distinctive new one- (or two-) shot characters!
For instance, in an epic five-week sequence, when Charlie Brown, found guilty by the EPA of biting the Kite-Eating tree, he goes on the lam and ends up coaching the âGoose Eggs,â a group of diminutive baseball players, Austin, Ruby, Leland, andâdid you know there was a second black Peanuts character, aside from Franklin?âMilo.
Also: a tennis-playing Snoopy ends up reluctantly teamed with the extreme Type âAâ athlete Molly Volley... who then reappears later in the book, now facing off against her nemesis, âCrybabyâ Boobie. (Honest!) Add in Sallyâs new camp friend Eudora, the thuggish âcaddymasterâ who shoots down Peppermint Patty and Marcieâs new vocation, an entire hockey team, and a surprise repeat appearance by Linusâs sweetheart âTrufflesâ (creating a love triangle with Sally), all in addition to the usual cast of beloved characters (including the talking schoolhouse and the doghouse-jigsawing cat, who gets hold of Linusâs blanket in this one), and youâve got a veritable crowd of characters.
Itâs another two years of the greatest comic strip of all time, full of laughs and surprises. 730 black-and-white comic strips
