The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970
Since the death of Charles M Schulz in 2001, I was happy to learn in 2003 that Fantagraphic Books was re-publishing the entire Peanuts comic strip in hard back over 12 1/2 year period. Just recently, I finished the tenth volume of the series, The Complete Peanuts 1969-1970, with a forward done by Mo Willems. In this volume, we are exposed to one of Snoopy’s alter egos, World War I Flying Ace, and we are introduced to the Snoopy’s best friend, Woodstock [June 22, 1970].
The best things I liked in this volume were Mr Schulz use of Snoopy to introduce some of the finer points of the game of hockey.
The previous volume can still be purchased in the US. Amazon.com still carries these volumes. The official current list of available The Complete Peanuts volumes can be found at Fantagraphic’s website.
