Peanuts has almost always been collected and reprinted in black and white. But many who read the popular comic strip during its original newspaper run remain fond of the striking, pastel coloring of its Sunday pages, which made for a surprisingly different and fulfilling reading experience. As the 50-year run of Peanuts concludes, all the classic characters — Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroder, Sally, Pig-Pen, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie — are all present, as is the brightest star of the strip, Snoopy. This final volume highlights Snoopy's fantastical stint as the World Famous Patriot Soldier at Valley Forge, the emergence of fan-favorite character Rerun Van Pelt, and Charles M. Schulz's heartfelt farewell letter to his fans.
Collected in this gorgeous, oversized coffee table book, the strips in Peanuts Every Sunday 1996–2000 have been scrupulously restored and re-colored to look better than they ever have — allowing fans and new readers to immerse themselves in Schulz's timeless masterpiece.
