By Charles M. Schulz
Greenfield Open Stacks 741.5973 Sch821 1950-52
This is the first volume in an ambitious project to reprint the entire run of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip. Charlie Brown and Snoopy, the linchpins of the series, are firmly present, albeit a little snappier in personality. However, much of the supporting cast is different in these early years, with Lucy, Linus and Schroeder entering the series as infants and babies. Schulz also maintains a clean minimal style starting out, one that will morph and develop to create the iconic characters that so many know to this day.
The Complete Peanuts: 1953 – 1954 is also available in the Greenfield Open Stacks, call number 741.5973 Sch821 1953-54.
