“Complete Peanuts” Comes to a Close

Michael Cavna in The Washington Post.

This October Fantagraphics will publish the final volume — No. 26 — to conclude its “The Complete Peanuts” hardcover box set.

And a guiding hand throughout the creative process, over the past 13 years, has been Seth, who delved into the forthcoming volume by gathering Schulz ephemera, including his advertising art and editorial illustration.

This final volume collects all of Schulz’s rare, non-strip Peanuts art: storybooks, comic book stories, single-panel gags, advertising art, book illustrations, photographs―even a recipe! With close to 1000 Peanuts images included, all created by Schulz himself, no true Peanuts library would be complete without this final volume.

As a fitting end to The Complete Peanuts series, Jean Schulz, who was instrumental in putting this beloved series together, provides an emotional introduction to the volume. Black & white illustrations throughout.
