The Complete Peanuts

Cincuenta años de tiras cómicas. 25 libros en total a dos libros por año. 12 años y medio para publicarlos todos. Así de monumental es el proyecto de Fantagraphics Press para publicar todas las tiras de la genial Peanuts, esa obra maestra de Charles M. Schulz. Me encanta Peanuts. Lo de leer Guerra y paz al ritmo de una palabra al día se me quedó grabado. Sobre los primeros años:

This first volume, covering the first two and a quarter years of the strip, will be of particular fascination to PEANUTS aficionados worldwide: Although there have been literally hundreds of PEANUTS books published, many of the strips from the series? first two or three years have never been collected before ? in large part because they showed a young Schulz working out the kinks in his new strip and include some characterizations and designs that are quite different from the cast we?re all familiar with. (Among other things, three major cast members ? Schroeder, Lucy, and Linus ? initially show up as infants and only ?grow? into their final ?mature? selves as the months go by. Even Snoopy debuts as a puppy!) Thus THE COMPLETE PEANUTS offers a unique chance to see a master of the artform refine his skills and solidify his universe, day by day, week by week, month by month.
