Reviews

* One of the finest cultural artifacts made in the 20th century. -- Russell T. Davies * Peanuts was, and is, and will continue to be the finest comic in the world. Bravo. -- Ray Bradbury * The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated. -- Umberto Eco * As powerful a comic art-piece as anything out today ... will delight Peanuts aficionados. Observer * Beautifully designed ... One of the high-water marks of post-war popular culture. Daily Telegraph * All sorts of important writers have marveled at the glorious simplicity of [Schulz's] draftsmanship and his unerring jokecraft, all underpinned by a quiet melancholy and stoicism ... by some miracle, the entire Peanuts oeuvre is gradually being republished in this country, by Canongate ... in lavishly appointed hardback ... Unlike almost everything you read as a child, they are actually better than you remember them. Spectator * These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment. The List * Canongate has had the brilliant wheeze of reprinting Charles Schultz's strip cartoon from the beginning in hardback volumes ... Herald * The Complete Peanuts is beautifully bound, a comprehensive resource and, with an index and introduction, a useful contextualisation of a modern legend. The Skinny * In these first volumes (1950-54), we can already see what will appeal to 21st century readers. Sunday Times * The cartoons in The Complete Peanuts are also more than 50 years old, but the downtrodden males, powerful females and consequent clash of personalities feel modern. A real treat. Sunday Times
