    1965 is probably the year that Peanuts took its place in the cultural pantheon especially with the surprising success of A Charlie Brown Christmas that December I admit that I didn't start at the beginning like I did with Calvin Hobbes just because the sheer amount of material in the Peanuts canon makes it dauntingThat said this is a good place to start The main cast Charlie Brown Lucy Linus Sally Schroeder and Snoopy have pretty much settled into their consistent forms Peppermint Patty has been introduced although she lives at the other end of town from the others which might as well be the other side of the globe from their perspective In the next few years Franklin and Marcie will joinCharles Schulz' outlook on life as portrayed in this strip was a uniue perspective in pop culture He takes all the touchstones of a nostalgic idyll kids playing baseball going to camp staging a Christmas pageant but approaches them in the most pessimistic way possible Obviously Charlie Brown suffers most but all the kids endure frustration and failure They deal with their problems with a weird mix of adult cynicism adolescent awkwardness childish irresponsibilityand child like perseverance and hope They shout AAAAUUUUGGGHHHH to the heavens and storm away from their problems but none of them ever gives up entirely It's a mature balanced worldview that I wish was commonThere are a lot of other endearing ualities in this comic but one that stands out for me is how simple and low key the whole thing is Schulz is one of those great American creators of the twentieth century up there with Walt Disney Dr Seuss Gene Rodenberry Jim Henson Steven Spielberg and George Lucas They all came up with characters and stories that took an indelible place in the world's imagination But while the others on the list concocted bombastic colorful characters and places Schulz's cast and plots were deliberately mundane It's just a bunch of elementary school kids hanging out in their Anytown USA neighborhood Granted there's a beagle who likes to don a WWI pilot helmet and the kite eating tree and Linus' blanket may be sentient sometimes but that's as magical or exciting as anything gets around here And in an era where every film book and TV show is in a fierce competition to see which can be the most explosive shocking and heartbreaking Peanuts is balm for the soulThere's really not much I can add to that so here are some of my favorites from this particular tome

    My annual tradition of ending the year with a book from the Complete Peanuts collection continued with another great one In this edition Snoopy has his first battle with the Red Baron Woodstock is born on Snoopy's stomach and we are introduced to Peppermint PattyI found a place online that has annotations for each of these books This was really helpful as otherwise I would have missed the references to the Avis Rent a Car and Hathaway shirt commercialsAlso this was the book where I realized I married Lucy Van Pelt

    Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcentercom I am the original author of this essay as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegallyI recently received a hundred dollar gift certificate to Borders from my brother and sister in law for Christmas; but that ironically created a problem for me in that I've thoroughly trained myself over the last three years to think of books only in terms of library rentals making it difficult to picture what kinds of books I might want to actually own permanently So I bought a hundred bucks in comics J sus Chr st I suck And one of these purchases was a volume in Fantagraphics' new hardcover reissuing of all 18000 Peanuts strips that Charles Schulz ever wrote each massive over designed tome covering two years in the strip's history; the one I picked up covers the 730 strips published in 1965 and '66 a seminal time for Peanuts that cemented the strip's lasting popularity for good See it seems any that less and less people understand this but it was during the '60s that Schulz first started infusing his deceptively simple strip with all kinds of heady Modernist references to theology philosophy the New Math and turning it from the simple children's diversion it used to be into a suddenly hip Silver Age cultural touchstone; and this of course was before the '70s when Schulz first started running out of ideas deciding to devote the strip and to being the unchanging daily core of a TV friendly merchandising empireSo on the one hand the book is a real treat a reminder of the exuisite minimalist humor that Schulz was so perfect at when he was at his creative height during the exact period of work I myself was raised on mostly through an endless series of cheap tattered paperbacks bought for a dime at garage sales that so heavily influenced my own sense of humor; but on the other hand I'm also kind of disgusted at myself for buying a 40 over designed hardback doorstop full of freaking comic strips and acknowledge that that now officially makes me one of those academically trained stuffy white males who are as we speak sucking away what little fun still remains in the world of comics just like stuffy academic white males ruined jazz and ruined baseball and ruined the blues In fact if you want a good look at all the formerly fun things that stuffy academic white males have ruined over the years simply make a list of all the documentaries Ken Burns has ever made As nice as it's been to sit and re read all these classic strips from the series' height it's hard to look at all those artsy detail blowups and that dark on dark design scheme and not think You know I've now officially become one of those creative class douchebags who everyone complains about and there's a part of me who hates myself for it Good griefOut of 10 90no wait I mean 62no wait I don't know what I mean

    The one the only This volume of the Fantagraphics releases has a lot of dailies and Sundays that will probably be among series fans' favorites some of mine Sydney or the Bush; Snoopy gains weight trying to forget his latest beautiful beagle girlfriend; Sally has to wear an eye patch; Charlie Brown goes to summer campIt's hard to overstate Schulz's genius in Peanuts at least up until the 1960s Unlike a lot of latter day strips which are composed basically of broad gags not characters cough Dilbert cough; cough Garfield cough Schulz's comics have a subtlety to them and the characters come to be real people who we know and like at least in most cases I'm not so sure I like Violet Most of the comics in this collection are either laugh out loud funny touching visually hilarious or all three together

    Here we are getting into classic Peanuts territoryThis book has Snoopy's first dogfight against The Red Baron the first appearance of Peppermint Patty and so on Charlie Brown goes to camp then Linus goes the next year Charlie Brown gets hit by a car Sally Brown versus amblyopia Snoopy's doghouse burns down and he loses his Van GoghLinus lights a candle and Lucy curses the darkness

    Ok So it's just comic strips But outside of comics aficionados Peanuts is criminally under appreciated This particular batch has a bunch of seuences that were far surreal than I recalled Lucy makes a slideshow of Charlie Brown's faults Lucy enters Linus and his blanket as a science fair exhibit Linus paints a mural inside Snoopy's doghouse It's funny stuff

    Peanuts rolling along Charlie Brown goes to camp for the first time; later so does Linus Snoopy becomes a WWI flying ace and A dark and stormy night makes its first appearance for a seuence of about a week after which he having dragged his typewriter to the doghouse in the opening gets rid of it Peppermint Patty is introduced taking over the baseball team Linus evades his blanket hating grandmother by mailing his blanket to himself and it goes wrong

    Although I had grown up with Peanuts I only became an aficionado in 2008 when a now ex boyfriend bought me the first volume of these gorgeous Fantographic editions Although I feel like my progress is slow I suppose reading 16 years' worth of material in 12 years I'm still going faster than reality As long as I'm done by 2058 I'm not concernedBy 1965 66 we're into the thick of the Golden Age Charlie Brown Lucy Linus Sally Schroeder and Snoopy are so firmly defined that now Schulz is introducing new traits that will become instant classics Sally planning to marry Linus Snoopy as the Red Baron Charlie Brown and then Linus at camp Story arcs proliferate and in a way the vibe here is less directed toward strong individual segments and a kind of nostalgic evocation of childhood I think even then in the heat of the transitional '60s it would have had a strong impact Now from my vantage point as a child of the '90s reflecting on a world gone mad at the end of the '10s I feel both compelled and mournfulThese strips were being issued at the same time as Peanuts was making the transition into television although I don't think we can see any signs of Schulz selling out here He has absolute command of these characters and is true to his form and morals I'm interested to see where things go as the gang become true American icons and their creator has to face that complexity The big introduction here of course is Peppermint Patty who breezes in like a whirlwind late in the book to take over the baseball team She's so fully formed from day one it's uite surprising The rest of the gang languish in obscurity pity Shermy Violet and Patty and cameos from 5 Frieda and my beloved Pig Pen But they're not really missed amongst the vibrancy of the main gang Bless you Mr Schulz

    The cover of this volume features Charlie Brown but it's clear that these were the character's last years as the main protagonist of the comic strip In these years Snoopy became and prominent and by 1968 the imaginative pup had taken over the comic strip as its leading character Snoopy clearly goes beyond being a dog in this volume he skates at a pond and falls in love with a girl beagle January '65 he writes and even publishes short stories July '65 he surfs August '65 and most importantly he imagines himself as a First World War ace pilot for the first time with his house figuring as a 'Sopwith Camel' 10 October '65 This idea leads to many story panels especially Sunday pages devoted to Snoopy's vivid imagination Charlie Brown suffers the usual frustrations with homework at baseball and with his secret love for the little red haired girl His best story is when he enters a spelling bee this idea from February '66 would be expanded in the first Peanuts feature film 'A Boy Named Charlie Brown'Sally too has some fine moments trying to grasp the new math October '65 and having to wear an eye patch to fight a lazy eye November '65 Apart from the regular gang uite some new characters are introduced in these years Charlie Brown meets Roy at Summer camp June '65 who meets Linus the following year Roy in turn introduces Peppermint Patty to the gang August '66 and she immediately shows to be a character to stay Meanwhile March '66 sees an embryonic version of WoodstockCharlie Brown's mishaps are less moving than in earlier volumes but Schulz is still in top form His only mistakes are the misguided gags on Linus' blanket being alive March '65 and a gag appearing twice January 24 December 20 1966
