Charles Schulz’s Peanuts:Artist’s Edition HC—SPOTLIGHT

Charles Schulz (w & a & c)

CharlesSchulz's Peanuts debuted as what isarguably the most important comic strip of all time in 1950.Peanuts transcended the medium, presenting complex issuesand moral dilemmas in the space of four panels, while maintaining abitingly funny sense of humor. Charlie Brown, Lucy Van Pelt, Linus,Schroeder, kite eating tree, the Great Pumpkin, and, of course,Snoopy… all are embedded in our psyches. Now, for the firsttime, Schulz's classic creation will be seen in a way as close aspossible to the original art created by the artist himself—inIDW's multi-award-winning Artist's Edition format, with each stripbeing carefully scanned and reproduced.
