  • The Complete Peanuts 1950-2000

    Charles M Schulz

    Product Code: AVYAP
    Hardback
    While the 50-year run of the Peanuts newspaper strip is obviously the heart and soul of Charles Schulz's career, he also created a large amount of Peanuts material that didn't run in the strip. This bonus 26th volume of The Complete Peanuts collects all of Schulz's non-strip related Peanuts art: storybooks, comic book stories, single-panel gags, advertising art, book illustrations, photographs and even a recipe. With close to 1,000 Peanuts images included, all created by Schulz himself, no true Peanuts library would be complete without this final, celebratory volume of The Complete Peanuts. As a fitting end to the volume - and the series - Schulz's widow, Jeannie Schulz, provides an emotional afterword to the volume, as well.

Things never slow down in Dick Tracy Volume 27, which reprints all dailies and Sundays from September 28, 1972 to July 6, 1974. "Chester Gould introduced a new hardhitting type of realism [that] marked a radical and historic departure: the comics were no longer just funny." Jerry Robinson, The Comics "This black and white morality play of Good vs. Evil was famously haunted by its gallery of grotesque and aptly named villains like Mumbles, the Brow and Flattop. Each of their faces was literally a "map," a map of hell, indicated by the most peculiar configuration of lines the artist could manage. What great cartooning...it's time to build new bookshelves to welcome one of America's singular artistic achievements." Art Spiegelman Ongoing series that reprints the complete comic strips by Chester Gould from 1931 1977 in 29 definitive volumes.

    From the author of the popular Introvert Doodles and Kind of Coping, Maureen "Marzi" Wilson is tackling all kinds of big feelings with over 175 relatable, supportive, and light-hearted comics in her signature style.

Sometimes we feel a little annoyed, or elated, or afraid. And you know, that's okay! In The Little Book of Big Feelings, Maureen "Marzi" Wilson takes us on a journey of self-acceptance and validation. After all, our emotions are only reactions to experiences that we can learn from; there's no such thing as a "bad" emotion. It's okay to be scared, it's alright to feel hopeful, and it's perfectly fine to feel both at the same time. There is a wide range of human emotions, and it's time we start embracing each one!
