  1. As soon as each new volume of The Complete Peanuts comes out, I buy it. There’s not a lot of stuff Fantagraphics publishes that I have to have, but these Peanuts books are beautifully designed and produced…and reasonably priced to boot.

  2. Ditto to that one! It’s like watching a cartoonist’s “growth chart” unfold before our eyes. Of course, by the time the collection is completed, I’m gonna need to reinforce for book shelf 🙂
