I called Fantagrphics books today and they told me they expect this boxed set back in print in March of 2014. They are taking pre orders over the phone. If you like, you can purchase the books separately from them now and they will ship the boxes when they arrive. Their price is just over 51 dollars. More than amazon, but still half of what third party sellers are selling them for. (Ask about any shipping discounts or promotions they may have.)
If the boxed set isn't important to you, Amazon should have both individual volumes for sale here now.
Newest Update: (August 16, 2013)
Well, you've probably noticed the boxed set for volumes 5 and 6 has not appeared as they should have. I was surprised after meeting them at the San Diego Comic convention and their assurances - so I gave them yet another call.
The pleasant lady at Fantagraphic informed me that there was a mix up at their printing company and the slipcases were never ordered.
The individual volumes are now available both on Amazon and through their company as separate books. But they couldn't give me any clear answers as to when the slipcase for this set might get made. ('Maybe a couple of months' was the best she would say.) She did tell me that all this happened because the owner passed away and the order was assumed to have been placed and never was.
She also said that if the slip case is important to you and you order the two volumes directly from them, they'll send the case whenever they get it printed. Call them directly for details.
After a year of calling and printing updates here they seem no clearer today when this complete box set will be available than they were in September of 2012.Read more ›
That may be gibberish to some, but to me, it was the dewey-decimal system location of the Peanuts strips in my Elementary school library. I really gained my love of Peanuts from those library-bound books, but always remembered coming back to 'The Peanuts Jubilee,' which was (at the time) the only way to find insight into the earlier strips. With Fantagraphic Books, we've been able to see what many of those early years were like. With the latest volume, we've moved into familiar territory with some of the more familiar characters and stories.
In this volume, a number of revelations come about:
-Lucy goes to extreme measures and throws Schroeder's piano to the kite-eating tree.
-Snoopy befriends one of the many birds that hangs around his doghouse, and the friendship with Woodstock is born.
-The Little Red-Haired Girl moves out of the neighborhood.
-The Head-Beagle appears(in name only). Soon after his 'appearance,' Snoopy is promoted to the role...and finds out how hard a job it is.
-Snoopy becomes the first beagle on the moon.
Some of the comics in this collection have been seen in some previous collections, but most cut out some of the key bits. One example was a previous Peanuts collection that showed the aftermath of the Little Red-Haired Girl moving away, but not what came before.
One note to make is that there appear to be two different versions of this volume. If you purchase the volume as a single book, it includes a 3-panel strip that was not included in the previous volume. The version that comes in the 2-book set (The Complete Peanuts 1967-1970) does not have the missing strip.
Snoopy completely comes into his own here, and his image on the cover couldn't be more appropriate. He appears with startingly more frequency throughout 1957 and 1958. By the end of this volume his top spot gets nearly set in stone. And it's not hard to see why. Here the long transformation from the "real" pet dog of the early 1950s to an almost surreal fantasm of a dog nears fruition (he still hasn't put on his WWI goggles or quaffed root beer yet, though). The imitations that began in the last volume continue inexorably here. He becomes a polar bear, a pouncing wild animal, a sea monster, he imitates Lucy, he gets called "ol' Dime a Dozen" and "Fuzzy Face", he imitates a penguin, and, best of all, a vulture. He also begins to really appreciate classical music (he even accompanies Schroeder on violin), sleeps with his head in his dog dish, and violently whips Linus around by his blanket. The extent of his transformation shows on the January 7th, 1958 strip where Charlie Brown says "The teacher told us to make a drawing of a real dog." Snoopy has truly come into his own. And later on, he became the most recognizable character of the Twentieth Century apart from Mickey Mouse.
Charlie Brown continues his quest for something meaningful and positive. But, as usual, some snags occur.Read more ›
