Peanuts was, and is, and will continue to be the finest comic in the world. Bravo. -- Ray Bradbury
The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated. -- Umberto Eco
As powerful a comic art-piece as anything out today . . . will delight Peanuts aficionados. * * Observer * *
Beautifully designed ... One of the high-water marks of post-war popular culture. * * Daily Telegraph * *
All sorts of important writers have marveled at the glorious simplicity of [Schulz's] draftsmanship and his unerring jokecraft, all underpinned by a quiet melancholy and stoicism . . . by some miracle, the entire Peanuts oeuvre is gradually being republished in this country, by Canongate . . . in lavishly appointed hardback . . . Unlike almost everything you read as a child, they are actually better than you remember them. * * Spectator * *
These timely re-issues illustrate not only the skill and subtle brilliance of his work but also the origins of the form beyond simple merriment. * * The List * *
Canongate has had the brilliant wheeze of reprinting Charles Schultz's strip cartoon from the beginning in hardback volumes . . . * * Herald * *
The Complete Peanuts is beautifully bound, a comprehensive resource and, with an index and introduction, a useful contextualisation of a modern legend. * * The Skinny * *
In these first volumes (1950-54), we can already see what will appeal to 21st century readers. * * Sunday Times * *
The cartoons in The Complete Peanuts are also more than 50 years old, but the downtrodden males, powerful females and consequent clash of personalities feel modern. A real treat. * * Sunday Times * *
