Volume 25 of The Complete Peanuts presents the very final year of the defining comic strip of the 20th century, which ran for nearly 18,000 strips and for 50 years after its debut in 1950. This masterpiece includes all of 1999 through to the final strip on 13 February 2000. In this volume, Rerun takes centre stage and cements himself as the last great Peanuts character - when he embarks on a career as an underground comic book artist! This volume also features a huge surprise: the complete Li'l Folks, the weekly one-panel comic that Charles Schulz produced for his hometown paper. Li'l Folks was a clear precursor to Peanuts, and its inclusion here will bring The Complete Peanuts full circle.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I grew up with Peanuts. But I never outgrew it . . . For decades, Peanuts was our own daily security blanket. That's what makes Peanuts an American treasure. In his final strip, Charles Schulz wondered how he could ever forget the Peanuts gang. Thanks to this groundbreaking series, the rest of us never will - and we can share our love for the gang with our children and grandchildren for decades to come -- BARACK OBAMA
It's impossible to think of another popular art form that reaches across generations the way the daily comic strip does . . . at the pinnacle of that long tradition, there was Charles Schulz * * Seattle Times * *
The world of Peanuts is a microcosm, a little human comedy for the innocent reader and for the sophisticated -- UMBERTO ECO
Charles Schulz was, plain and simple, a great artist and philosopher . . . But most importantly, he teaches all ages that if you can learn to laugh at the things that cause you the most pain you will be the strongest of all. Peanuts: a real way of life -- JOHN WATERS
