As Peanuts hits the mid-'80s, Peppermint Patty and Snoopy's brother Spike take starring roles. This volume of The Complete Peanuts is particularly romance-heavy as the Charlie Brown/Peppermint Patty/Marcie triangle heats up; love blossoms between two of the "Beagle Scout" birds; and Linus still refuses to be Sally's "Sweet Babboo"! Meanwhile, Peppermint Patty goes to the "sleep disorders center" to find out why she's always nodding off in class; Charlie Brown becomes, in his worst baseball-related humiliation to date, the mascot of Peppermint Patty's "Pelicans"; Linus finally gives up his security blanket once and for all; and Snoopy's brother Spike pops up in hilarious, deadpan vignettes set in far-flung Needles, California. The Complete Peanuts is the reprint project that launched a renaissance in comic strip publishing and the only place Charles M. Schulz's classic has ever been collected in its entirety. Featuring impeccable production values, each volume of this series features two successive years of newspaper strips (dailies and Sundays), plus bonus material such as celebrity introductions, interviews, and a brief biography of Schulz himself.
