    It'll be years before anyone completes it. [​IMG]

    I've got the first hardcover, and it's fantastic. I'm only up to 22 September 1951 (the strip started 2 October 1950), but it's shocking how great this is. A lot of these old strips have never been reprinted, and they've got a sharp wit missing from later years when Schulz was merely very good. The closest thing to a complaint is that the Sunday strips aren't in color, but that's not entirely a bad thing; it lets you see Sparky's linework clearly. The design of the book is also very good, and there's 30-page interview with Schulz at the end. My comic shop has this on my pull list, so I'm already eagerly looking forward to 1953-1954 in October.

    Ever since Schulz passed away I was hoping someone would do this. I'm eagerly awaiting the first volume from Amazon.

    I do wish they could have released them at a one-per-quarter rate. 6 years is a lot less daunting than 12+. I'll be pushing 60 by the time the series is complete. [​IMG]

    Have to build a special shelf for these babies.

    I agree. I am a huge Peanuts fan and can't wait to get these. Now my family can't complain about what to get me for the next 12 years!!!
