Fantagraphics Books co-publisher Gary Groth said that publishing THE COMPLETE PEANUTS represented the apex of the company’s 27-year commitment to publishing the best cartooning in the world. “PEANUTS is a towering achievement in the history of comics,” said Groth. “I can’t think of a better way to honor Schulz’s artistic legacy than to make his oeuvre available to the public in a beautifully designed format that reflects the integrity of the work itself.”

Since 2004, Fantagraphics Books has been republishing the complete run of the comic strip Peanuts in hardcover form, starting from the origin of the strip in October 1950. (For more details on the series, see The Complete Peanuts ).

Charles M. Schulz made frequent topical references within the strip to the events and popular culture of the time, which would have required no explanation for a contemporary reader. Some of these references are now rather obscure, and might not be understood by someone not versed in the popular culture of the period. These annotations aim to provide background for such references, and explain their significance. Links to Wikipedia are provided where necessary, if more information is desired.

Each chapter corresponds with a separate volume from the Fantagraphics series, corresponding to two years of the published strips. The original publication dates of the strips are given in addition to the page numbers of the collection, so this reference work can also be used by people with access to the original archives.

Cartoonist Seth talks with the Washington Post about how The Complete Peanuts project came to life as the publication of the final volume nears:

The strip focuses entirely on a social circle of young children, where adults exist but are rarely seen or heard . The main character, Charlie Brown , is meek, nervous, and lacks self-confidence. He is unable to fly a kite, win a baseball game, or kick a football held by his irascible friend Lucy, who always pulls it away at the last instant. [5]

Peanuts is one of the literate strips with philosophical, psychological, and sociological overtones that flourished in the 1950s. [6] The strip's humor (at least during its '60s peak) is psychologically complex, and the characters' interactions formed a tangle of relationships that drove the strip.

Peanuts achieved considerable success with its television specials, several of which, including A Charlie Brown Christmas [7] and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown , [8] won or were nominated for Emmy Awards . The Peanuts holiday specials remain popular and are currently broadcast on ABC in the U.S. during the corresponding seasons. The Peanuts franchise met acclaim in theatre, with the stage musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown being a successful and often-performed production.
