Even after 9 years, it’s still a pretty big thrill when the advance copies of the new volume of The Complete Peanuts show up at the office. Here’s Vol. 18, 1985-1986, and the 1983-1986 Box Set, fresh out of the box. These guys’ll be available in a couple of months — stay tuned for previews!
Will Hines and I are both collecting these volumes. There are 17 books so far, and this will be the 18th. I knew this fact about him— that he was collecting them— before we were friends, and it was one of the ways that I knew that we would at some point BE friends.
The fact that Patton Oswalt is writing the introduction for this upcoming volume is GREAT news.
