The Complete Peanuts 1985-1986: Vol. 18 (comics)
This volume of The Complete Peanuts reaches the middle of the go-go 1980s: a time of mallies (mallgoers), punkers (behold the sight of Snoopy with a mohawk), and endless litigation about the most trivial matters. Also in this volume: Peppermint Patty wins her school's essay contest, but snatches defeat from the jaws of victory with a disastrous acceptance speech; Lucy talks Charlie Brown into posing for their school's Swimsuit issue; Snoopy accidentally destroys his doghouse with a cannon; Sally gives Santa Claus a heart attack (literally!); and Snoopy's brother Spike pops up in various deadpan vignettes set in the desert.
The Complete Peanuts is the publishing 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.
