THE FIRST FOUR YEARS OF PEANUTS SUNDAYS IN SPARKLING- REMASTERED COLOR! Since their original publication- Peanuts Sundays have almost always been collected and reprinted in black and white- and generations of Peanuts fans have grown up enjoying this iteration of these strips. But many who read Peanuts in their original Sunday papers remain fond of the striking coloring- which makes for a surprisingly different reading experience. It is for these fans (and for Peanuts fans in general who want to experience this alternate/original version) that we now present a series of larger- Sundays-only Peanuts reprints- which more closely duplicate that delightful- Sunday-morning reading experience and brings a splash of real color to Schulz's cast of colorful characters. Designed as a series of ten massive coffee-table quality books- each one containing a half-decade's worth of Sunday strips- Peanuts Every Sunday will be a proud addition to any Peanuts fan's bookshelf. As with most strips- Peanuts showed by far the quickest and richest development in its first decade- and Peanuts Every Sunday: 1952-1955- by compiling every strip from the first four years- offers a fascinating peek at Schulz's evolving creative process. Not only does the graphic side of the strips change drastically- from the strip's initial stiff- ultra-simple stylizations through a period of uncommonly lush- almost Pogo-ishly detailed drawings to something close to the final- elegant Peanuts style we've all come to know and love- but several main characters are gradually introduced - oddly enough- usually as infants who would then grow up to full- articulate Peanut-hood! - and then refined: Schroeder- Lucy- and Linus (Sally will make her very first appearance as a baby in our next volume.) Following in the footsteps of Fantagraphics' acclaimed presentation of the Carl Barks material in Walt Disney's Donald Duck- Peanuts Every Sunday: 1952-1955 has been scrupulously re-colored to match the original syndicate coloring (including some unusual colors for Charlie Brown's trademark zig-zag shirt- before it was officially yellow)- and is being printed using the same process of 'mellowing' out of tones to avoid the sharp colors that sometimes mar reprints of syndicated strips - allowing readers once again to plunge back into Charles Schulz's marvelous world.
