The Complete Peanuts Vol. 2: 1953-1954
Our second paperback volume of the acclaimed Complete Peanutsseries finds Schulz establishing his comic universe. Pigpen and his dust cloud join Charlie Brown, Shermy, Patty, Violet, Schroeder, Lucy, baby Linus, and Snoopy. Charlie Brown hasn't yet abandoned his brasher, prankish behavior from our first volume and Lucy has forcefully elbowed her way to the center of the action. Snoopy's appearances here may come as the biggest surprise: he behaves, for the most part, like a dog!
