Charlie Brown hits a home run and Linus tries to get Snoopy a Supreme Court seat in the 22nd volume (’93-’94) of The Complete Peanuts.
Even the most devoted Peanuts fan will be surprised by revisiting Schulz’s last decade of work. Schulz’s cartooning has never been more expressive, and his sense of humor never more unencumbered by formula or tradition. In one sequence, the gang waits… and waits… for a school bus that never comes. Another shockingly showcases Charlie Brown hitting a game-winning home run ― off Roy Hobbs’ great-granddaughter? Then, Linus lobbies the White House to nominate Snoopy for a Supreme Court seat (it would go to Ruth Bader Ginsburg). Woodstock discovers his long-lost grandfather’s diary, detailing a hard life in captivity (birdcage). Snoopy lands in the hospital with pneumonia, and all three of his brothers ― Andy, Spike, and Olaf ― come pay their respects. This is the 22nd volume (of 25) of the bestselling series collecting every single one of the 18,000-plus strips created by Schulz from 1950-2000.
