The Complete Peanuts 1985-1986 (Volume 18) now available

The Complete Peanuts 1985-1986, volume 18 of Fantagraphics' reprint series of the Peanuts comic strip, is now shipping from Fantagraphics.  This collection includes all the comic strips from 1985 and 1986 and an introduction from comedian and actor Patton Oswalt.

The latest two-volume box set, The Complete Peanuts 1983-1986 Gift Box Set, which includes both Volume 17 (published earlier in 2012) and the just-released Volume 18 together in a special slipcase, is shipping as well.

Both the individual book and the box set are also available now from your local comic book store, or can be ordered from Amazon or other book stores.

Some of the highlights of the 1985-1986 volume: the Peanuts gang encounters Halley's Comet, go to "rain camp" and "survival camp," and meet new character Tapioca Pudding; Peppermint Patty wins the “All-City School Essay Contest” with her “What I Did During Christmas Vacation” essay; and Snoopy accidentally does in his dog house with a cannon.

For a 16-page preview, photos of the box set slipcase, and more information, visit the Fantagraphics website's pages for The Complete Peanuts 1985-1986 and the The Complete Peanuts 1983-1986 Gift Box Set.

Amazon was still showing the books with a ship date of September 19 when I wrote the blog post... but I see they do list them as now shipping (as proved by the fact that you received your copy). I've updated the blog post. Enjoy the latest volume!
