In The Complete Peanuts 1965-66 we are now in the mid-1960s – one of Schulz’s peak periods of creativity (and one-third of the way through the strip’s life!). Snoopy has become the strip’s dominant personality, and this volume marks two milestones for the character: the first of many ‘dogfights’ with the nefarious Red Baron, and the launch of his writing career (‘It was a dark and stormy night.’).

Two new characters – the first from outside the comic strip’s regular little neighborhood – make their bows. Roy (who befriends Charlie Brown and then Linus at summer camp) won’t have a lasting impact, but upon his return from camp he regales a friend of his with tales of the strange kids he met, and she has to check them out for herself. Her name? Peppermint Patty.

The Complete Peanuts 1965-66 features a new introduction by Hal Hartley, writer/director of acclaimed independent films Trust, Henry Fool, Kimono, Simple Men, The Unbelievable Truth, and Fay Grim.
