The Complete Peanuts: 1965-1966
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#xE2;#x80;#x94;the first two from outside the strip's regular little neighborhood#xE2;#x80;#x94;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 go check them out for herself. Her name? "Peppermint" Patty. With an introduction by filmmaker Hal Hartley.

This one was better than the first one--but there wasn't enough of a change for me to give it more than 3 stars. I still enjoyed it, but it didn't interest me as much as later Peanuts strips. Read full review
