Complete Peanuts 1971-1972 now shipping

I meant to have a review up before this happened, but the combination of a sick 4 year old, a sick self, and hammering deadlines meant the review did not happen (yet). But you don’t need a review, do you? It’s two full years of Peanuts. So order The Complete …

Belate my Valentine, Charlie Brown
