Just looking at the four box sets on my shelf and wondering...for those of you who have the four released boxes, what color are the "facing edges" of your boxes (the end that faces out when you face the books' spines to the back of the shelf)? The color of my first box is a distinct gold color, and the other three are more blue/purple slate color. In other words, the first seems very distinct from the other three. It's a minor thing, but I wanted to see if these colors are what everyone's getting. If so, the color scheme doesn't seem very well planned.

I'd give you my set's colors Funk, but they're out at my storage site buried in a box. Sorry.

I agree with you though, it would bother me a little bit.....

Re: The One and Only: The Complete Peanuts Collection - 1950-2000

I'm curious is anyone else still collecting the series? Thanks to my new job I was finally able to catch up.

I'm way behind. Only picked up the first three boxes. I wonder if any of those book clubs have any of them these days?

Yeah, I've bought a few, mainly through book clubs. I've now seen a couple in the bargain/closeout sections. So while I want to own them all eventually, I won't pay more than $5-10 per set.

'Peanuts' gang sold to Joe Boxer owner for $175 million.

Seems pretty cheap if you ask me.....hopefully this won't mess up the books that are coming out twice a year.

Update: Newsarama reached out to Fantagraphics Books regarding how the deal might impact their award-winning run of The Complete Peanuts.

Jacquelen Cohen, Director of Publicity and Promotions, replied, "We don't anticipate any changes with the release of The Complete Peanuts series. We've always had a great relationship with the Schultz Family and United Media and expect to continue successfully working with both."

The Fantagraphics collections have won three Eisner Awards and multiple Harvey Awards, including nods for Best Archival/Collection Project and Best Publication Design.

Original Story: Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the cast of Peanuts are finally leaving the nest, as Iconix Brand Group Inc. has partnered up with the family of late creator Charles Schulz to buy the comic property from United Feature Syndicate and E.W. Scripps for $175 million.

Just a shot I took since I picked up the latest two box sets. Not too bad a deal I figure for $31 for two books. Anyone still buying?

I'm still collecting, definitely. Hey, if you have the time, can you post a pic of all the box "spines" lined up in chronological order? I'm still looking for an answer to my earlier question...

I'm still buying. I kind of wish that I went with the boxed sets from the beginning.

Not buying, but my library has all of these, and I'm fixing to read them all. I've always loved Peanuts, but never really read it. My love comes from the cartoon, so it will be nice to see how these characters developed over the years.

Need the slipcases? Fantagraphics sells them separately. $5 each.

I've missed the last one or two--will probably pick them up at some point.

I never actually got into picking any of these up. I've got The Far Side and Calvin & Hobbes complete collections, and I don't often get to open them up, and I feel like I'd have the same problem with these. Are the first ones out of print and hard to find already?

They're all still in print as far as I know. Amazon doesn't seem to be missing any.

The colors of the books themselves are really nice when you take off the book jackets.

Awesome! Thanks for doing that. Those first four boxes are exactly the color I have, so my mind is at ease. Now, to buy the remaining boxes...

Thanks again!
