The first Complete Peanuts volume (1950-1952) is on sale at Amazon.com for 60% off its list price of $29. This is the second series of Fantagraphics historical strip reprints to go on radical sale, after the first Dennis the Menace collection was similarly discounted a couple of weeks ago.
Is this a smart way to get people to sample these hardcover series? Do they continue to buy additional volumes at higher prices? Or is Amazon or someone else stuck with stock they want to clean out? A quick check didn’t reveal any other fantastic Fantagraphics deals, although the 1955-1956 Peanuts book is on sale at the same price as the first one. Others in the series are 37% off (still good, but not this great).
