Today’s KC’s Bookshelf column uses the latest volume of The Complete Peanuts to discuss why the reprint series is so great. This volume, in particular, is a turning point for the series, with some awfully weird storylines.

KC’s stories of what it took to collect comic strips back in the day brought pictures of a whole different era to my mind. Touching. Plus, he lists what he thinks any comic strip collection should contain.
