A legacy, in black and white: Nashville's City Paper uses the release of The Compete Peanuts 1950-1952 as a chance to examine the legacy of Charles M. Schulz:

"'I think people are going to be surprised by it,' Jean Schulz, Charles' widow, said of the book's content, 'but I think they're going to be rather charmed. When they decided to rerun the strips after Sparky died [in 2000], I thought they might go back to the strips from the '50s, but United Features Syndicate [the strip's publisher] said nobody would recognize it.'"
