The Complete Calvin and Hobbes, Hardback Book
5 out of 5 (21 ratings)


Calvin and Hobbesis unquestionably one of the most popular comic strips of all time.

The imaginative world of a boy and his real-only-to-him tiger was first syndicated in 1985 and appeared in more than 2,400 newspapers when Bill Watterson retired on January 1, 1996.

Composed of three hardcover, four-color volumes in a sturdy slipcase, this edition includes all Calvin and Hobbescartoons that ever appeared in syndication.

This is the treasure that all Calvin and Hobbesfans seek.

An excellent compilation, although its sheer size makes it a bit unwieldy if you're just looking for something to hold onto your lap. The books are so long that the bindings on them are already starting to crack, as well. Worth buying for its authoritativeness, and it looks awful nice on the shelf, but don't throw out your older paperbacks, in other words.

For me, Calvin and Hobbes is the greatest comic strip ever. You may be sentimental about Peanuts but Calvin and Hobbes reaches hights, depths, humor, sadness and joy I never saw in another comic strip. It is as fresh today as it was when it first appeared as a daily strip.

This is it. The definitive collection of Bill Watterson's genius. The ultimate time-waster, the end of all productivity, and the great addiction of addictions. A treasure to read and to own.

Calvin and Hobbes, it's so great to have them all in one place in a nice leatherbound collection. The mischivous little kid who drove his parents nuts with his best friend a stuffed tiger. Hobbes was usually the voice of reason and caution (though not always) and Calvin was generally 'do whatever comes to mind and worry about the consequences later. One of the best comic strips of all time.
