The entire body of Calvin and Hobbes cartoons published in a truly noteworthy tribute to this singular cartoon in The Complete Calvin and Hobbes . Composed of three hardcover, four-color volumes in a sturdy slipcase, this New York Times best-selling edition includes all Calvin and Hobbes cartoons that ever appeared in syndication. This is the treasure that all Calvin and Hobbes fans seek.

These are amazing.. a three book set.. but unless you want to binge read all of it I would recommend checking them out in order as there is a lot of material to cover. I read a lot but I find daily comics hard to push through like a novel so I read 3-5 weeks at a single setting to appreciate it.

Funny stuff... ok really funny.

For anyone who's not at all familiar with the "Calvin and Hobbes" comic strip - Here's a brief outline of what one can expect to see in this volume....

This cartoon follows the often-humorous adventures (both real and fantasized) of Calvin, a precocious, mischievous and very outspoken 6-year-old rugrat, and his sardonic, stuffed tiger, Hobbes.

Together these 2 rascals (especially Calvin) get themselves into all sorts of comical predicaments that cover such broad issues as public education, philosophical quandaries, environmentalism, and flaws of opinion polls (to name but a few).

At the height of its popularity - "Calvin and Hobbes" was featured in over 2400 newspapers, worldwide.

Bill watterson has spent ten years creating one of the most clever, original, and beautifully drawn strip in the history of comics. Personally, I think 10 years of a masterpiece like Calvin and Hobbes is better than 40 years of recycled fat jokes (garfield)
