This is the treasure that all "Calvin and Hobbes" fans seek. "Calvin and Hobbes" is 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. The entire body of "Calvin and Hobbes" cartoons published in a truly noteworthy tribute to this singular cartoon in "The Complete Calvin and Hobbes." "Calvin and Hobbes" one of the few universally admired by other cartoonists." --Charles Solomon, "Los Angeles Times Book Review"Read Less
It's very gratifying to read all of Calvin and Hobbes; finding strips I somehow missed as well as old favorites. Watterson is a genius.

It's Calvin & Hobes...what more is there to say?
Apparently Albris wants you to say at least 50 characters worth so here's mine: Arguably the best comic strip ever written.

I must for any avid reader
This set is great for those who use to be a fan of the Sunday Calvin and Hobbes on the funnies page. New generations can now enjoy the same witty jokes of a boy and his best friend. I highly recommend getting this set the outer box is constructed well and it makes a great gift.

I love Calvin & Hobbes
Whether you're a kid or an adult, you'll love Calvin & Hobbes. It's insightful, hilarious and deeply touching. Watterson manages keep it fresh from the very first image to the very last one. I can't think of another comic strip that could get me to burst out laughing on countless occasions or keep my up at night thinking about life and existence. Whenever I'm in a bad mood, I just open any volume of this collection to a random page and when I end up closing it I feel renewed. Highly, highly recommended.
