    I bought this set for my boys a few Christmasses back but really I bought it for me.I ve read the entire thing a few pages at a time over the course of a some months and I was sad to come to the last wonderfully bound hard cover.Although I was sad to reach the end I also applaud Bill Watterson for knowing the power in ending something He quit while he was ahead and left us something golden It would lessen the work if he had carried on past the point the fire left him, repeating old themes to I bought this set for my boys a few Christmasses back but really I bought it for me.I ve read the entire thing a few pages at a time over the course of a some months and I was sad to come to the last wonderfully bound hard cover.Although I was sad to reach the end I also applaud Bill Watterson for knowing the power in ending something He quit while he was ahead and left us something golden It would lessen the work if he had carried on past the point the fire left him, repeating old themes too many times, and forcing us to watch as the life leached out of these beloved characters perhaps even passing the torch on to contracted writers to continue milking the cash cow ad infinitum But he didn t Thanks Bill.Calvin and Hobbs captures a type of magic The humour dances between many levels, brilliant visual comedy, erudite observation, poignant insight, laugh out loud slap stick, and just damn feel good stuff that touches everyone who has really lived.I fell into Calvin and Hobbes world in my 30s and intend to keep dipping back in every time life gets me down.Go try it Join my 3 emails a year newsletter prizes

    I m a Calvin and Hobbes fan from way back so this set has been on my radar for quite a while After a few years of having this on my wish list, my wife finally got it for me for Christmas It was worth the wait.As everyone knows, Calvin is a six year old boy whose best friend is his stuffed tiger Hobbes This book collects every Calvin and Hobbes strip The dailies are in black and white and the Sunday strips are in color, as nature and Bill Watterson intended Dates accompany each strip noting I m a Calvin and Hobbes fan from way back so this set has been on my radar for quite a while After a few years of having this on my wish list, my wife finally got it for me for Christmas It was worth the wait.As everyone knows, Calvin is a six year old boy whose best friend is his stuffed tiger Hobbes This book collects every Calvin and Hobbes strip The dailies are in black and white and the Sunday strips are in color, as nature and Bill Watterson intended Dates accompany each strip noting when it was originally printed.The presentation is great The pages are heavy duty and slick, built to last The colors are vibrant but not overdone, lookinglike the Sunday strips would have originally looked if not printed on the cheapest newsprint imaginable The Sunday strips are shuffled slightly so they don t interrupt the flow of longer arcs, like the propeller beanie or the many camping trips The individual volumes lay flat for easy reading The dimensions are slightly larger than the omnibuses for the 1990s Honestly, six or eight volumes would probably make for easier reading but this set is pretty damn impressive.As for the content, it s as magical as it ever was On one level, it s a look back at the unbridled imagination and enthusiasm that goes with being six years old and having the world at your disposal On another level, it s a realistic, sometimes cynical, look at the world through the eyes of a child.I read a littlethan half of this material before Bill Watterson went on the first of his two sabbaticals, which is a shame because the strip truly plateaued once he came back The Sunday strips busted free of the usual shackles and Watterson had a lotleeway to experiment Watterson s art is simplistic at times, partly because of the Peanuts influence, but it s fun to watch the look of the strip evolve as he gotcomfortable with it The tweaks were so gradual that most people didn t notice but it s readily apparent when flipping through the first few strips and then the last few.Watterson gets a lot of credit for going out on top and not milking the cash cow that was Calvin and Hobbes until the udders became infected and gangrenous Calvin and Hobbes were never used to sell insurance, for instance, and Watterson never earned a dime on the sticker of Calvin peeing on various things that we see everywhere The strip may have gotten a littlecynical toward the end, if anything, but was still the best thing in the funny pages.It took a couple weeks for me to chew through this and it ll be a while before I pick it up again, what with an infant in the house and all Still, I have to wonder what the strip would be like today, what with global warming, social media, and all the rest of the stuff that has transpired since Watterson called it quits in 1995.The best comic strip of the modern era is still the best comic strip of the modern era Five out of five stars

    Me and my sister, who is the coolest sister ever, got this for each other for Channukah one year I mean, we didn t buy two we split one copy to share, because we grew up on Calvin Hobbes, and we even still communicate in Calvin Hobbes sometimes, where one of us will describe the first panel of a strip, and the other will answer with a description of the last panel The one about the smocks where they re supposed to be sculpting and Hobbes gets obsessed with the smock and the last panel is Me and my sister, who is the coolest sister ever, got this for each other for Channukah one year I mean, we didn t buy two we split one copy to share, because we grew up on Calvin Hobbes, and we even still communicate in Calvin Hobbes sometimes, where one of us will describe the first panel of a strip, and the other will answer with a description of the last panel The one about the smocks where they re supposed to be sculpting and Hobbes gets obsessed with the smock and the last panel is him going Smock smock smock smock smock, and an incredulous Calvin is all, What on earth is wrong with you will still collapse us into giggles until we weep In case you are less obsessed than we are, here is the one I mean And in case you doubt my eternal devotion, I did this for my birthday this past year Anyway, my sis I even built a special shelf in my apartment for this book to rest its glowing head upon BUT, because I am almost unbearably lame, I have yet to take it off of its perch and read it Why Perhaps because I am so in awe of Bill Watterson that I am afraid to sully its glorious pages with my dirty fingertips Perhaps because merely to behold it brings mejoy than reading almost anything probably could Perhaps But eventually I will read it And I will love itthan probably any other book in my library

    Everyone loves Calvin and Hobbes I do, too It s not just funny, it s also very wise Tongue in cheek philosophy and sociology Usually the best part of the newspapers that choose to publish it, newspapers that in turn got better per definition than newspapers who don t But what about Donald and Hobbes Funny, and a little bit scary Take a look for yourself D Everyone loves Calvin and Hobbes I do, too It s not just funny, it s also very wise Tongue in cheek philosophy and sociology Usually the best part of the newspapers that choose to publish it, newspapers that in turn got better per definition than newspapers who don t But what about Donald and Hobbes Funny, and a little bit scary Take a look for yourself D

    I finished this some time ago, but I wanted to mark it here as one of the highlights of the year I consider Calvin and Hobbes my dear friends and I hope they are still having fun someplace with a lot of snow I don t have a kid of my own, but if I did, I would surely buy this for his shelves I borrowed mine from the Library

    One of those seminal touchstones from my childhood that I still connect with today Anytime I read this it automatically makes me happy This series had a lot of influence on me, in various ways it took me many years to realize this btw I love the art, wit, humor, devious wryness, cultural critique, imagination, humanism slyly mixed with cynicism, the whimsy Watterson merges a beautifully skilled visual style with brilliant comedic timing and writing Apogee of the comic strip here imo An One of those seminal touchstones from my childhood that I still connect with today Anytime I read this it automatically makes me happy This series had a lot of influence on me, in various ways it took me many years to realize this btw I love the art, wit, humor, devious wryness, cultural critique, imagination, humanism slyly mixed with cynicism, the whimsy Watterson merges a beautifully skilled visual style with brilliant comedic timing and writing Apogee of the comic strip here imo An incredible 10 year run, and he could have kept it going for much much longer but didn t want to grind the thing to dust and become repetitive plus I think Watterson got super sick of dealing with the constraints of newspapers and the increasing shackles and marginalization of comics in that medium And on a side note I find it fascinating to contrast the careers of Watterson and Charles Schultz Great talents, interesting to compare the creative decisions evolutions in their work but also the business financial brand decisions Not necessarily saying either is right or wrong but the juxtaposition showcases some of the dilemmas and choices that face creators especially issues facing comic artists of that particular era but certain issues still hold true today

    There was big news in the comics world this week when we learned that the reclusive Bill Watterson, author of the beloved Calvin and Hobbes cartoon who has been retired for almost 20 years, has been quietly collaborating on a new comic strip, Pearls Before Swine.Calvin and Hobbes ended in 1995, and for those who were born after that, I think it s hard to convey how much loss was felt when Watterson stopped drawing I mean, I felt genuine loss. I LOVED Calvin and Hobbes and I read it in the paper There was big news in the comics world this week when we learned that the reclusive Bill Watterson, author of the beloved Calvin and Hobbes cartoon who has been retired for almost 20 years, has been quietly collaborating on a new comic strip, Pearls Before Swine.Calvin and Hobbes ended in 1995, and for those who were born after that, I think it s hard to convey how much loss was felt when Watterson stopped drawing I mean, I felt genuine loss. I LOVED Calvin and Hobbes and I read it in the paper every day Kids, this was back when people actually read newspapers I stopped reading the comics page after Watterson retired nothing else compared to his brilliant and hilarious stories of a rambunctious boy and his imaginary pet tiger A few years ago I was thrilled that someone had cataloged all of the Calvin and Hobbes cartoons into a database so you could search for keywords Oh, what fun I had looking up old favorites I own the complete collection of CH, and it is delightful to page through I have so many fond memories of reading this comic that it s a trip back to my childhood , but if you are looking for a specific strip, it is hard to find in the books unless you know the date But hooray for the internet search engine If you have never read Calvin Hobbes, I highly recommend them to, well, everyone Watterson s stories are clever and humorous and combine elements of philosophy, history, sociology, psychology, and the fun of being an energetic kid Now if you ll excuse me, I need to finish my game of CalvinBall

    if there was a better part of my childhood than reading these these comics, i honestly can t think of it these stretched my brain as a kid never pandered to his audience i learned so many words and references from these i specifically remember looking up transmogrify, kafka and phlegm in my mom s giant dictionary, and later on laughing when i learned about the philosophers calvin and hobbes.reading these is probably a big part of how i ended up being the kind of person who would enjoy a site if there was a better part of my childhood than reading these these comics, i honestly can t think of it these stretched my brain as a kid never pandered to his audience i learned so many words and references from these i specifically remember looking up transmogrify, kafka and phlegm in my mom s giant dictionary, and later on laughing when i learned about the philosophers calvin and hobbes.reading these is probably a big part of how i ended up being the kind of person who would enjoy a site like this i was talking to a friend the other night for several hours, and somehow it came up at some point that we shared all the major points of our personality, and we both attributed those aspects to having read these they make you the kind of person who s not just willing to accept things without questioning them.the way watterson taps into the different sides of his brain to make all these different characters is so obvious and endearing that it s no wonder he never leaves his house these days for fear of being mobbed by adoring fans i never realized it until muchrecently, but these books also taught me that it s possible not to sell out the story of watterson being approached for huge marketing deals and turning every one of them down is really inspiring i know personally i d buy any official calvin and hobbes merchandise i could get my hands on, even now, but the fact that none exists is truly great in its way please please please read calvin and hobbes you can borrow my copy
