Overview

The first book collection of the classic and beloved Calvin and Hobbes comic strip!

"Most people who write comic dialogue for minors demonstrate surprisingly little feel for—or faith in—the original source material, that is, childhood, in all its unfettered and winsome glory. It is in this respect that Bill Watterson has proved as unusual as his feckless creations, Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson is the reporter who's gotten it right; childhood as it actually is."—Garry Trudeau, from the Foreword

This is the first collection of the classic comic strip that features Calvin, a rambunctious 6-year-old boy, and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes, who comes charmingly to life. Filled with a mix of Watterson’s standard and full-page Sunday strips, this collection is sure to please fans and newcomers alike.

One of the most imaginitive, heart-warming comic strips of all time.It will touch the heart and mind of every person to come across its' pages. It captures something other strips have yet to by showing what it truly means to have an imagination, sense of humor, and a real vocabulary.

Bill Watterson is a genius. Although I've read these collections dozens of times apiece over the years, I've always discovered a renewed appreciation for this strip each time I pick them up.

In my opinion, this is one of the best C&H collections out there. It actually shows how Calvin came to aquire Hobbes, which I've always wanted to know, and how their friendship developed. I like the simpler, cruder drawings because it shows how much Bill Watterson's skills have developed from that time.

Whenever I'm having a rough day, Calvin and Hobbes can always make it better. Calvin is a boy whose imagination takes him (and his best friend, a stuffed tiger named Hobbes) to incredible places. And gets him into quite a bit of trouble, too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for the child in each of us!

This is the best comic book ever, I really recommend it! Calvin is a 6 year old boy who thinks his stuffed tiger is real. Calvin has a wild imagination and no one will get him to behave! This book is full of hysterical adventures!

I just put this back on my shelf as we unpacked our books. I quickly pulled it off again to have a read. After 20 years it still makes me laugh out loud. --J.

I READ THIS WHEN I WAS A KID AND THOUGHT MY KIDS MIGHT LIKE IT. SOME OF IT WAS OVER THEIR HEADS BUT THEY LAUGHED AT SOME PARTS LIKE SOMEONE WAS TICKLING THEM. I RE-READ THE BOOK ALSO AND FOUND MYSELF LOL.

Calvin and Hobbes has such incredible imagination, humor, and wit that no other comic can ever compare to it. I have never laughed so much!
