When I got pregnant, my family joked that I didn't need parenting books, just a complete collection of Calvin and Hobbes books. I love these comics.

A Calvin and Hobbes collection in which Stupendous Man fights Baby Sitter Girl, Spaceman Spiff escapes an alien menace, Tracer Bullet investigates a mystery, multiple duplicates wreak havoc, and peer pressure (and a phobia of cooties) leads Calvin to attempt to play baseball during recess. Funny stuff.--J.

The wit of Bill Watterson is always amazing. He is uneclipsed by an other comic writer, he deserves credit. This is really one great collection, the best one to start out with though is The Tenth Aniverserary Edition.
