Weighing in at a hernia-inducing 22 lbs and covering almost 1,500 pages, this table-crushing collection is the single, comprehensive source for all things Calvin and Hobbes. It includes significant commentary from Bill Watterson and every single strip from the 10-year run.
The humor is insightful, mischievous, whimsical, sardonic, daring, honest, and profound. Calvin, the perpetual 6 year old, grabs boyhood by the horns and gives stodginess a shake. If it weren’t for the heft, this could make my desert-island collection.
I can’t express how thrilled I am that this set makes 8-year old roll in riotous laughter.
Give a hoot. Don’t miss any of them. Here are the others.
