The Complete Calvin and Hobbes (3 Volume Set) is one of the most famous comic strips of the twentieth century.

Summary Of The Book

Calvin and Hobbes, a comic strip, which depicts the story of the dream world of a boy and his imaginary tiger, was first published in 1985. It is a collection of four-color, three hardcover volumes in a sturdy slipcase. This edition comprises all the Calvin and Hobbes cartoons compiled for the first time. This comic strip was featured in over 2,400 newspapers by the time the author Bill Watterson retired on January 1, 1996.

This book is on The New York Times bestseller list.

About Bill Watterson

Bill Watterson II (born July 5, 1958) is an American cartoonist and the author of Calvin and Hobbes.

Some of his other popular books include, The Essential Calvin and Hobbes: A Calvin and Hobbes Treasury, Calvin & Hobbes Scientific Progress Goes "Boink", The Calvin and Hobbes Lazy Sunday Book, and The Indispensable Calvin And Hobbes: A Calvin And Hobbes Treasury.

He drew his first cartoon at the age of eight. He spent most of his childhood alone, drawing and cartooning. During his school years this continued, and he drew cartoons for his high school yearbook and newspaper. He discovered comic strips like Krazy Kat, Pogo, and Charles Schulz's Peanuts, which later inspired and influenced his aspiration to become a professional cartoonist. In 1980, Watterson graduated with a B.A. in political science from Kenyon. He was offered a job for a six-month trial period by The Cincinnati Post for drawing political cartoons. In 1988, Watterson was awarded the National Cartoonists Society's Humor Comic Strip Award and in 1986, he was the youngest person in history to receive the Society's Reuben Award. Watterson received the Reuben Award for the second time in 1988. He was a nominee for the third time in 1992.

A prized possession

Very few moments in your life you will feel a deep pang of guilt if you pirate the product. This is one of those products - Bill Watterson is a Genuis and Calvin is the most lovable comic character ever. If you download calvin strips online in jpegs or PDFs you will not feel good apart from missing out on the true experience of browsing the book in full resolution.

Get this one, it is worth it. Makes a great gift, looks great on your shelf and anytime you are sad just open one of the 3 books and chuckle your blues away.

If I could

Let's face it, not all of us have the sensibilities to understand Shakespeare. What can lesser mortals like me do. Here is an option.

I don't think Bill was any less of an artist than the Bard. In a simple comic strip he transcends from simple buffoonery to philosophy to love to even science fiction. Bill's writing is often depressing and sometimes even cynical but he does not present it in the form of a struggling author dying from cancer but with the help of a boy who is creative enough to imagine his tiger coming to life every now and then. And as the bard would say - 'Therein lies the...

A must have for all; including adults :-)

This is one book; I thought about quite a bit before buying. Yes it is a bit costly, and heavy and after all it is illustrated. So adults around me may make it a joke for few days. And yes when I really got it; it happened. But boy; this books are such joy. At this moment I've just finished 75% of part 1 and I'm loving it. Rather this is my mood lifter. Days when I come back from office and feel down [ for whatever reasons ...], feel like I'm stuck, feel like life is not moving... I sit with this book; read through few pages and voila ... I'm good old cheerful me again. This books is magic... ()

Days when I come back from office and feel down [ for whatever reasons ...], feel like I'm stuck, feel like life is not moving... I sit with this book; read through few pages and voila ... I'm good old cheerful me again. This books is magic in my life. Right now; I'm keeping one of the 3 on my bed beside me; so that I can weak up and read a few pages first each day.

And the best part is; I guess there is no one; who will not say ..."wah; that's me" at some point of this book. Definitely this is entirely not me; but every adult will find Calvin in their childhood for some or other strip. And for those ... who say I'm Calvin in my childhood; I would like to tell them ... "Read it all; and you'll also know how your parents felt about you :D"

Now about the book. The pages, binding, presentation and decoration; all are spot on; thought it is "printed and packed in China". And the total set is 6.1 KG and pretty big in size. So just think twice if you have space constraint; because you really need a good rack to keep it.

So the verdict is, get it. If you don't have a book rack, buy it and then get the book, if you feel this is for kids only, please get it and your opinion will change. It is truly a collector's edition!!!

More than just a comic strip

I started reading C&H as a college student and when I had read through all of it from a pdf, I promised that I will one day buy a copy of it for myself. It takes a very special comic strip to make you feel guilty about reading pirated versions of it online.

For a comic strip about a five year old mischevous boy and his imaginary friend of a stuffed tiger toy, it sure taught me a lot about life. For a book that has shaped my life more than all of the religious books put together, 6.4k is a bargain. This is not just a comic strip, this is a masterpiece, a political statement, a study in...

For a comic strip about a five year old mischevous boy and his imaginary friend of a stuffed tiger toy, it sure taught me a lot about life. For a book that has shaped my life more than all of the religious books put together, 6.4k is a bargain. This is not just a comic strip, this is a masterpiece, a political statement, a study in human psychology and the meaning(lessness) of life.

To classify this gem as merely a comic strip would be grave injustice. For a medium where you do not have the luxury of grandiose prose or pretty poetry, its takes a very different kind of genius to rise to this level of greatness. Make no mistake about it, this is one of the finest pieces of literature ever written, irrespective of medium.

Take a bow Bill Watterson, take a bow.

Great product

This is strictly for the collectors. So those who are Calvin and Hobbes fan will really like the hardbound collection - which is for keeps. However, much heavier than the softbound set! (View complete review)

Complete C&H

Nothing much to say regarding the contents. The books are a treat. Those who are thinking whether they should take the plunge and buy it or not, please don't hesitate. The contents are not going to get repeated, so better have it with you and readily available in a beautiful hardbound book. (View complete review)
