    Description

    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...

    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...

    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 b...

    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 ...

    Amazing but a bit too heavy

    This a complete collection of one of my favorite comic strips... This is a neatly packaged set of 3 books with date of each strip... wonderfully illustrated and great paper quality. A collector's item definitely!!

    A word of caution though - beware of the size. This set is a little two heavy and may not be suited for those who have space constraints.

    Excellent deal for an awesome book. And on time delivery.

    I always wanted to buy the complete calvin and hobbes but never could afford it. It cost Rs 6k+ in a normal book shop.
    As soon as I saw that I was gettting it for half the price I just went ahead and bought it. All Calvin n Hobbes lovers will love this book!.
    As for the shipment it was spot on.
    The only thing is that there was a small crushed corner in the box.But since it weighs 10.6 kg I guess its ok.

    Nice box set

    Its a very carefully bound box set. Though a little too heavy to use freely, the prints are all awesome. And the technique of printing the strips as it would appear in a paper cutting is very novel and amusing. All in all its a very nice collection.
