Watterson is a genius. He celebrates the human condition here in all its comedic glory.

Well, I decided I quite liked this comic book, though it is quirky at times and I probably laughed at most of the wrong parts. I will nonetheless read more of Calvin and Hobbes and try to like it better.

My brother got it yesterday as a parting gift from his company, but I stole it xP The rest were all boring non-fiction books on his to-read shelf (which is not even 2% similar to mine).

If you have read the first Calvin and Hobbes directory that was published in the 80's, then you have read this one.
It is a paperback version of half the first book. With classic strips.

Was inspired to read it after watching "Dear Mr. Watterson" documentary on Netflix.

I missed Calvin and Hobbes - back in the day, some of the first words Mom exchanged with me were about Calvin and Hobbes. Sometimes they were good ("Oh, good, Ross, you are up. New Mutant Snowgoon strip today!"), and sometimes not If you have read the first Calvin and Hobbes directory that was published in the 80's, then you have read this one.

One of the best comic insights into the workings of a child’s imaginative mind!

Calvin and Hobbes caught my attention as a small child, and even though I didn’t always get all of the more adult jokes, I still enjoyed them. After a few years of reading, I appreciated more and more and even now, as an adult, I enjoy the creativity and joy Calvin finds in every situation of life.

After reading every book of Calvin and Hobbes, I would recommend them to anyone who wants to find the joys of a simple life and I look forward to sharing them with my own boys when they are a bit Calvin and Hobbes caught my attention as a small child, and even though I didn’t always get all of the more adult jokes, I still enjoyed them.

What can I say? Calvin and Hobbes is just so classic, and so brilliant.

It's been awhile since I read it and I'm struck again how so many of the punchlines use very adult concepts and vocabulary, and yet I feel as though it's still so accessible to kids, too.

This particular collection appears to include both daily and Sunday strips, but no color. Still, the Sunday strips are seamlessly added in over a couple of pages and the lack of color doesn't impact the overall humor.

The first collection of Calvin & Hobbes - starting with Hobbes being ‘captured’, this is funkier than the later, more refined work as Watterson finds his focus and the look of the characters, but doesn’t suffer anything for all that. Highlights include the bedtime stories, Calvin’s hate-valentine and the wonderful “I didn’t get you anything for Christmas” hug. Wonderful stuff.

I love Calvin! He's a sadistic, sarcastic, fun, adventure-filled, weird, witty kid.

The book can be the Hobbes of your childhood, you'll have a fistful riot of summer drooling and adventurous mystery solving.
