My husband asked for this collection and it has been a big hit. He uses his mind for high level work all day everyday and this is a great diversion for him to sit and relax for a few minutes. He has started with the first volume and working his way to the end. I'm sure he will start over when finished.
Got this item for my husband who loves Calvin & Hobbes as a gift. It was exactly what I wanted. He absolutely loves the set. Not to mention that the price was way lower than anything I've seen for this same box set. It came brand new and still wrapped. For the Calvin & Hobbes fan, it's the ultimate collection. It also has a lot of the history of the strip and how it evolved in the beginning of the volumes, which is really interesting. I was very happy with the product & service that I received from Overstock.com

I bought this as a gift for my son. I looked everywhere, including bidding on a number of sets on Ebay. This was BY FAR the lowest price for this set. It came with the wrapping in tact and I got it very quickly. BEWARE the box is REALLY heavy.
I LOVE THIS COLLECTION!!!! It is a must for true fans who miss their daily dose of Calvin and Hobbes. Well worth the price and the wait. I hesitated to order after reading several reviews that discussed damage to the set during shipping, but decided to anyway. The box (stuffed only with paper) was literally destroyed, and there were a number of stickers indicating that it had "arrived damaged" to our local Post Office. Somehow, despite the inside plastic being torn, the set is in beautiful condition!
Our order was processed and shipped in a most timely manner, notwithstanding the fact that it was in the heart of the "Christmas Rush". Our friends received their gift in time for Christmas, and we received the gift of quality merchandise at a GREAT price -- with $2.95 shipping. THANK YOU, Overstock.com !!!
I purchased this set for my 11 year old nephew who just loves Calvin and Hobbes. Since the author retired well before my nephew started reading Calvin and Hobbes, this set is the perfect all-in combo to get your fill of the comics without trying to figure out which of the individual books you may already own.
We purchased this set as a reward for our son when he got great grades. He's a huge C and H fan. My father-in-law was visiting and he loved the set, so we purchased one for him for Xmas. It's a really well made set and so fun to read. Anyone who is a fan (or even isn't!) will love this complete set.
This is an excellent and very heavy collection. The packaging and presentation is nice and clean, it contains every "C and H" cartoon plus the extras including poems and stories, and a history of Waterson, how he got started and how he ended up writing the wonderful "Calvin and Hobbes". It's easily one of the nicest collections of it's kind that I've seen and the it's worth every cent. The only complaint would be the box Overstock sent it in. It was packaged with the Gary Larson set, very very heavy together, in a flimsy box that nearly broke apart when I picked it up out of the back of the mail driver's vehicle. I'm surprised the sets weren't damaged as they were sliding around and very awkward because they were so loosely packaged and there was so little packaging material. But they did arrived unharmed. Keep in mind they are very heavy to hold for any length of time. You might want to have a reading table available when you start. This set comes highly recommended.
Nothing better than having ALL the "Far side" humor in your library. The books are way to heavy, I wish they were 4 instead of two or a lighter paper. Because I take the book before to bed. It makes me wake up in a good humor the next day.
