I ordered this set along with "Calvin and Hobbes" and picking this collection up alone felt like lifting a young child. It's a terrific set that contains everything you'd want as well as a peculiar introduction, insight into the history of Larson and his strip, and of course the cartoons themselves, ALL OF THEM! I was worried when the delivery arrived as the deliverer honked and I saw a huge box in the back of the car. Lifting it was a chore since it arrived packaged with the "Calvin and Hobbes" box set. They weren't very secure in the box and were sliding around in the package. The box nearly broke apart when I picked it up. That would be my only complaint, the flimsy way Overstock shipped the items. I'm surprised they arrived without any damage. But they were perfect. Make sure you've got a table to set the volumes on while reading as your lap and arms will get tired if you choose to just sit and flip through it for any extended amount of time. An excellent purchase.
