The Complete Calvin And Hobbes (Hardcover)
Watterson's imaginative approach to his material and his inventive graphics have made Calvin and Hobbes one of the few universally admired by other cartoonists." --Charles Solomon, Los Angeles Times Book Review
Calvin and Hobbes is unquestionably one of the most popular comic strips of all time. The imaginative world of a boy and his real-only-to-him tiger was first syndicated in 1985 and appeared in more than 2,400 newspapers when Bill Watterson retired on January 1, 1996. The entire body of Calvin and Hobbes cartoons published in a truly noteworthy tribute to this singular cartoon in The Complete Calvin and Hobbes. Composed of three hardcover, four-color volumes in a sturdy slipcase, this edition includes all Calvin and Hobbes cartoons that ever appeared in syndication. This is the treasure that all Calvin and Hobbes fans seek.

My husband is a big fan of Calvin and Hobbs and loves this collection. We both pick it up and read parts of it just for some good laughs. Even visitors to our home like to browse the books. Great buy!Read More
The book is, of course, wonderful. This review is about service and condition. It arrived in plenty of time for Christmas givng, and without a blemish.Read More

I bought this for my son (age 27), as he grew up with these cartoons and loved them. He had the set on his list for Christmas and after searching for these-- I found it on Overstock. He loved it! What a great trip through memory lane it was for us both. PS, I have now put this on my own Xmas list for next year.Read More
I had long wanted this collection but couldn't justify the price for something so seemingly silly. Found Overstock's lower price and had a discount code so I jumped on it. The slipcase was trashed! It was gouged and ripped and will soon be unserviceable as it gets worse any time a book is removed. I've tried to tape it to prevent this but it's a losing battle. The set looks as if it came from a used book seller. I was so disappointed. The books have something on the covers which may be mold or mildew. It doesn't wipe off. This particular item a huge disappointment for me. The only positive is that it's Calvin and Hobbes!! I wish Overstock had been a little more honest about the shape the collection would arrive in but perhaps mine is an aberration and they're not all like that. If so, I take exception with Overstock sending out something in that kind of shape.Read More
I bought this set as a gift for my husband. It arrived in perfect condition, and we are both enjoying it. Be aware, though, that this is the complete set of NEWSPAPER comics, not the books.Read More
I admit a previous review gave me alot of concern. Given Overstock's return policy I thought I would give a it try anyway. My set was in mint condition with the sleeve also wrapped in shrink wrap. The books are huge and beautiful. The picture does not give it justice.Read More
I purchased this for my husband and he loves it! His only concern is that the books are glued together instead of sewn, so the pages can come out easier. However, it has all of the comic books, and is in a larger print, making it easier to read. I would have liked more information about the quality of the product. The pages look great and will hopefully stay that way. It was also great that it came as quickly as it did. Overstock really was the cheapest too.Read More
Over all it was a great value. There was some damage to the books, but I guess that's why I got such a good price.?.Read More
