Calvin and Hobbes...


Well-known Member
I see that this forum has recently discussed comics so I thought I'd mention this collection of Calvin and Hobbes comic strips.

Click Me.

It's brilliant :) Apparently it has all the published strips in it. It's very heavy but looks great. I could also use this book in the 'most expensive book' thread as it cost me about £60, well, it cost the wife as she bought it for me as a wedding present :cool:

Are there any other C&H fans in here?

I am :D I have the book on my Amazon wishlist, but you have reminded me to add it to my iPad RSS feeder. :smashin:

I used to have all the big compilation books which I believed were safe at my Mum and Dads. Recently decided to try dig them all out and there is no sign of them anywhere :( I am 99% convinced they threw them out and either can't remember or "can't remember"

Love Calvin and Hobbs, I've had this collection for years now, still not managed to get through them all.

If you are wanting to buy it, I would look at either amazon uk or us over that link. Much cheaper, plus no VAT or relevant duties on imported books.

I love C&H. I was sad when he stopped doing them, but perhaps it was for the best. My collection is also in a loft "somewhere", all that paper weighs a lot!

If you live near a big book shop, it's worth having a look for it in there because I've seen it heavily reduced in a couple of shops in the past (which is a bit annoying, because I paid full price for it when it first came out). There's a similar compilation of all the Far Side cartoons as well, if anyone's interested.

Love the far side as well - I used to have the yearly one a day calendars and have a few of the collated large sized compilations :smashin:

One thing I'd like is a collection of The Addams Family cartoons, I'd buy them in a shot.
