Calvin and Hobbes was so important to me when I was younger, and still is important. It really is in its own little catergory. It breaks my heart that Watterson left after this book... but in an understanding way. It is so rare that someone knows how to retire while they are at their peak and let their art stand on its own.

I have this last strip in this book pinned up on my wall at work... to remind me as I came here and started over, that it's a magical world out there.

Calvin: "I read this library book you got me"
Calvin's Mom: "What did you think of it?"
Calvin: "It really made me see things differently. It's given me a lot to think about"
Calvin's Mom: "I'm glad you enjoyed it"
Calvin: "It's complicating my life. Don't get me any more"

UGGGHHH I'm about to vomit with love.
Yet another among the books published by Bill Watterson from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip that I have enjoyed. This one is from the beginning of the C&H comic strip, and I own a framed print of that first strip. When Calvin tells Hobbes, "It's a magical world...lets go exploring,", it speaks powerfully to me on several levels. That print hangs in my office, and has become a reminder to me of the importance of discovering what I don't yet know, of the need to ask important questions and...more
I was about 12 when the "It's a magical world" strip ran in my local paper. I cut it out and glued it in my scrapbook and then cried. That said, I have learned more interesting vocabulary from Calvin and Hobbes than I think I have from most of my other favorite authors combined.
"Calvin, it's okay. It's okay! Trust me!"
"WHAT? I'm your father!"
"You've only known me six years! Come back when i'm forty, THEN we'll talk about trust!"

... In. Hysterics.

Hi I read this book because I've read other books from this series and they were really funny and that is also the reason why I gave this book 5 stars. My favorite character is Calvin becuase he's always saying doing stuff and doing stuff that's very funny but usually gets him in trouble. My favorite comic strip is when Calvin says he's a man of many words but his stuffed tiger who Calvin thinks can talk, Hobbes says something very funny and kept me laughing but you have to read the book to find...more

That was the last Calvin and Hobbes?!?!
I am a child of the new century, and I never saw Calvin and Hobbes in the newspaper. I wish I could have, though. My grandfather introduced me to Calvin and Hobbes, and I loved it. I have four books sitting on my dresser in my room that get read every night. It inspired me to write my own comic, although it doesn't even compare to Bill Waterson's. I wish he could teach me how to draw a comic so Calvin and Hobbes won't become lost in the rush of our now tech...more

While I have a great appreciation for what Gary Larson accomplished comedically in a singular panel, Calvin and Hobbes is far and away the greatest traditional (we will leave Marvel and Dc out of this) comic ever created. C & H reminds me distinctly of the Simpsons(seasons 3-10, all other seasons are an embarrassment to the franchise and FOX should issue a formal apology)-it could be enjoyed equally on different levels and that enjoyment consistently evolved over time. My father and I, when...more
Why is it that whenever I'm feeling a little low, all I have to do is pull one of the Calvin & Hobbes books from the shelf and give it a good re-read to perk me up. I've many other "funny-books", but these are the ones that bring me most joy.
Then, a little after I am done, I start re-realizing that Watterson will probably never do any more, then I get sad again.
I'm very grateful for what I have... and I'll re-read them as many times as I need... I just wish there were more.
OK, now I'm feelin...more

I love anything Bill Watterson pulls out. His jabs at capitalism always make me step back and examine my life and resolve to live it better. Thanks, Bill. Thank you for Hobbes. Thank you for making Calvin's dad an attorney so I have someone to relate to in this strip. Thank you for making a comic that inspired "Fight Club" as basically a When-They're-Older adaptation. So wonderful. There will never be another comic strip like Calvin and Hobbes.
I read it the other day and have to say it was full of a whole bunch of comics that were hilarious!! I'm suprised that there were some I haven't read yet, and I've read almost every calvin and hobbes book and I now own every one so far, that I know of. It was really funny and I'm probably going to read it again because some of them I didn't read all of it.
Calvin is like Peter Pan, the little boy immune to growing up, and his childish wisdom is (usually) better than the philosphies of educated adults.
Hobbes is amazing.
Calvin's ego and undeterred self-assurance and overall optimism are things we can all learn from, though not to quite the extreme he sometimes takes them!
Ben Brackett
At first a little slow, but quickly recaptures that magic that clearly put this as a transcendental piece of art that represents not just the best of serial comic strips but storytelling and entertainment across any medium as a whole. The last C&H comic always makes me cry.
Calvin and Hobbes books are great fun and really witty humor! A childhood staple comic book for me, but even now I go back and read them and understand the humor on a different level (now that I know the meanings of some of the words!). Great books.
My review for all Calvin and Hobbes books is this:

When you need to relax and laugh, this is a great place to go. Watterson is insightful, hilarious, and very, very funny. Highly recommended.

I grew up on C&H, and I'm very glad I did.
Even if I didn't suffer like the others fans of these fantastic series of comics mostly because I was born in 1997 and the comics only reached my country in 2004. When I discovered that there wont be any new ones I putted myself to cry. When I had this book after many years I jut said to myself "well... There we are right?" And took the hole day to read the book, slowly, crying again when I finished. I will always have these comics inside my heart and never will forget all the lessons that I lea...more
I just LOVE Calvin and can't get enough of him! And everytime I (re)read one of his comic strips, I thank the gods I'm not his mother, LOL!
I absolutely love Calvin and Hobbes. This is one of the best comic strips ever written. Calvin and Hobbes will make you laugh every time.
Loved it, and believe it or not, i teared when i realised i was reading the last ever strip.
Mary Taitt
I love Calvin and Hobbs, I just laugh and laugh. It's funny and intelligent.
This book highlights the final strips of the Calvin and Hobbes series up until their famous "Let's go exploring!" strip. To be honest, ten years to some people may have not seemed long enough, after seeing similar strips such as Peanuts or Garfield, who have lasted at least 35 years each. Yet Calvin and Hobbes was not short-lived, so it almost seemed appropriate that the strip ended in 1995. People have missed Calvin and Hobbes, but books like this revitalize the feeling that once was felt in ne...more
Review Taken from The Pewter Wolf

One boy and his toy tiger trying to make sense of the world around. Make sense with moral and ethical questions about life, growing up, friendship and bigger questions such as avoiding bathtime, eating vegetables and turning any game in Calvinball.

This is a collection of comic strips, which was published in newspapers all over the world (with Sunday's edition being in colour) and I LOVED them. I smiled, snorted, laughed and related to my life most of the situatio...more
I didn't realize this contained the last strip. I suppose it could then be considered perfect, in the sense that it's over with.

But in another sense, no cartoon is over with, because it continues having effects, even after it's forgotten by most. Who now remembers first-run strips of Little Nemo in Slumberland, or the Kazenjammer Kids? But there are still collections of them about, and just the other day I heard somebody reflexively referring to 'little Nemo' when referring to 'Finding Nemo'.

I adore Calvin and Hobbes! Bill Watterson is brilliant, insightful, clever, and perceptive. Although I'm not taking the time to add all of his comic books to my Goodreads "Read" list---rating them individually with five stars---just assume I have and would.

The only other comic strip I read with a similar level of enthusiasm and enjoyment is Foxtrot (by Bill Amend).

I have always loved Calvin and Hobbes! A great comic about a boy named Calvin and his imaginary friend, Hobbes, who is a stuffed animal. They were always going on misadventures and getting into mischief! My aunt collected these comic books when she was in high school and I would always read them when I stayed over at my nana and papa's!

calvin and hobbes is nothing short of amazing. read these as a kid and re-read this one after watching the documentary on netflix. absolutely brilliant, every child should be given these comics to read.

This is the final Calvin and Hobbes collection. Well, final in the sense of the original volumes collecting all of the strips. There are a number of other collections out there and I haven't a clue which was published most recently. This is the last one I felt compelled to buy to complete my collection. Anyway, it's quite an amusing book, as one might expect. The highlight of the book, in my mind, is the final storyline featuring Rosalyn, the babysitter. Watterson broke the shtick in a way that...more
well, I first "read" this C&H installment (amongst the many on my shelf) a long time ago when it was fresh and I was younger. But the past two days I've had the flu and was looking for something diverting that was non-taxing on my brain that would also pep me up. C&H is the best comic strip ever (maybe except for the Far Side, which is really less of a "strip" per se), and this book hits all the C&H high points -- the wonderfulness of snow, bicycles, and aliens who promise to give yo...more

Recommended to Éamon by: Boyfriend
I truly enjoy much of Calvin and Hobbes. There was a time I lost interest because I read so much I found the patterns in his humour - but that was before I could appreciate the consistent styles of different comedians and artists. Now, I find it wonderful and charming, but it could seriously do without the repetition of food-based humour. I also find the mother's infrequent exaggerations of punishment to be unnecessarily violent. Finally, I always find it hard to follow along with short comic st...more

Bill Watterson (born William Boyd Watterson II) is an American cartoonist, and the author of the comic strip "Calvin and Hobbes". His career as a syndicated cartoonist ran from 1985 to 1995; he stopped drawing "Calvin and Hobbes" at the end of 1995 with a short statement to newspaper editors and his fans that he felt he had achieved all he could in the comic strip medium. During the early years of...more
