Calvin a jeho plyšový tygr Hobbes jsou zpátky. Jejich plány a cíle jsou obrovské, ale v cestě jim stojí spousta překážek. Učitelé, rodiče, Susie Derkinová, mutanti pod postelí, špatně fungující stroje času, transmutační pistole a pak hlavně ta obtížná, otravná věc zvaná realita. Ale s pomocí tygra a fantazie se dá pokořit i ta.

It can be really difficult to critique a work like this. Calvin and Hobbes stands as perhaps the greatest strip ever, along with grandpappy Peanuts and the bizarrely inimitable Little Nemo. Of course, as a child, I never knew that Calvin was a man who thought heaven was a lottery or that Hobbes was the father of rational political philosophy. However, truly great children's literature should never be inaccessible to adults. If it is, then its popularity amongst children stems merely from its abi ...more

The third Calvin & Hobbes collection features the debut of STUPENDOUS MAN and the sole appearance of Calvin's Uncle Max. I was always a bit sad that Watterson never used that character again - he has hints of a highly entertaining backstory - but that would mean a surname for the family and given names for Calvin's parents. Watterson considered their anonymity a large contributing factor to their mundane mystique.

In this volume, Watterson mostly abandons trying to incorporate the Sunday str

This is my favorite Calvin & Hobbes, which goes without saying that it is also my all-time-favorite comic book.

Calvin noting in his travel log: "Journey to the Yukon: Day one. Have traveled twenty minutes. No snow so far."
Hobbes suggests adding: "Food supplies low." [while eating the first of 2 sandwiches packed for the journey]
Calvin: "Nevertheless, morale is high as we push north."
Hobbes: MY morale would be a lot higher if YOU'D carry the toboggan [sparking a tussle over the "commander hat." T

Probably one of the finest comic strips ever, Calvin and Hobbes is iconic and when Watterson decided to retire the characters, there were millions of people (me included) who grieved. So we read all the books over and over and they seem fresh every time! Calvin and his tiger buddy are doing their best in this entry of the series, to drive his parents, Miss Wormwood (his teacher), and Susie (his female nemesis) over the edge and as usual, almost succeeding. So clever, endearing, and funny that I ...more

Every Calvin and Hobbes comic is a treat and they are all so well done. The details and simplicity that go concurrently into Calvin's drawings alone are just magnificent. It's a quick, but humour-filled ride and not two comics are alike! ...more

I remember Calvin & Hobbes being funnier and more enjoyable to read than it is actually is.
PurplyCookie
Calvin is the hero of all children with wildly vivid imaginations. He has great fun with his stuffed tiger Hobbes, going on numerous great adventures, including an attempted trip to the Yukon. Calvin is fairly typical in the sense that such children tend to drive their parents and teachers crazy, yet when they learn to temper and channel their imagination, they often end up doing spectacularly creative things as adults.

From the beginning of the book where Calvin is convinced that he and Hobbes

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.

Calvin and Hobbes has a way of worming itself into your life when you most need it. I was having a stressful and anxiety-inducing week at work when I found this gem at the bottom of a box of books sent to my ship. Rereading these strips, which I've read throughout many points in my life, nourishes the soul. I am continually surprised at the tenderness, imagination, and intelligence of these strips that still manage to appeal to so many.

Life-affirming and gorgeous. How many books that contain th

This was the first Calvin and Hobbes book I read. A teacher let me borrow her son's copy when I was going through a phase of not reading anymore, and I devoured it quickly. The wit is spot-on, and it encouraged me to hunt down every other collection! I love Calvin and Hobbes as a team and as best friends, even though both are just different sides of Calvin and his different perspectives of the world. They compliment each other exceptionally well and their dialogue gives a refreshing escape to ch ...more

Calvin and Hobbes. Dream team.

I finally figured out why I do not like this strip. I've known for a long time that Bill Watterson is a talented and imaginative guy, a fairly good writer and a fairly good artist (in the terms that Charles M. Schulz used to describe what cartoonists do), but I did not like CALVIN AND HOBBS. I thought one reason was that Mr. Watterson did not stay true to his premise, and he doesn't, but giving himself that freedom allowed him to take the continuity to imaginative places that paid off in other w ...more

When I was working in any of the many bookstores where I was employed and I did not want (or have the time) to read my current book, I would grab one of these collections to read on my too short break. I slowly but surely worked my way through several series. These are great time killers and will usually improve your mood no matter how hectic the day. Laughter can be the best solution to dealing with the public.

A lot of people think Calvin is a brat. I don't believe that. It is true that he woul

Collecting cartoons originally published between May 1987 and February 1988, this is another fantastic Calvin & Hobbes collection from Bill Watterson and it’s a real treat to read. Full of great strips and imagery, my highlights include fishing with rocks, a water balloon fight with Susie (that, typically, goes very badly for Calvin), a trip to the doctors, the time machine, waking up early for Santa, Uncle Max and pampering by “mom”. There are two longer arcs, both of which work superbly. The f ...more

Here we have the last of the Calvin and Hobbes books from my youth. At least, the last that I owned in my youth.

What more can I say about Calvin and Hobbes? It remains my favorite comic strip of all time. Watterson was amazing. He created a strip that could literally go just about anywhere, solely using the power of Calvin's imagination. Bill feel like drawing dinosaurs that week? Calvin invents a time machine (which we see its maiden voyage in this collection). Feeling the need for a little sci

DEFINITELY my favorite Calvin and Hobbes collection so far.

The title storyline "Yukon Ho!" was wonderful and cute. We see how reality and fantasy intermingle in Calvin's mind in a way that past strips didn't explore.

And there was a Christmas storyline closer to the end that was amazing. Calvin asks questions about Santa and then the story subverts it in such a way that we realize Santa is a metaphor for God and the Christmas presents represent heavenly reward. I loved it and I love how Pascal's

One of the finest - if not the finest - newspaper strips in the last 40 years begins here, with this third collection of the entire Calvin & Hobbes run. Each of these collections gathers a year's worth of the strip, in which we follow six-year-old Calvin and his tiger companion Hobbes as they take us on a guided tour through youthful imagination, adventure, misbehavior, parents, bullies, teachers, babysitters, artistic expression, crushing on Susie Derkins, and 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
