Kdo tvrdil, že do třetice všeho nejlepšího, ten nečetl čtvrtou knihu Calvina a Hobbese, zasvěcenou tentokrát letům do vesmíru, mimozemských zrůdám a jiným členům učitelského sboru. To ale není všechno. Na Calvina a jeho (podle nesmyslného mínění ostatních plyšového) tygra se řítí to největší nebezpečí ze všech: ďábelská Rosalyn, holka na hlídání. Ale atypická dvojice slože ...more

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us. ~ Calvin
Calvin's wit keeps amazing me. I'm glad I get the funny points . . . while not having him right in my household.
Being a tiger is more than just stripes, you realize. ~ Hobbes

Recommends it for: anyone who needs a good laugh!
Some of my favorite ones:

Somebody filled my sandbox with quicksand! I'm sinking fast! ACK! RRGHH!
Susie: Oh, right. Give me a break.
Calvin: Your gender would be a lot more tolerable if it wasn't so darn cynical!


Calvin: Boy, what a beautiful summer morning, huh, Dad? Too bad you can't stay home to enjoy it.
When you're old, you'll be sorry you never took advantage of days like these, but of course,
I can always depend on Calvin and Hobbes to lighten the mood and provide lots of laughs. Weirdos From Another Planet! is one of the many books in my Calvin and Hobbes collection. I really should read them more often. Calvin is a wonderful mix of an incredibly intelligent six-year-old boy who can ask about the meaning of life and yet still enjoy hours of cartoons on tv while eating his favorite cereal, Sugar-Coated Chocolate Bombs. Hobbes, his constant companion, sometimes tries to steer Calvin t ...more

This is my first copy of Calvin and Hobbes comics as a book and I am thoroughly thrilled to have my hands lay on it. I have always been an ardent lover of Bill Watterson's creativity, passion and beautiful sense of values which has taught(still teaching) the wonder beneath the quotidian life.

This book is a valued possession which I know that I would cherish for a lifetime(and perhaps add it in my Will and pass it on to the next generations to come).

Ever read the comic in pullout section of the newspaper? If you did, then Calvin and Hobbes will not be total strangers to you. The humorous comic which ran in boxes of four or sometimes luxuriously filling up half of the page had been featured in most comic sections for as far as I can read, and had been the company of most readers of newspaper. There are a few compilations of Calvin and Hobbes comi
Calvin is one kid that no one would ever want to try to raise, and Hobbes is one (stuffed) tiger that no one would ever want to mess with. But these two always have their fun, and they sure do have a hell of a lot of adventures (mostly with Calvin's parents): camping, going to the zoo, digging for dinosaur bones, going to Mars, being lifted up in the stratosphere by a balloon, fixing the bathroom sink among others. The list is always endless with this duo. There are tons of philosophical, satiri ...more

Oh no, I only have one more book left after this in my stash of Calvin & Hobbes books - I want more!

I just read that a book set has just been published that contains 4 paperbacks that contain every C&H strip ever syndicated:The Complete Calvin and Hobbes. It seems that Bill Watterson said everything that he needed to say on the subject by the mid 90s so guess what - if anybody wants to buy me an early Xmas present - they are more than welcome to buy me this. In fact, this'll do for the next 4 Xm

As similar to my review of the previous Calvin and Hobbes (seen here:, there were several instances of food-related humour it could do without. Surprisingly, the parents' reception to Calvin's behaviour was less implicitly violent and more of the type of "Family Jokes" that annoy me to the point of cringing. Preferable to the "Threats Joke" that was prevalent in "It's a Magical World."

The cover is wonderful, and immediately drew me in-to read through it, as it's been a whil
Which of us are weirdos from another planet? Well that depends on which side of the rock you're on.

I wish Calvin and Hobbes had managed to establish a dialog with the Martians. They might have had some solutions for the problems that face us.

As usual with these smaller collections, the Sunday strips are not in color, and they lose out thereby. But once again, there are unique drawings on the endpages and covers.

This was one of the few Calvin and Hobbes books I didn't have as a child, and I bought it (among many other books) to give away as a wedding favor. So I read it first. I'll try to make sure Iggy gets it! He loves Calvin and Hobbes! And he'll probably grow up to have a big vocabulary like I did thanks to these comics.

Here are two more things I love about about Calvin and Hobbes. Everyone thinks Hobbes is a stuffed animal! That funny. Also that nobody believes Calvin and Hobbes when they go on a wacky adventure such as - like in this book - going to Mars.

This was the first Calvin and Hobbes book I found and since then they have inspired me to buy almost every book in the seres. the funnest comics to read are when it's all in Calvin's mind. I love these books because they've always given me laughter over the years. ...more

This book is amazing! I like this book because it has a lot of little stories in comic book form. This book is about a little kid named Calvin and his plush toy Hobbes. I recommend this book who like comic books.

When it comes to extraterrestrial activities, Calvin is up for the challenge. To feel an out of the world experience, go for it.

"Hi I'm wondering if you sell kegs of dynamite." I love this quote because it shows how imaginative Calvin is and how funny he is.

I love Hobbes because he is so civil and normal. Calvin is not normal and even though Hobbes is a form of Calvin's imagination, they are so different. I love how Hobbes thinks tigers are the best.

A theme i noticed in the book was just how rough life can be sometimes. Calvin recognizes life situations more then the normal 6 year old and he realizes how tough it can be

Spending an ordinary Saturday afternoon with Calvin and Hobbes on Weirdos from Another Planet. What I really loved about this comic strip collection is you could have ongoing intellectual stimulation through daily conversations among the characters. And sometimes it touched the core essence about life and daily struggle too.

This is I quoted from Calvin's journey to the planet Mars:

"When you see earth as a tiny blue speck in infinite reaches of space, you have to wonder about the mystery of creat

My giggle-filled journey continues through these wonderful collections. There is so much to love. Here are some examples.

I love:
- When Hobbes tries to teach Calvin how to be a tiger.
- The return of the Dad polls.
- Calvin's brief stint as a paleontologist.
- When Calvin breaks his dad's binoculars.
- The family's second camping trip (during which it did not rain the entire time).
- When Calvin floats away with his helium balloon, subsequently popping it in midair and saving himself with his transmog

One of the finest - if not the finest - newspaper strips in the last 40 years begins here, with this fourth 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. We all know how this strip ...more

Published in 1990, this collection of Watterson’s comics from 1988 feature the rambunctious six-year-old Calvin and his beloved tiger Hobbes as they explore the outer limits of their imaginations, well at least Calvin’s with his stuffed animal in tow. In this collection, the duo go camping, try to outwit Rosalyn the babysitter, and even set course for Mars in a little red wagon while often musing about human nature. Poignant and philosophical, reading this collection again for the first time in ...more

Exceptional writer and amazing cartoons with such a deep meaning and thinking structure for a comic strip.

Reading these really does take me back to being a kid again, relating and/or being horrified with Calvin's actions and thought process. But every strip is excellent, and having them consolidated and following through longer story arcs is just magical. I know all of these books will be 5 stars, because they each have something unique to offer, using just a few characters and the imagination o

Back with a bang to Calvin! Though not as enjoyable as the first three books, this is still a worthwhile read. Calvin is as crazy as ever. And the highlight story, that of his journey to Mars, really stands out in its hilarity.

Fun collection of Calvin & Hobbes from around 1988. I love the strips where Calvin is sharing his dad's "poll results," to see whether or not the dad can survive another "term" in Fatherhood. (Very fitting for 1988, too, as it was an election year). This is also the era when STUPENDOUS MAN is born, which becomes a stock Calvin motif throughout the duration of the comics. ...more
