Probably my favorite of the Calvin and Hobbes collections, with some of the most memorable stories.

May not be great literature, but Bill Watterson sees something which most of us don't. My life has been diminished by not having the joy of opening the daily paper to some new insight to ourselves through his eyes.

Best comic strip ever, period.

I love Calvin and Hobbes...
Watterson has a great sense of ironic humor. Calvin is the most contradicting 6-year-old that ever lived. On one hand he's this:

or this:

and then he's extremely intelligent on the other hand, and sometimes I don't even understand him.

point taken???

Calvin doesn't care much for interaction with other students at his school and instead conversates with his best friend, a stuffed tiger named Hobbes. Their always making smart remarks and doing creatively stupid

The land is dark
The world in night
There's a creature
It starts a fight!

Mercy, mercy! the victim cries
Growls and grunts are its replies

Scrapes and scratches nearly bring the victim to his doom
His cries can't be heard all the way from his room

The door opens and the commotion stops
The victim gasps for breath and coughs

He wished that he had had a bat
To fight to Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat!

Yet another among the books published by Bill Watterson from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip that I have enjoyed. My children have literally worn out these collections of C&H comics, and with good reason. C&H is a unique blend of homespun philosophy, side-splitting humor, and insight into the human (child and adult) condition. Watterson's insights into, and sly digs at, various social, familial, and other institutions of modern life are masterful.
Fall in love all over again ! :)

I love this comic strip. It's consistently entertaining. Calvin has to deal with coded letters, being good enough to get presents from Santa, new year's resolutions, tests in school, traffic safety posters, eating worms for money, tricking Susie with a coded message and other existential issues. It's nice that he has time to be academic about it.

Words once again fail me here... Are we even good enough to review a Calvn and Hobbes book? Should mortals attempt to? The stories by Bill Watterson amaze me every single time. I am sure that if it comes down to a verbal duel, I would miserably fail against Calvin. I would simply have to stand back and probably bow in respect to the kid's understanding of the world. For those who have never read a Calvin and Hobbes book ever in their lives, my sympathies are with you! For those who actually have ...more

I ♥ Calvin & Hobbes
I fumetti di Calvin & Hobbes sono veramente mitici… hanno la capacità di farmi ridere per giorni, solo ripensando a qualche vignetta. La storia è quella di Calvin, bambino vivace, pieno di idee, entusiasmo, sarcasmo e fantasia. In perenne ricerca di un modo per non andare a scuola e convincere i suoi genitori a fargli fare quello che vuole. Hobbes è il suo tigrotto di peluche che, miracolosamente, quando non ci sono adulti nei paraggi, prende vita e diventa il suo inse

I loved Calvin and Hobbes when I was young. I think it might be even better in my 30s with three kids.

When I am sick I often read comics or light manga. The other day I grabbed this book off the shelf because it is always so much fun. As I was rereading I was struck by how much my understanding of and sympathies with the characters have changed since I first started reading Calvin and Hobbes as a little girl. Back then, naturally, I saw Calvin and Susie as myself and the kids in my class, and felt so sorry for Calvin as his parents force him to do chores when he just wants to play.

Recently re-read this stand alone Calvin and Hobbes Collection and I love it so much, If you've never read Calvin and Hobbes before I highly suggest you give any of the collections a try. My wife got me the complete collection a few Christmases ago and I've been making my way slowly through that as well. Arguably the best comic of all time.

Not just witty and amusing, but profound and insightful.
