"Isn't it strange that evolution would give us a sense of humor?"

"You know, Hobbes, sometimes even my lucky rocketship underpants don't help."

"There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want."

My boyfriend checked this book, which is a catalog that accompanied a 2001/2002 Bill Watterson show at The Ohio State University Cartoon Research Library, out of the library and thought it'd be fun to read together. I think he was a little surprised that I didn't have a strong connection to Calvin and Hobbes from my childhood. I don't know: I read the Sunday comics at my grandparents' house, including Calvin and Hobbes, but Calvin was such a boy, and so active, and I was a girl, and bookish, and ...more

Do I cry that I'll never see another original Calvin & Hobbes cartoon or do I rejoice that I own this book and others? I'll go with rejoice. What makes this collection special is that it's the catalog for an exhibit of some of Watterson's Sunday Pages. Each comic is shown with the original black and white sketch on the left and the full color strip on the right. Most include comments from the cartoonist as to why he chose the specific strip for the exhibit. As I read each strip I found mysel ...more

I miss Calvin & Hobbes.

This was an interesting perspective on the strip, focusing on the art more than the stories.

It's always interesting to gain insight into the creative process. (well, maybe not always!)
I think I sent a copy of this book to Cassidy. Of course, he really likes Calvin and Hobbes.

I prefer the strips that are not crazy dinosaurs on the planet Zoirbsky sequences, so the Calvin and Hobbes Sunday strips are some of my least favorite.

Jos jedna kolekcija koja je zabavna za citanje zbog komentara samog autora posto su slike vec sve poznate.

Había leído a Calvin y Hobbes cuando salían en el suplemento dominical de El País o de El Mundo, lo verdad es que no recuerdo cuál de ellos era. Siempre me gustó y regalé este tomo hace tiempo tras verlo por encima. Ahora me lo han regalado a mí.
Se lee en una sentada, es una recopilación para una exposición que luego se ha editado como libro. Incluye el original sin colorear y en inglés y luego la versión final coloreada y en español. Igualmente, muchas de las tiras incluyen una pequeña reseña

Well, the Sunday strips were some of the best, so a book full of 'em is bound to be awesome! And it is! I enjoyed the introduction by Watterson and his comments on each entry in here! It's also super cool to see the rough draft on the left page and the final draft on the right - for each one! And even though it pulls at my heart, I was glad to see the last cartoon included in this collection. Sniff, sniff. Love me some C&H!

It's a catalogue book wherein the author made personal curating for each selection comic strip Calvin and Hobbes since 1985 to 1995. But I found delightful messages on it. Especially when the author believes that we can talk about things without reducing them to one liners right away.

My favorite part conversation is when Hobbes says, "I suppose if we couldn't laugh at things that don't make sense, we couldn't react to a lot of life."

Such virtue.
