Join Calvin and Hobbes on all their adventures in this three-volume collection of every comic strip from the comic strip’s eleven year history (1985 to1996).

The imaginative world of a boy and his real-only-to-him tiger was first syndicated in 1985 and appeared in more than 2.

Now this book represents the complete work by Bill Watterson of his Calvin and Hobbes comics from November 18, 1985 to December 31, 1995 and as sad as the fact is that there will be no more you have to admire the fact they have survived so long and stayed so fresh to this day (and no doubt beyond). If ever you want something to life your heart and make you smile the comic adventures of Calvin and Hobbes must surely be considered. Near the end of the series Bill Watterson points to how Calvin might find common ground with adulthood; sometimes all it takes is to have an authority figure take you serious and give you a choice.

Something that other reviews don't seem to be saying: the issues with pages falling out seems to have been resolved.

The original problem was that the pages were glued together instead of sewn. THIS HAS BEEN CORRECTED with a subsequent printing. That being said, I would strongly recommend against purchasing a used copy of this set unless you've verified with the seller that the binding is SEWN binding.

A little background: being aware of the issues surrounding the glued binding, I did a little research on internet forums to see if the issue had been corrected. The only evidence I could find was one random poster on a random forum saying that they "thought" the issue had been corrected.

So I took matters into my own hands and called the publisher. It took forever to get through to them (the number seems to be intended for wholesalers looking to purchase in bulk), but the lady that helped me was able to call back and confirm that the binding is now sewn rather than glued. I asked when the most recent printing had been, and her (now undoubtedly out-of-date) answer gave me confidence that it was far enough back to reassure me that most retailers would have cleared out their stock of the first edition printing. Reassured by this (and Amazon's return policy), I went ahead and purchased after it went on sale. And I can now confirm: sewn binding.

As an aside, as others are saying, the collection is quite heavy—but I wouldn't say that the individual books are too heavy to read if you've propped the book against your legs, etc.

The quality of this collection is (finally) worthy of such a great and timeless comic strip. Calvin & Hobbes stands alone at the top of best comic strip of all time, and nothing else even comes close. Everyone can enjoy this strip, from young kids to adults (though adult fans likely won't want to let their kids touch the books lol)

I will keep this brief:

1) This has every weekday strip, weekend comic, and extra creation for the books that Bill Watterson ever created on "Calvin and Hobbes."
2) It is ordered and labeled chronologically.
3) I have the 5th edition. I expect this is in its 17th printing or so now. The hardcovers and slipcase are high quality. The pages are strong and durable, and the colors from the Sundays are very vibrant.
4) There is a short essay in the front of the first volume. After that, there are no comments.
5) If you are looking for Bill Watterson's comments on his work, you should go buy the 10th Anniversary book.

The ‘Hardcover - 3 volume edition’ is perfect! Beautiful art reproduction, quality paper and sewn binding! I just wanted to point it out, because I got the impression that the binding was only glued, but I guess that must refer to the ‘Softcover – 4 volume edition’. Also, the picture in front and back of the books are a part of the whole red cover, and not glued on, which other reviews mention. Highly recommended! :-)

Heavy, beautifully bound (pages are sewn, not glued) using quality paper in a protective slip case. Book one starts out with a lengthy, and very interesting, write up by the strip's author Bill Watterson. The printing is flawless and every page lists the date each strip appeared. If you are a veteran Calvin and Hobbies reader this will bring back hours of fond memories. If you are new to the strip you're in for a treat. I have absolutely no regrets buying these wonderful volumes. Thank you Mr. Watterson for a ton of great laughs and great memories.

Perhaps one of the best comic strips of all time, if not the best, and my personal favorite, the Complete Calvin and Hobbes gathers together the over 3,000 strips of Bill Watterson's creation into a three volume (four in paperback) collection printed on high quality paper. From the self titled first book to the final collection "It's a Magical World," it's all here in chronological order, with the original post dates included. The collection includes a great introduction by Watterson, describing his career, how he got into cartooning, and what he's been up to post Calvin and Hobbes. It's some of the most personal details he's ever given out publicly. The collection also includes all the artwork, poems and features from the treasury collections. The one thing I do wish they would have included were the three forewords that have been written by Gary Trudeau, Charles Schulz and Pat Oliphant for past collections, but it is what it is.

One of the best parts of this collection is how it's bounded. The older versions had the pages glued in, causing them to fall out. This one, the pages are sewn into the book. It's built for the long haul and should last many, many years.

This timeless comic is still funny after all these years and likely will stay that way. Pick it up today.

This is really a wonderful set and would definitely recommend it. And I would recommend them over the other compilation books. The books are great quality, pages are heavy and thick paper stock, and the colors are vibrant for the color comic strips. I also very much liked that in this set — unlike the other compilation books - - gives the dates on the bottom of each page when the comic was published. That may seem trivial, but the comics often spoke to issues of the day, seasons, holidays, etc so it was really neat to understand the context of some comics when you could see what time of the year they were published.

I bought this for my 10 year old daughter and she absolutely loves them. She read all the volumes every night for weeks. When she finished, she started over. These are, of course, comics written for adults so we also sat together many nights and read them together and I could explain some of the jokes, big words, context, etc to add to her experience. Most likely, kids under 10 might not get a lot of it — they would still enjoy them as they are comics — but at age 10 my daughter was able to start appeciating the nuance of the jokes better as well as laugh at how it teases children and adults. But to be clear, this is also a great gift for adults, especially those that came of age in the late 80s and early 90s.
