Fans of the adventures of the playfully anarchic and exceptionally imaginative Calvin and his partner in crime, the stuffed tiger Hobbes, will thrill to this complete collection of the daily newspaper strip, published from 1985 to 1995. The three-volume set also includes an introduction from strip creator Bill Watterson, giving readers a rare personal look at a man who has tended to shun interviews.
"By the 1980s the once glorious newspaper comics section had become a wasteland, ravaged by shrinking space, editorial timidity and other ills....Bill Watterson...marched directly in the wasteland and made the comatose syndicated strip form kick up its heels and dance....These books offer a testament to Watterson's dedication and to the medium's ability to keep reinventing itself against all odds." (starred review) - Art Spiegelman 08/22/2005 "[A] treasury of 10 transcendent years in three beautiful, bricklike volumes....For all of his mischief, Watterson came as close as any artist, in any medium, to achieving a kind of American Zen....[Grade:] A." - Scott Brown 10/07/2005
I can't believe how beautiful this collection is. Bill Watterson's wonderfully thoughtful comic strip has finally been given the treatment that it truly deserves. The construction of the 3 volumes is magnificent and will really last for years and years. This is truely an easy buy for any Calvin and Hobbes fan.
