"Ive loved comic strips as long as I can remember. As a kid, I knew I wanted to be either a cartoonist or an astronaut. The latter was never much of a possibility, as I dont even like riding in elevators. I kept my options open until seventh grade, but when I stopped understanding math and science, my choice was made. There is great personal satisfaction in attending to detail and quality, and I remain very proud of the standards the strip met day after day. I also liked the responsibility of knowing that, succeed or fail, it was all my own doing. This approach kept the strip very honest and personal--everything having to do with Calvin and Hobbes expressed my own ideas, my own values, my own way. I wrote every word, drew every line, and painted every color. Its a rare gift to find such fulfilling work and I tried to show my appreciation by giving the strip everything I had to offer."

The set of books is stunningly beautiful.
This collection was definitely worth every penny, I just got it this month and I'm reading it a little at a time and loving every minute.
The three books are bound in very heavy cover stock and printed on gallery weight paper - making it a durable and high quality printing.
Calvin and Hobbes wasn't the comic strip of my childhood as I'm a bit older, but they were the comic strip that had me reading the newspaper comics section as a 20 to 30 year old. Read morePublished 11 hours ago by Richard

Great gift and was very much appreciated. Unfortunately it arrived with book 1, book 2, and two book 4's (no book 3). That was a bit of a let down upon opening birthday gift. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Firefly
