"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."

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.

Love it! Big fan of Calvin & Hobbes - I read some reviews of people complaining about the binding. I'm going to just be as gentle with the books as possible. It's well worth it.Published 4 days ago by Dwight Peters

The Books themselves aren't of the greatest construction and the box design leaves a lot to be desired (not only aesthetically, but practically - you sometimes have to tilt the... Read morePublished 6 days ago by Juan Diaz de Lindo
