Loved Calvin and Hobbes growing and had to have this.

I looked for a while and decided it was worth it just by a new one instead of used.

What can one say. C&H is the best strip ever produced... and this is a absolutely beautiful collection... the entire works in three large volumes.

I was actually surprised at the size of each book... you could barricade yourself in your home with them... well, not quite, but you get the idea.

Gift your old C&H books to a deserving (or not so deserving) child, and keep this collection for yourself.

If you like Calvin and Hobbes, you need this set. Every single strip in the entire series sorted by publishing date. Heavy stock paper, excellent color. Easy to see the transition of the characters over the life of the strip---no more "best of" books to go through. Item was new and factory sealed as listed. Shipping was quick. A no problem transaction. An yes it really weighs 22 pounds!

I just got mine and wow didn't expect it to this massive. I think it's about 10kg's but its brilliant. The books are absolutely gorgeous and the introduction is written by Bill Watterson himself. So if you are a fan of Calvin and Hobbes or if you are just a fan of owning stunning books for your bookshelf this one is a must! Sturdy books, excellent quality paper.

If you're a fan, or trying to get someone to be a fan, this is the set you get. I love this. It's all set chronologically.

Three books with quality paper, fine printing and binding.
It will take three months to go through it.
It is interesting, too see how the author matures over the span of the series.

I bought it brand new. I can't say anything about long time use because I only got it last month for my boyfriend. He's a massive Calvin and Hobbes fan and he HAD this collection some time ago but no longer owns it. So I thought this was a fantastic gift idea for someone who actually REALLY appreciates these comics. I go through the comics with him and relive the cute comics. The quality of the pages and print is phenomenal, as well as the cover. I have often read that the binding is poorly done, but I inspected it and it seemed perfectly fine to me. Perhaps with constant use it'll fall apart but I don't see him using these books every single day.

Calvin and Hobbes has always been my favorite comic strip - I would read it each day and look forward to the next day's strip. As puzzled as I was as to how Bill Watterson could possibly come up with such funny stuff each day, he never disappointed me. Calvin reminded me of my own childhood and I could see a lot of my older brother in him. I bought the complete set because, let's face it, it's a classic strip. Having every single Calvin and Hobbes comic strip at my fingertips is a dizzying feeling of elation - I can read it whenever I want to!
