    One thought on “Calvin and Hobbes”

    1. Strip after strip after strip.Some books just win you over. I too sleep with the baseball bat beside my bed to kill the monster lurking down it.I wonder I still may not be old enough to not start doing this poll manipulation thing with my dad either.I do not want my wife to have such a kid in the house. I want to be that kid rather. We might consider a tiger instead.With characters sketched up as well as these, you will be going out of your way not to give this one a 5 star.Wonderful and addicti [...]

    2. This is what I got in my mail box to cheer me up while I used to study late in the winter. Too stressed with your schedule and cold??Have a Calvin break [image error]

    3. Ο Κάλβιν είναι ένας εξάχρονος διαβολάκος που ζει με τη μαμά και τον μπαμπά του, τους οποίους συνηθίζει να φέρνει στα όρια νευρικής κρίσης. Ο αγαπημένος φίλος του, ο Χομπς, είναι ένας μικρός τίγρης. Μπορεί για όλους τους άλλους να μοιάζει ως ένα απλό λούτρινο ζωάκι, αλλά μέσα α [...]

    4. If you want to appreciate the peace in your life better than you do, want to realize and feel proud on its beauty, serenity and tranquility then you have to read Calvin and Hobbes.Calvin is a 6-years old super intelligent, humorous and lazy kid, a kid whom you never wish you have in your life. Because he uses his intelligence in making people's life miserable! Not in an evil way, but a way not less than evil!Hobbes is his stuffed tiger, calm, modest, sarcastic and funny who plays with Calvin and [...]

    5. Who doesn’t love Calvin, the over imaginative, mischievous child, with his imaginary tiger friends Hobbes? His antics drive his parents to the brink of insanity and he loves pondering about his Captain Spiff fantasies during class. He is always either making excuses for not having the healthy (read: disgusting) food he has been served, or advocating children’s right to vote in crucial decision like bed time hours, or irritating his friends Susie.Every page is funnier than the last one and th [...]

    6. Calvin is a fabulous kid with fantastic imagination and he has a stunning feature to drive mad everyone around.

    7. I don't know if I lived in a bomb shelter as a kid or was subject to a weird mind-altering device, but I don't remember ever reading Calvin and Hobbes. Like ever. And it's fantastic. The humor is totally smart and clever, and their friendship charming. It's funny how the parents really are the bad guys from Calvin's perspective, and we're not sure if Hobbes is real or imaginary. But I suppose if he's real to Calvin then he is real, isn't he? Recommended for re-instilling optimism after the world [...]

    8. Love it love it love it!One of the best comics ever! Although it's just another story about a super hyperactive small boy and his imaginary friend, you love Calvin so much because of his hilarious "know-it-all" comments. He trashed through house, to the point that his parents hoped that they had dachsund instead. (Heard from the doctor's examination room):Calvin: "Hey, doc, why are you rubbing my arm with cotton? Are you going to put a leech there? Are you going to bleed me? You're not going to [...]

    9. Love, love, LOVE this cartoon! Especially love Calvin's dad and his explanations!! Oh, and Hobbes when he gets on the subject of girls. <3

    10. I think Calvin and Hobbes is the best comic of all time. I'm sure you've all heard of this, because Calvin and Hobbes has been around for a very long time. But for those who haven't read it, I say pick that comic book up right now! This book is comic strips about a six year old who hates school, homework, baths, his "evil" baby sitter, Rosalyn, and food his mother makes. Calvin's friend, Hobbes, is a stuffed tiger that comes to life when nobody is around except Calvin. His next door neighbor and [...]

    11. Iskreno ne znam nikoga ko je uspeo na bolji i zabavniji nacin da prikaze psihu malog hiperaktivnog klinca bolje nego Vareson. Svaka cast.Plus razasuto kroz celu knjigu ima i dosta interesantnih pitanja kao i konstatacija koje stvarno navode na razmisljanje.Preporuka.

    12. SCUSATE IL RITARDOCALVIN AND HOBBES è geniale. Finora avevo letto poche strisce sui giornali americani e questo è il primo volume che mi godo: da qui la richiesta di scuse per il ritardo. Ma farò ammenda, ne leggerò presto altri.Mi piace tutto: il disegno, il testo, i personaggi, le strisce di lunghezza normale e quelle che durano una pagina intera. E' irriverente come devono essere i fumetti di valore. E' divertente, anzi spassoso. Rispetto ai mitici meravigliosi Peanuts, aggiunge il mondo [...]

    13. Calvin and Hobbes became a favorite of mine back in the mid 80s. In black and white on the pages of the Indianapolis Star I followed the young boy - Calvin - an imaginative (understatement) 1st grader, and his often times alive, sometimes stuffed-tiger sidekick Hobbes, who very often was Calvin's conscience (yes, rarely listened to!). Many of us can relate to the story of a young boy and his favorite stuffed animal going to far away worlds on other planets, to prehistoric earth, or just being a [...]

    14. Duh, ceritanya. Lucu dengan satire dan komentar sosial di beberapa bagian. Kasihan sih sebenarnya sama orang tuanya si Calvin ini. Pasti pusing punya anak hiperaktif yang punya segudang ulah kayak si Calvin ini :)).Di sini dunia anak-anaknya tergambarkan sekali, ya. Batas antara realita dan imajinasi sangat tipis. Si Calvin ini juga sebenarnya sadar akan keduanya, tapi dia lebih cenderung untuk (memilih, atau mungkin juga secara alami) bermain di dalam dunia fantasinya.

    15. It's been years since I've read any of the Calvin and Hobbes comics and when I stumbled across this first volume at the library, I couldn't help devouring it in one sitting. This book serves as an excellent reminder of why Calvin and Hobbes was so popular in its day and why it is so revered now: Bill Watterson created a brilliant and charming character in six-year-old Calvin. The little boy is hilarious and adorable, especially when his stuffed tiger Hobbes comes to life. Whether sledding in the [...]

    16. I'm a big fan of Calvin and Hobbes, and the first edition of the collections was no different. If ever I need to feel uplifted, and have a little chuckle to myself, then I can just go back to the child tearaway that is Calvin, and the imaginary friend I always wished I'd had that is Hobbes. My favourite cartoon series of all time, and a delightful first collection.

    17. My childhood favourite comic strip. Reading it nowadays brings you back to the feeling of endless summer days spent with your best friends Real or imagined

    18. Calvin and Hobbes are tow of the most likeable and characters you will fine in this fun advancer you will fined comady and lots of fun you rely need to read this book.

    19. Easily among the most clever of comic strips, Watterson's cartoons of the boy Calvin and his imaginative ( real Tiger ) Hobbes was a treat to read daily and in this 127 page soft cover collection. All black and white strips. Great stuff!

    20. Oh wow. I think these books might be longest-loved on my favorites list. My dad read these a long long time ago and gave them to me to read, I might have been six. I liked these books at first, but now I love them. I must have memorized a full book's worth of comic strips and was very disappointed when they stopped being in the newspaper comic strip section! They're funny, sweet, and evil. Calvin's morbid sense of humor and wide vocabulary and mature way of thinking mixed with his slight little- [...]

    21. Logan carries around his best stuffed friend, Cuddles, who is a white tiger, so he and Calvin have something in common. Some of the stuff went over Logan's head and I had to explain it, but overall, lots of laughs. Logan's never been to school, so there was some unfamiliar territory there, but he watches Johnny Test, which has clued him in to all the school talk and the issues with school, so he gets why Calvin hates school. He knows what it means to be called to the principal, to be scolded for [...]

    22. THIS IS THE CUTEST BOOK EVER.I remember reading this book back when I was younger, and to this day, I stand by the belief that this book is utterly and undeniably ADORABLE. Not only it is cute, it's also hilarious, always managing to put a smile on my face.I am not that into comic books, but this book exposed me to the world of comics, a genre I would not have ventured into if not for Calvin and Hobbes. I recommend this book to readers of all ages, as this book is in no way exclusive to one age [...]

    23. This book belongs to my son Marc. He left this on the stairs and needless to say I picked it up and started reading it. Couldn't stop!! I loved Calvin and Hobbes when I was a teen. Marc has loved it since I can remember. No wonder.he is Calvin!!!! I laughed out loud so many times and that is because 20 years ago I read it and saw the world from Calvin's eyes. Now I'm reading it and sympathizing with Calvin's parents!!! Everyone needs a good dose of laughter. Read this, it won't disappoint!

    24. I absolutely adore Calvin and Hobbes: it's constantly funny which is quite a feat where there are so many comics in one book.This was great to read in between studying for my exams because I could simply read one or two and finish them in a short time, but it still made me laugh and relax a bit, so absolutely great!

    25. paradigmatic trenchcoat mafia type has psychotic fantasies, wars against the cool kids, and engages in reckless recreations.
