[A] wry collection. (DAILY MAIL)

Product Description

Now available for the first time as an e-book!

Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat chronicles another segment of the multifarious adventures of this wild child and his faithful, but skeptical, friend. If the best cartoons compel readers to identify themselves within the funny frames, then all who enjoy Calvin and Hobbes are creative, imaginative, and ... bad, bad, bad! Calvin, the irascible little boy with the stuffed tiger who comes to life are a pair bound for trouble. Boring school lessons become occasions for death-defying alien air battles, speeding snow sled descents elicit philosophical discussions on the meaning of life, and Hobbe's natural inclination to pounce on his little friend wreaks havoc on Calvin's sense of security. Calvin's the kid we all wish we'd been. Sassy, imaginative, far more verbal than his parents can manage, Calvin is the quintessential bad boy -- and the boy we love to see. He terrorizes little Susie, offers "Candid Opinions" from a neighborhood stand, and questions his parents' authority. "What assurance do I have that your parenting isn't screwing me up?" he demands. Calvin and Hobbes manages to say what needs to be said about childhood and life: "Eww, mud," says Calvin. "Look at this gooshy, dirty, slimy, thick, wet mud ... Bleecch ... Talk about a kid magnet!"

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Watterson's best 1 April 2000
Format:Paperback
Having read and re-read many of the strips and collections, I can say with certainty that this was one of the best. The wit, the sly in-jokes his father has with him, to the dinner time adventures Calvin has. The full page strip of Calvin's stomach trying to digest his meal is a cracker. Quite simply, you will not regret buying this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homicidal Phyco Jungle Cat review by Kevin 31 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I will have to say that this my favorite book of the Calvin and Hobbes. At night when I can't sleep I pick out one of these collection books and read for hours. Homicidal Phyco Jungle Cat is the one that I mostly read. I like to read about how Calvin gets in trouble at school and at home, his adventures with Space Man Spiff and Stupendus Man, but his discoveries with his best friend Hobbes. When Mr. Watterson was still writting Calvin and Hobbes comics the first comic strip I would read on Sunday morning in the paper was Calvin and Hobbs. Since I can't read them in the papers I like to read these books.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of them all 21 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Well, "Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat" is by far the most sadisitc of the series, and the best. It holds this honor for many reasons, probably the most obvious, though, is the 'traffic safety poster contest.' That strip was pure gold. Definitely read this, but read the others first (that way, you build up to this one).After this one,the best are probably "Something Under The Bed Is Drooling," and "Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons."

5.0 out of 5 stars Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat: A misnomer 27 Mar 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is good book that explores the deeper, philosophical side of Calvin. However, if you're looking for a lot of babysitter abuse, Spaceman Spiff antics, or Sally getting water ballooned, you'll be disappointed. Younger ones will not get most of the humor, although you may want to save this one for them when they grow up ; they'll get it then.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review from Mr. Entertainment Lover 8 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is by far the best Calvin and Hobbes book ever written. It contains Calvin as Stupendous Man trying to pass his test, mean letters from Hobbes, and a best poster contest. Spaceman Spiff will leave you laughing and so will the dinosaour ones. Heck the whole book will leave you laughing. You're going to want to read more and more of it.

This was one of two books I ordered, though advertised as new, it was scuffed, dog-eared and marked with inky thumb prints. I asked for a 33% partial refund rather than replace it. Read more
