As far as multiple day story arcs go, Calvin starts getting mysterious letters in the mail. Who is sending them? What will the messages say? Late in the book, we get another episode with Get Rid Of Slimy girlS (G.R.O.S.S.) as they plot to ensnare neighbor Susie in a fiendish trap to lure her behind the house to hit her with water balloons. Calvin's alter ego Stupendous Man makes an appearance to take a history test for Calvin. Calvin makes a deal with Susie to eats worms for money. And as Christmas approaches, Calvin tries to figure out just how good he has to be to get presents from Santa.
Despite the lack of long running stories, there are many great strips in this book. I've read it I don't know how many times, and I still managed to laugh my way through it this weekend. The artwork is perfect for helping fill in the story as well.
This was a wonderful comic strip I still miss. If you don't have this book, pick it up today.
Calvin's antics continue unabated in this, one of the later colour Sunday books. By this point in the series the characters and themes were so finely drawn and well-established that the stories flow with fantastic precision and timing - and are absolutely hilarious as a result. Calvin's interplay with his parents - particularly around those tasks that his dad says `build character,' the anguished inner conflict he experiences when he has to be good at Christmas, and his general nihilistic rants at a modern world that demands you have to be educated and then employed all come together in a superb collection of panel and full-page strips that you will instantly lose yourself in and feel like you've done a thousand sit-ups when you've finished laughing.
As well as being a joy to have and hold, the full-page, full-colour spreads beautifully capture Calvin's outlook on life, and allowed Watterson to flex his artistic muscles in a way that the standard newspaper formats prohibited. It doesn't take too long to read cover to cover - maybe an hour or two - but once you've picked it up you won't put it down again until you've finished it, but personally I can think of no better way to spend £12 and an afternoon. If you don't immediately love Calvin & Hobbes, then I'm afraid you have no soul.
But C&H is not empty soundbite humour - there is an intelligence and honesty about the writing that can really give you a fresh perspective on the world without being preachy.Read more ›

I love Calvin and Hobbes. Only minor negative is that some of the larger cartoons aren't very readable on the Kindle.Published 19 months ago by AndyL
