THE COMPLETE CALVIN AND HOBBES
"It's a magical world, Hobbes ol' buddy... let's go exploring!"
CALVIN AND HOBBES manages to capture the magic of childhood, the frustrations of adulthood, and the wonder and hilarity of everyday life. In this collection, punctuated by over-the-top color Sunday spreads inspired by George Herriman's KRAZY KAT, we marvel at Calvin's horrific snowmen, hear every POW! as he is knocked over by Hobbes, and ponder the logistics of how a T-rex would fly a fighter jet. A classic comic work that never fails to entertain, in a beautiful long-term format. Increasingly uncommon in the first printing.
