Calvin and Hobbes?
« on: February 06, 2014, 06:15:40 AM »
So I just got several of my brother's Calvin and Hobbes books from him since he's moving, and I started to read them. Wow, it's like I'm revisiting the best parts of my childhood. Seriously, one of my favorite past times was reading these comics into the night. Kinda makes me feel like a kid again only I understand certain things better with Calvin's rather broad vocabulary.

Anyways, I believe there was a thread maybe not on this board but the old one and I was just wondering if there were any other fans of the comics?

Oh, I definitely am a fan of Calvin & Hobbes.  :D  I wish the author hadn't stopped making them.  But all good things have to end sometime, I suppose.

True! But, I've always been able to re-read the anthologies and still find them funny, so I don't mind so much. A lot of my friends enjoy it, but they've said they can't read a strip more than once. XD

That's pretty dang awesome, A6.

You've been collecting them, Cass? Where are you buying them?

I think there were a couple reasons as to why Watterson ended it where he did, I don't completely remember the reasons though.

Barnes & Noble and Amazon. XD They sell the larger and smaller anthologies. XD There's also a free Calvin and Hobbes app for Android devices. You can view all the strips, I believe, on your phone and/or tablet. ^^

I'm just curious in case my brother ever wants his copies back. How much are they on Barnes & Noble and Amazon?

Um...it depends on the size, I think. The larger ones are probably $14.99 and up, but I've gotten the smaller ones for $7.99 in Barnes & Noble.

It looks like most on Amazon are around $15-20 with Prime, depending on which ones you get.

That's not too bad. I thought they'd be more expensive considering how much the full hardback collectors edition is.

Not really sure what ones are the larger ones and what are the smaller ones though.

Calvin and Hobbes is one of the greatest comics of all time.
I used to have all the books but some of them got misplaced over the years

Indeed it is. A lot of people hold it in high praise I've noticed, which is way cool!

Apparently there's a short comic by Watterson of when Calvin is older. He's married to Suzie (I always knew they liked eachother) and has a daughter. Plus of course he kept Hobbes.

There's also a few nice fanpics of an older Calvin. My favorites are probably the two where Hobbes and Calvin become spies/secret agents.

Heehee!

Not sure if anyone's ever read Pearls Before Swine, but there's a couple of strips that feature older Calvin and one with Hobbes, I think. XD

Yeah I know, I've read them. It's why I mentioned it.

But are there really 4? I only read two of them.
