I’m a Calvin & Hobbes fan. Have been for a long time. Once upon a time when I wasn’t as busy with work, I actually spent time collecting strips from the official site. Religiously. Every day. Built up quite a collection too.
Recently I came across the collector’s edition of Calvin & Hobbes: The Complete Calvin & Hobbes. This includes all the syndicated strips plus all special illustrated stories and poems that have appeared in individual books. Plus an original introduction by the man himself, Bill Watterson. There are full-colour covers and spot art pieces all over the collection too. All this in 3 hardbound books in a box.
I ordered it. Sort of a New Year’s gift to myself. Got it on January 29.
