Title: Calvin and Hobbes

Series: Calvin and Hobbes

Author/Artist: Bill Watterson

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Genre: Comics

Pages: 128

Format: Digital scan



We are introduced to Calvin, a 6 year old and how he captured his best friend, Hobbes, a stuffed tiger.

A weekly comic strip from the late 80’s and 90’s, Calvin and Hobbes is about youth, pure and simple.


My Thoughts:

Since I had no money when these started coming out, being but a stripling myself, I would request these for my birthday and once a year I would revel in the adventures of Calvin and his best friend, Hobbes.

Having embarked upon a reread, I found these just as delightful, just as fun and just as wonderful as I remembered. Which goes to show that Bill Watterson was not only a good comic artist, but a genius when it comes to seeing life through the eyes of a young boy.

I have to say, a mere 128 pages sure seems a lot less than it did back then though…
