This treasury includes great poems written by Watterson at the beginning of the book. In this treasury you'll know how Calvin found Hobbes, when he first met Susie, etc. This is one of Watterson's best books! After "Homicidal psycho jungle cat" and "it's a magical World" I like this the most.
If you love sarcasm, humour, and great colourful drawings you'll love to have this treasury. Some of the reasons why I love this book are the sarcastic jokes, normal jokes, the characters' expressions, and fiction stories and poems like Spaceman Spiff stories. Nightmares like monsters under the bed at night also lead to excellent jokes.
You'll love Hobbes, Calvin, Calvin's parents, Rosalyn, Miss Wormwood, and Susie. I don't really like "Moe" but I like the thiongs Calvin does to avoid Moe.
Bill's works on Calvin and Hobbes is fun to look at and read. The hilarious pictures help add more humour to the stories.
This great treasury would be suitable for people of all ages. It might not be suitable for children under the age of "eight" cause they might not understand the humour!
Calvin and Hobbes is more than a comic strip, and that's what makes it so special. Far Side and Dilbert are clever and hilarious as well, but Calvin's creator has an artistic talent that will not be confined. The everyday life of his six-year-old protagonist is frequently spliced with daydreams--Spaceman Spiff, Dinosaurs, etc.--which are consistently staggering in their rendering. It's art good enough for Marvel but stylistically superior. In the later years he was arguing with newspapers for half- or full-page spaces that would do his work justice.
What impresses me perhaps the most about Watterson, though, is his integrity. From the great beginning that is this book, up through the end, he refused to have his art form violated by commercialism. Calvin will be found ONLY on the printed page, not on TV, not on a baseball cap (save the amateur ones), not in a breakfast cereal, nor action figures, nor a fanclub, nor a box of fruit snacks. Watterson was true to the integrity of his character. What's more, he quit while he was ahead--before his strip could become repetitive, but after its potential had been fully explored.
So buy this book, if you haven't already. In fact, do yourself a favor and buy every Calvin collection, because each is completely flawless. Calvin and Hobbes is the best cartoon that ever was, and it's the best cartoon that will ever be. I'd bet my sense of humor on it.
Most of all, the creator of the strip, Watterson, is a true rarity: he refused to commericalize the characters - the only product he sells are book collections of the original strip, like this one - and retired in 1995 when he felt he was beginning to become repetitive. Watterson literally walked away from millions of dollars to save the integrity of his creations, Calvin and Hobbes.
For once, both the characters in the strip and their creator in real life teach us something about what is really important in life - and that it is not REALLY all about money and climbing the corporate ladder after all.
Just compare the well-drawn, love-of-life, intelligent and uncommercialized Calvin&Hobbes to the poorly-drawn, cynical, shallow and commercialized-to-the-wazoo contraption named "Dilbert", for example. Compare the talent and integrity of Watterson to the talentless "sell out to whoever pays more" character of "Dilbert"'s creator.
This will give you a REAL insight on what is wrong with the world.
