    I live in a small town so the comics in the newspaper suck, but I remember reading 3 of the books! THEY ROCK /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Read every comic, have every book. Quit getting the paper when he quit writing. Best comic writer EVER.

    I also have a lot of respect for the artist because he's the only artist that I know of who didn't sell out to stuffed dolls, stickers, and all the usual commercial crap.

    Yep. have all the books, that was "comic" at it's highest form, not the inane family circus, not the sloth familiarity of garfield, pue whimsical imaginitive work

    I wish they'd release a series of hard cover editions of every comic

    i gotta say i was pretty depressed when our pal bill quit doin calvin and hobbes. calvin was my role model, and i feel like i've grown up without a guiding light since the comic was discontinued /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/bow.gif

    Those sticker are illegal copies, but I don't think Watterson is doing anything about them. I hate them too.

    Calvin and Hobbes rule. I especially like his Spaceman Spiff personna when he's bored in school, and the crazy snowmen he made, like the snowman house of horrors.

    yea, i love all of it.remember when calvin was going to hold susie derkins doll hostage? and she took hobbes (well hobbes was left there) /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif. and calvin had to pay a quarter to get hobbes back. that look on his face was the best. BILL WATERSON is the BEST. we all need a transmorgrafier. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    that wasnt very long ago, i dont think that anyone could not remember calvin and hobbes, it was really a pretty recent comic

    i never followed the comic very closely but i kinda remember the doll and stuff, sorta


    oh well
