The Complete Calvin and Hobbes
This is the best newspaper comic book compilation I have.
The Complete Calvin and Hobbes is the collection of 10 years of comic strips. There are 3 books housed in a slipcase.
On each page is the date the comic was published. And the comics are arranged chronologically. You can follow the funny story arcs and the see how the comic has evolved over the decade. Book One has 14-page introduction written by Bill Watterson himself.
All the comic strips are printed on high quality paper and all Sunday panels are in colour. It's seriously a tome and it weighs like one too. The hard cover is sturdy and professional and the binding is perfect.
If you're a fan of comic strip, you should probably get this collection.
