It just doesn't get much better than Calvin and Hobbes tbqh. View 1 comment. Dec 07, Dana Salman rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-more-than-twice , just-plain-fun. Calvin is a hypocritical, imaginative, dim-whitted, self-centered, insensitive, brutish and rambunctious six-year-old.
Hobbes is a sarcastic, peace-loving, supportive, somewhat phsychotic stuffed tiger. Together, the two make a whacky, noisy, messy, hilarious, unforgettable pair. That's alot of meaningless adjectives, among many, to describe two of my favorite characters in the comic strip department. This book especially had me gripped because it contained one of my favorite 'card-board box' sto Calvin is a hypocritical, imaginative, dim-whitted, self-centered, insensitive, brutish and rambunctious six-year-old.
This book especially had me gripped because it contained one of my favorite 'card-board box' stories, which earned it the name 'Scientific Progress Goes "Boink"'. Calvin remodels his old transmogrifier really all he does is turn it on its side into a duplicator. He plans to use it to make a clone of himself that will be responsible for doing all the dirty work for him.
But the plan backfires, and the duplicate proves to be just as much of a lazy jerk as he is. It creates more duplicates, and each of these gets Calvin in trouble in turn.
The funny thing is, by the end, after the crisis is solved, Calvin states "Okay, so we didn't learn a lesson. Sue me. The other multiple, equally comical strips contained in this volume perfectly illustrate Calvin's ranting hyprocrisy, selfishness, and imagination. And yet there are also a few strips that portray a rare characteristic of his that ever little kid portrays; child innosence. Of course, that really isn't what we want from him, or atleast not me. He's funnier as a dickhead, and as long as he's funny, who cares how he treats people?
Mar 18, Mark rated it it was amazing Shelves: comics , humour , calvin-hobbes. Funny, occasionally melancholic, often unexpectedly moving and, above all else, beautifully observed, this is an excellent read that I highly recommend. Jan 21, Mark Austin rated it it was amazing. Calvin and Hobbes were a bedrock of my childhood. I'm estimating I've read each five times but in reality I'd just grab one at random, open at random, and then be lost in the world of Calvinball and Spaceman Spiff, Suzy Derkins and Moe, fantastic snowmen and philosophical walks in the woods with Hobbes.
As a kid who lived in his imagination to escape the many difficulties of an unstable childhood and crippling depths of introversion, Calvin embodied that side of me though I was actually mild-man Calvin and Hobbes were a bedrock of my childhood. As a kid who lived in his imagination to escape the many difficulties of an unstable childhood and crippling depths of introversion, Calvin embodied that side of me though I was actually mild-mannered.
Hobbes' outsider's views on the flaws of human society and our materialistic culture sank deep and gave some justification to my perpetual feelings of being an outsider.
If the status quo is flawed, being one step removed gave perspective and freed me from the need to conform. Maybe this is over-analysis and -attribution, but in retrospect I do see some roots of my ability to accept the belief that I was different in Hobbes' musings. Shelves: topshelf , humor , comics. Calvin and Hobbes is always good for a laugh when you're down.
But the thing that I love most about Bill Watterson's work is that he has the ability to make you laugh and in the middle of great big belly laughs he can "make you go hmmm". Hilarious and thoughtful. Feb 08, Exina rated it it was amazing. A great book of the series again! The title story is the best of all! The Christmas poem is really charming, I love moments like this.

Darn it! Can it get even better? Oct 24, Ginger rated it really liked it. Jan 14, Pooja rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic. Calvin's interest in science is a big deal. He has so much potential. But when the scientific progress goes out of the hand, emergency services need to be called. Dec 23, Heatherblakely rated it it was amazing Shelves: own.
Lots of snowmen and Susie! Mar 18, Scott rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels , re-read. Always brilliant! Jan 23, Anderson Lee rated it it was amazing. Nov 10, Kevin Keating rated it it was amazing. Watterson probably has to be the best funny comic I've read.
Probs the best artist and deepest. Incredible pictures of monsters and has great expression. At least tied with Larson. Oct 22, Claire rated it really liked it. Feb 08, Anthony Buck rated it it was amazing. The standard in this series is so relentlessly high.
This is maybe the funniest yet but plenty of insightful and cerebral stuff gets in too. Oct 27, Mary Catelli rated it really liked it Shelves: humor , comic-strips. Another of Bill Watterson's works. The title noise is that of the duplicator producing copies of Calvin -- who didn't think how copies would act. Also appearing are dreams of waking up, snowballs, floating to the ceiling, and growing enormous.
Feb 22, Susan rated it really liked it. I came across this at the local Goodwill and had to see if Calvin was as funny now as I thought he was then.
