Calvin and Hobbes was a comic strip you found in newspapers. Has anyone heard of it?

Yep, I had many of the collections when I was growing up. Most of them went missing all of a sudden and I couldn't figure out where they went until a few years later. I was going through my fathers bedside table and found them stowed away so yeah, that's nice.

Certainly one of the best drawn comic strips ever, and if you ever had an imaginary friend growing up reading it is like reliving childhood.

Severely overrated, have read 3 separate compilations (ten year anniversary, 15 year anniversary, indispensable) after reading hundreds of entries I laughed one time when he was that detective. But when you compare to the trash that is garfield or peanuts it's very impressive

I've read one compilation book of it, but I wasn't to crazy about it. Except for the snowmen. Oh, gosh, those snowmen! I want to try making my own, but we don't have enough snow yet. xD

Calvin Hobbes is one of the best comics in the newspapers of all time, even though Bill.W decided end the comic strip in 95 before my time. Lucky for me, my school had Calvin and Hobbes where I would enjoy reading the Calvin and Hobbes's books at recess.
You can get the Calvin and Hobbes's box set online, book store, and maybe a retail store.

I never saw it in the newspapers but my parents love it. They have a hell of a lot fo the books (Scientific Progress Goes Boink! Calvin and Hobbes 1, There's Treasure Everywhere, Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat, Yukon Ho! Revenge of the Baby-Sat and the 10th Anniversary book to be precise) and they're entertaining to flip through every now and then.

I have the Hardcovers and the last newspaper the strip appeared in in mylar.
I also have a few of the softcovers so I do not have to bend the spine on the hardcovers. I want the hardcovers to last a while.

Sure. Quite a few strips are archived at GoComics.Com . I also have all of the paperback books (i.e., not the hardcover compendia). It's a wonderful strip, and it was a wise move to go out on a high note, rather than drag it out like some strips that died a slow, withering death.

I loved that strip! the expressions and the story were silly, touching, and sometimes profound that matched an average 6yr old and even some adults. I loved how contrast that played off of Calvin and Hobbes' characters. Wonderful comic of my youth.
