Calvin and Hobbes 10th Anniversart Book

Bet you didn't know I was a fan of this duo, huh? But really, who isn't a fan of Calvin and Hobbes? This is widely regarded as one of the greatest comic strips of all-time.

Yesterday, I picked up the Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book for $5.99 at my Borders. This book is pretty cheap and easy to come by. Originally released in 1995, this book isn't merely a collection of comics. Sure, you'll get plenty of laughs from the many daily and Sunday strips that are included here, but you'll also get a good dose of background info on the characters and inspiration of said characters from the author, Bill Waterson. Even though I own, The Essential Calvin and Hobbes (another great collection), the info from Waterson makes the Tenth Anniversary Book worth owning for me. Also, considering the original price was $16.99, the price I paid was a steal.

Naughty Naughty, A Steal?

I think it's an OK strip, I wish I had a tiger as a real friend instead of imagining a stuffed tiger walk on two legs and chat with me
