Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a superb box set! At such a cost, I had to have it! I was wondering what it was going to look like, a paperback edition can sometimes be way different than the original edition but no! A perfect collection in every way! The colours are bright (was expecting black & white, can you imagine!), beautifully printed, tears of joy filled up my eyes when I opened the package! A great introduction written by the master himself gives a good idea of how Calvin & Hobbes came to be and how/why Mr Watterson was so protective of his work. Get it NOW!
