Not a bad deal, looks like it's mostly been sitting around $90 on Amazon for the last few year or so.

@tommytom02:

Same for me -- but that required a 30% off coupon. Happens a few times a year....the most recent 25-30% coupons happened just before Christmas.

Not a bad price if you'd like the set now...well worth it IMHO.

Edit: 15% off coupon A8N7K7X puts it at $78 + tax. Free shipping if you want to sign up for a free trial membership with BN of some sort of supreme membership.

I would love to have this but I read a lot of bad reviews on poor binding and the fact that they censored/changed a lot of the original comics when putting them in this compilation.

But I doubt there will ever be a remake of this

I miss these guys too! Didn't someone post a link to some new Calvin and Hobbes comics that someone was making?

@devexityspace: I hadn't heard they'd changed it. I'll be disappointed if it's true.

Picked it up during a Black Friday lightning deal on Amazon for about $70. It was my Christmas present to myself. Already had all the books, but I'd been wanting this since they first published it. I was surprised by how heavy it is, I'd say 20+ pounds!

@devexityspace: My binding has held up fine, but I got a first printing. Maybe there was a bad batch?

Also, I think only one or two of the comics were altered a bit, and the changes were done by Watterson himself so they're not "censored". The only one I can recall ended with Calvin's mom originally saying "kid, anyone but your biological mother would've sent you to the wolves a long time ago", and he felt that was insensitive to adopted children.

@dmaz:

You're looking for Calvin & Hobbes & Bacon I think...

Search google for 'Calvin and hobbes mashups' and you'll find examples of how other artists might envision the duo.

Great comics, hilarious and comforting all at the same time.

I can sooo relate to Calvin.

The Muppets, Dr Suess and Calvin. Learned more from that trio than anything else in my life.
