The Complete Calvin and Hobbes is a gorgeous three volume box set with almost every Calvin and Hobbes strip included. What do you mean almost? Well for some reason the following strip has never been reprinted in any of the Calvin and Hobbes collections. Nobody knows why.

Calvin and Hobbes is probably the best comic strip ever invented. It's consistently funny, has gorgeous art, the dynamics between Calvin and his tiger as well as Calvin's interactions with his parents, schoolmates, baby sitter, etc. are comic gold. Not to mention Calvin's over-active imagination lets the strip wander all over the place. If you're going to have one comic strip collection on your bookshelf, it should be this one. Run, don't walk on over to Amazon.com and pick this baby up. The MSRP is $150 but Amazon is selling it for under $100. Not to mention they have free shipping. Considering how much this thing weighs, I don't know how they can be making any money off of this. Get it quick before they change their mind.
