Well, I am stoked and surprised to hear about this I can't even imagine - every syndicated Calvin and Hobbes strip ever in one collection. I have most of the books, but that comic strip meant so much to me I think I might buy it anyway. If you haven't checked it out, Calvin and Hobbes is probably one of the best comic strips to ever be created. Right about now, the only comic strip that's as good or nearly as good is Frazz. (It's easily the most intelligent. There's even an internet rumor that Frazz is done by Bill Watterson under a pseudonym. The similarities are there.) The only other strip really worth reading is Get Fuzzy. Just thought I would give y'all a heads up on it.
