05 May 2005, 08:28 PM

Thats right, the "The Complete Calvin and Hobbes" published by Andrews McMeel Publishing is on the shelves October 4, 2005!!! I looking forward to this big time! Waterson does fantastic work!

Hardcover: 1440 pages

Composed of three hardcover, four-color volumes in a sturdy slipcase, this edition will include all Calvin and Hobbes cartoons that ever appeared in syndication. This is the treasure that all Calvin and Hobbes fans will seek.

I think this is CG news, isn't it?

Holy cow, that's awesome..I have just about every C&H compilation book ever, but this would be fantastic to have. I like what's being done for the Peanuts compilations too.

...and the first item on my chirstmas wishlist has appeared. :thumbsup:

D'oh, I ended up buying all the books again only a month or two ago. This would be pretty cool to have, though.

Very tempting indeed - sounds like a great set to have :)

There's a good picture of this edition at Amazon's UK site -

Thats a nice looking box set!
Interesting that the UK Amazon has pics and the .com Amazon doesn't :shrug:

I like what's being done for the Peanuts compilations too. Yes, I've been getting those... at vol #3 (of 25!) currently. I've never seen most of Shultz' early work... its great!

I'm going to have to get this!

But...what about the strips before he got syndicated? Are those already collected somewhere?
