Strip after strip after strip Some books just win you over I too sleep with the baseball bat beside my bed to kill the monster lurking down it.I wonder I still may not be old enough to not start doing this poll manipulation thing with my dad either.I do not want my wife to have such a kid in the house I want to be that kid rather We might consider a tiger instead.With characters sketched up as well as these, you will be going out of your way not to give this one a 5 star Wonderful and addictive.Did I say 5 stars already Make that 5 stars plus one for the timelessness captured. I reread this book about once a year, along with the rest of the Calvin Hobbes series, because it is simply wonderful Nobody can balance sincere wonder and biting snark quite like Bill WattersonFor those of you who don t know yes, such people exist Calvin is the kid with the wild hair, and Hobbes is his loyal stuffed tiger Whether Hobbes comes alive by magic a la the Velveteen Rabbit, or is but a figment of Calvin s admittedly overactive imagination, is a question that not only never gets answered, but that Watterson isn t even interested in answering Needless to say, the strip flirts with surrealism to say nothing of sci fi, superhero comics, and noir detective stories Calvin s existential angst a brilliant child trapped in the suburbs with no one who understands him is hinted at here, but not as pronounced as it later becomes.In this, the earliest collection, Watterson s drawing style is a bit raw than it became, the characterizations are in mild flux, and the storylines and punchlines are less ambitious But early CH is much closer to later CH than, say, 50s Peanuts is to 70s Peanuts This book is probably where new fans should start, because they get introduced to Calvin s friends and family naturally, as if in the beginning of a novel.CH eventually gained an uncanny emotional depth for its medium, and the seeds of that are planted here Read this book if you haven t already. Once upon a time, I was nuts for Calvin and Hobbes I read it every Sunday morning and bought the first six collected editions Once Bill Watterson retired, so did my interest in reading newspaper comics Earlier this morning, I watched the documentary Dear Mr Watterson, which was great, and decided to check out the dog eared, well loved Calvin and Hobbes collections sitting on a shelf in my basement As I write this, it s been easily 25 years since I cracked this puppy open.The story starts as it must Calvin catches his tiger, Hobbes, in a trap using a tuna sandwich The first thing I notice is that Calvin looks slightly different than his iconic look His head is shaped a little differently and his hair is a little off Other than that, all the winning ingredients are there, right from the get go.Another thing I notice right off the bat is the attention to detail in the backgrounds, particularly in the larger Sunday strips Watterson put tons of effort into some of the scenes, effort he probably didn t need to, but it seems like he wasn t willing to phone it in like so many other cartoonists when it came to the little touches.Most of the characters that appear throughout the life of the series are introduced in this volume Calvin s parents, of course, the principal, Mrs Wormwood, Rosalyn the babysitter, Moe, Susie Derkins, they re all here and fully realized No Stupendous Man yet in this volume but Spaceman Spiff is all over the place Also, Calvin plays a character called Safari Al, something I completely forgot about Did Safari Al make any appearances after the first year I also didn t remember Calvin being a Cub Scout.Calvin tackles such menaces as going to school, monsters under his bed, stifling parents, babysitters, the school bully, trying new foods, and the biggest enemy of all for a kid boredom Calvin s powerful imagination reminds me of simpler times, when the daily grind of going to school was the only obstacle to pure freedom.Now that I m decades older, Calvin s parents strike a cord with me You know his mother and father aren t where they want to be in life Mom s stuck being the disciplinarian while Dad s clearly coasting, making shit up as he goes along, partly to amuse himself and partly because he doesn t know what else to do.One of my favorites of the early strips is Calvin s mom making dinner and telling Calvin they re having stewed monkey heads.While still in its formative years in this volume, it s easy to see why Calvin and Hobbes is still revered today The stories are timeless tales of childhood and imagination I think part of the reason people still talk about Calvin and Hobbes is because it went out on top Bill Watterson wasn t content to churn out strips year after year just to keep the gravy train going.While it isn t my favorite Calvin and Hobbes collection by a long chalk, even the greatest newspaper strip of the modern era had to start somewhere It s a great beginning and still a lot of fun over three decades after the strips were originally published 4.5 out of 5 stars.
