  • What about Calvin and Hobbes Books in other languages? I think the french language calvin and hobbes books are different from the english ones, at least in their titles and the strips they contain. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:30, 15 May 2006
  • These books were published in the UK:
  1. Calvin and Hobbes Thereby Hangs a Tale
  2. Calvin and Hobbes One Day the Wind Will Change
  3. Calvin and Hobbes in the Shadow of the Night

  • Does this mean that Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons is not included in any of the larger collections? Because if so that's the only one I'm missing. Zaklog 20:01, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
  • There seems to be a date inconsistancy between the references for There's Treasure Everywhere and It's A Magical World. The former says that some March strips are repeated in the latter, while the later says that some April strips are repeated in the former. Which is it - duplicated March strips or duplicated April strips? Since both books cover parts of March *and* April of 1995, perhaps strips from both months are duplicated?

Is it weird that this page doesn't link to Calvin and Hobbes? Can't find a good place to link it though. Borisblue 09:10, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

"Complete Calvin and Hobbes" hardcover set NOT complete[edit]

From a review on

"Let me first say that Calvin and Hobbes is by far my favorite cartoon strip of all time. Even better than Far Side. When I first heard that this complete set was coming out I was thrilled! Finally all of Bill Watterson's work would be available in one deluxe book set! This is why I was kind of upset after really going through the set to find out that it's really not complete. It's very close...but definitely not complete.

Sure this set contains all the comics that ran in the newspapers, plus the cover art for the books, and various other special pictures/poems Bill drew for the series... but if you check out some of the older Calvin & Hobbes collections that were released, you'll find a whole bunch of really funny one-picture strips mixed in with the comic strips that are not included in this set. These were never put in the newspapers, they were probably made specifically for the older collections just to fill up space. For example, one of these one-picture strips featured in the very first Calvin and Hobbes collection shows a terrified Calvin in the back of car his Mom is driving holding up a big sign to the other drivers that says he's been kidnapped. Hilarious stuff...which makes me wonder why it wasn't included in this "COMPLETE" Calvin and Hobbes set.

Then there's also a bunch of pictures at the beginning and end of certain Calving and Hobbes collections that didn't make it to these sets. For instance, at the very end of the collection "Scientific Progress Goes Boink", there is a large picture showing Susie looking down on the sidewalk shocked to see a crude drawing of herself, while Calvin and Hobbes are laughing behind a tree. Why wasn't this included?! "

Does anyone know of a list of the books needed to get all of them? (talk) 09:13, 3 February 2010 (UTC)
