Overview

A funny yet bittersweet look at one of the most intelligent comic strips ever to grace the pages of newspapers. After providing a detailed and fascinating look at the impact of newspapers, syndicates, and editors on a comic strip, Bill Watterson turns his focus toward the battle to not have "Calvin and Hobbes" merchandised in the form of T-shirts, dolls, and the like. The victory was moot, however. Shortly after winning his battle, he retired the strip anyway.

The world is a strange place, and Calvin and his pet/mentor/friend/security blanket navigate all the confusing and often contradictatory currents and backwaters. They find fun in strange places, and learn disturbing truths from even stranger sources. Calvin is all of us, and anyone who can't see themselves in him is in denial. This book has virtually all the best moments from the strip.
