Calvin and Hobbes are ready to pounce back on bestseller lists everywhere with this all-new collection of daily and color Sunday cartoons. Reprising the wide-open landscape format of last year's collection, The Days Are Just Packed, Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat chronicles another segment of the multifarious adventures of this wild child and his faithful, but skeptical, friend. If the best cartoons compel readers to identify themselves within the funny frames, then all who enjoy Calvin and Hobbes are creative, imaginative, and ... bad, bad, bad! Calvin, the irascible little boy with the stuffed tiger who comes to life are a pair bound for trouble. Boring school lessons become occasions for death-defying alien air battles, speeding snow sled descents elecit philosophical discussions on the meaning of life, and Hobbe's natural inclination to pounce on his little friend wreaks havoc on Calvin's sense of security. Calvin's the kid we all wish we'd been. Sassy, imaginative, far more verbal than his parents can manage, Calvin is the quintessential bad boy - and the boy we love to see. He terrorizes little Susie, offers "Candid Opinions" from a neighborhood stand, and questions his parents' authority. "What assurance do I have that your parenting isn't screwing me up?" he demands. Calvin and Hobbes manages to say what needs to be said about childhood and life: "Eww, mud," says Calvin. "Look at this gooshy, dirty, slimy, thick, wet mud... Bleecch... Talk about a kid magnet!" Created by Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes has quickly become a favorite in more than 2,300 daily and Sunday newspapers. Recent readership polls show the strip as No. 1 in the Kansas City Star, Salt Lake City Deseret News, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Dallas Morning News, Akron Beacon Journal, and Schedectady Daily Gazette.

    I fumetti di Calvin & Hobbes sono veramente mitici… hanno la capacità di farmi ridere per giorni, solo ripensando a qualche vignetta. La storia è quella di Calvin, bambino vivace, pieno di idee, entusiasmo, sarcasmo e fantasia. In perenne ricerca di un modo per non andare a scuola e convincere i suoi genitori a fargli fare quello che vuole. Hobbes è il suo tigrotto di peluche che, miracolosamente, quando non ci sono adulti nei paraggi, prende vita e diventa il suo inseparabile migliore amico. Consigliatissimo a grandi e piccini!

    Uno tra i tanti di Watterson, tutti bellissimi, senza tempo. Così belli da non far rimpiengere che abbia smesso di farlo (gran gesto, fa parte della bellezza di quello che rimane): basta ricominciare quello che già c'è.

    Letto e guardato con i miei figli. Non tutte le strisce sono belle, alcune mi hanno lasciato perplesso, ma quelle belle sono geniali, ti fanno ridere e pensare.
