The Complete Calvin and Hobbes

The Complete Calvin and Hobbes

For anyone that grew up reading the funny pages in the 80’s, the characters of Calvin and Hobbes are undeniably etched into our collective conscious. The Complete Calvin and Hobbes ($100, available Oct. 4) catalogs ten years of comic strip genius, and the introduction gives us insight into Bill Watterson’s struggles with the strip, including his fight to keep Calvin’s legacy from being reduced to the “boy who pees on things” stickers. A must have.

  • E-Ville Press Comics

    E-Ville Press is a group of Pixar artists and animators who are independently creating graphic novels based on some very unique ideas. The first comics were unveiled just last month, and we were lucky enough to get a hold of two of the titles. Rose and Isabel by Ted Mathot ($8) is an intriguing story of two sisters who get involved in the Civil War in search of their lost brothers. Colossus by Mark Andrews is a stunning story about a knight's soul trapped in a metal robot-like creature that battles evil in a far away kingdom. Both are done in an equally beautiful style, and would make an excellent addition to any collection or coffee table.
