This is my first copy of Calvin and Hobbes comics as a book and I am thoroughly thrilled to have my hands lay on it I have always been an ardent lover of Bill Watterson s creativity, passion and beautiful sense of values which has taught still teaching the wonder beneath the quotidian life This book is a valued possession which I know that I would cherish for a lifetime and perhaps add it in my Will and pass it on to the next generations to come. Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us CalvinCalvin s wit keeps amazing me I m glad I get the funny

comic which ran in boxes of four or sometimes luxuriously filling up half of the page had been featured in most comic sections for as far as I can read, and had been the company of most readers of newspaper There are a few compilations of Calvin and Hobbes comics and Weirdos from Another Planet is one of them.Calvin was by no means crazy, just an imaginative kid who spends most of his intellect trying to get his own way with his family and friends, not unlike what most of us did in our childhood His mischievous yet creative ways always made me laughed, and along with Hobbes, he made the people around him crawl up the wall literally In our childhood, how many of us did not spend time trying to think of a way or excuse trying to bend the adults reasoning to our side in order to get that piece of dessert that we longed for And how many of them ended up not knowing whether they should be mad or they should laugh A praise to Watterson the ironic and funny monologues and conversations usually carried with them the reality of the world For example, Calvin decided to leave Earth for Mars because he came to the conclusion that adults were leaving the Earth dirty so that the next generation will clean up after them.The art used in the comics is also varied, with different styles meant for different imagined scenario Watterson s style preferred the simple, with buttoned eyes and a few strokes to get the statement across the comic In dramatic moments, he leaned heavily to exaggerated styles, with large eyes and hairs that stood upright to show shock, and large gaping mouth to show anger.The collection really did make my eveningenjoyable, and I still took it out to read once in a while although I had read it numerous times Calvin and Hobbes Weirdos from Another Planet is definitely a recommended reading for you when you are down and depressed I can always depend on Calvin and Hobbes to lighten the mood and provide lots of laughs Weirdos From

Calvin is a wonderful mix of an incredibly intelligent six year old boy who can ask about the meaning of life and yet still enjoy hours of cartoons on tv while eating his favorite cereal, Sugar Coated Chocolate Bombs Hobbes, his constant companion, sometimes tries to steer Calvin towards making smarter choices, but usually they both end up doing something awful wrecking havoc in the living room by playing baseball Is Hobbes imaginary Is he real I say he s a magical tiger who comes alive when alone with Calvin I think we could all use a little Hobbes in our lives I don t want to make Calvin Hobbes political in fact, I pulled it from the shelf because I knew it wouldn t be , but there s an ongoing joke throughout this collection that is eerily well suited to Trump s administration Calvin tells his father that if he wants to be re elected to the office of Dad, he has to bring up his poll numbers He tells his father your recognition factor is high but the scandals of your administration continue to haunt you He continues to advise his father See, your record in office is miserable and the character issue is killing you if anyone ever needed a slick ad campaign, it s you I think the image we need to create for you is, repentant, but learning You know, show some humility, and present yourself as a regular guy trying to learn the ropes of a difficult job 28 Whenever Trump screws up which is often , his supporters and apologists say this very same thing Uh, it s a tough job and he has a steep learning curve Really Being President of the USA is difficult Who woulda thought Anyway, when I read these panels, I immediately saw their relevancy to the current political climate Of course, the scandals Calvin s dad is dealing with are homeworkgate and bedtimegate Muchbenign than potentially treasonous collusion with Russia.What really made me laugh like a loon in public were the panels describing Calvin trying to be helpful by fixing a leaking faucet but not turning the water off first As the bathroom is flooding, he s walking downstairs to get as many buckets as he can find He s not pictured in the panels, just his parents, and the expressions on their faces gradually getalarmed as they listen to him Nothing s wrong da dee doo ba I just want a bucket to hold some stuff Let s see, how many buckets do we have Dum de doo No cause for alarm No need to panic I just want a few buckets La la 80 I love Calvin Of course when Dad comes running upstairs and sees the mess, Calvin blames Hobbes What a great friend Anyway, if you need some laughter, I recommend anything Calvin Hobbes They re delightful Many thanks to Bill Watterson for creating them Calvin is one kid that no one would ever want to try to raise, and Hobbes is one stuffed tiger that no one would ever want to mess with But these two always have their fun, and they sure do have a hell of a lot of adventures mostly with Calvin s parents camping, going to the zoo, digging for dinosaur bones, going to Mars, being lifted up in the stratosphere by a balloon, fixing the bathroom sink among others The list is always endless with this duo There are tons of philosophical, satiri Calvin is one kid that no

mostly with Calvin s parents camping, going to the zoo, digging for dinosaur bones, going to Mars, being lifted up in the stratosphere by a balloon, fixing the bathroom sink among others The list is always endless with this duo There are tons of philosophical, satirical, ironic, and even slapstick humor all around Calvin counters with words as relevant today as in 1988, because,Life s a lotfun when you re not responsible for your actions This collection of cartoons is funny, imaginative and is an exaggerated view of the life of a child There is no question in my mind that Watterson was an imaginative child and probably got in a lot of serious trouble during that time We should be grateful for that, as he grew up to be an outstanding cartoonist and this book proof of that Book Details
