Art Spiegleman, starred review,Publishers Weekly. The imaginative world of a boy and his real-only-to-him tiger was first syndicated in 1985 and appeared in more than 2,400 newspapers when Bill Watterson retired on January 1, 1996.
(2) Scientific Progress Goes Boink. With keen insight, Bill Watterson depicted life through the eyes of a child in Calvin and Hobbes with all the inherent fun and frustrations. Calvin and Hobbes touched the hearts (and funny bones) of the millions who read the award-winning strip.
Fans have learned to survive -- despite the absence of the boy and his tiger in the daily newspaper. Calvin fans will be able to see their favorite mischief maker stir it up with his furry friend, long-suffering parents, classmate Susie Derkins, school teacher Miss Wormwood, and Rosalyn the baby-sitter.
