"A new kind of Calvinism"

"People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children." Calvin

A review, at Books & Culture, of The Complete Calvin and Hobbes:
... It's the work of ten years, once at a peak circulation of 2,400 newspapers, 3,160 strips in all, first collected in 17 books with 30 million copies already in print, now assembled in a 22-and-a-half pound, three-volume set running to 1,440 pages. Every strip -from the beginning in November 1985 to the last day of 1995 — plus every cover from the individual collections, as well as the bonus material in the treasury collections, finds its place here. ...
It is rather expensive and I probably won't get it, but it looks great. Calvin and Hobbes are indispensable.
