They aren't cheap, but they're worth it

I'd recommend the (slightly) cheaper paperback versions if they are for kids since kids are good at destroying good things you love.

> I think Michael Bay was quoted somewhere saying he made movies more geared to teenage boys.

First off, let me state that I really don't care what people watch. I look at Michael Bay films as safely constructed roller coasters. As seen here the man has learned what bumps, twists, and turns he can use to engage an audience without challenging it. He reuses scenes and ideas in a way that no one ever notices and I think is a brilliant(if nihilistic) way to see guaranteed money.

Now, let me explain why I hate the, "I make movies for teenage boys" defense. It is completely dismissive of all the great art that has been made for adolescents. Seriously, most people don't stop and think about this, but there is some pretty incredible stuff out there. Here is a small list of some of the amazing work made for children and teens:

The Red Balloon

The Works of Winsor Mccay

Calvin and Hobbes

Looney Tunes

Princess Mononoke

Star Wars

The Horror Films Starring Vincent Price

Scott Pilgrim

Fullmetal Alchemist

People use the quote you supplied as a get out of jail free card for valid criticism and it drives me nuts. Like what ever you feel like, but don't be dismissive of discussion because of a pointless quote.

Right there with ya, Garfield, Calvin & Hobbes, and Farside. Boy, I must have read through those collections so many times. One of my first purchases as an adult in my first apartment was the hard bound Calvin & Hobbes collection.

Some gift ideas that have gone over well in the past:

  • Standing flashlight - great for a DIYer
  • Turkish Towel - I use it heavily when traveling. It's a plane wrap, a picnic blanket, a quick coverup, seriously worth packing.
  • An amazing spatula. I love it. Great for any cooks or bakers.
  • If you have an older female relative who likes kitchen stuff, go to Walmart and grab some stuff from the Pioneer Woman. It's cute, it's functional and my mother-in-law loves the stuff. Ree annoys me but she makes it easy to Christmas shop.
  • Teen girls can be tricky. Buy a pair or two of BaubleBar (or BaubleBar for Target) earrings, buy this earring case and now you have a 2 for 1.
  • You should buy some Yak sticks for your dog. Costco also has some great Nylabone and Kong gift packs.
  • Every adult male I know loves this temperature gun.
  • Every newlywed lady I know wants the Chrissy Teigen cookbooks.
  • This throw is the softest thing ever. I have 3.
  • Cute couple's gift (also works for a family member who is bringing someone to Christmas who you feel obligated to gift to but you know little about them): Picnic blanket. You can even add a basket and fill it with wine or cocoa and cookies. Or just gift them a gift card to a cozy restaurant.
  • This Calvin and Hobbes collection is the best gift I received last year. And it's cheaper than it used to be.

    Also, here's my link to a review on here of Etsy/ArtfullyWalls/Society6 artists in case you want to shop for yourself/others with the upcoming sales.

u/Hattusa · 12 pointsr/shittyaskalawyer

You actually bring up a very interesting point and it's something most people don't realize about the law.

In court, you're technically bound by whatever law you swear on. Since our legal system's based on English common law, which is roughly Judeo-Christian, the Bible's the default.

But that actually becomes part of the problem with Gitmo. All the terrorists there want to swear on the Koran, binding them with Sharia law. And under that law, killing infidels is nbd, so they'd be free to go. To counter that we're playing the waiting game, not giving them trials until they fold and agree to swear on something else. We're hoping to haggle them down to at least the Talmud, maybe the Vedas.

Now you're suggesting swearing on Wonder Woman's lasso of truth, in comic form. Let me tell you, that's a losing strategy. Not only does that require you to tell the truth, but if things go wrong you could end up in some kinky bondage situation.

Here's what I recommend instead: swear on a copy of Calvin and Hobbes. Congratulations, now you are bound by the laws of Calvinball.

And in Calvinball, you make the rules.

u/jcbouche · 10 pointsr/daddit

Only $52.99 for the paperback collection on Amazon ($105 for hardcover)

u/Sweetmilk_ · 10 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

The full collection's here, I'd just get it and start reading:

u/RustonStrong · 9 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

THIS one. I believe it contains every strip ever published in the papers.

u/Tendies_Comrade · 8 pointsr/ChapoTrapHouse

They have a big collected edition with everything in it. It’s $50 which isn’t terrible for getting all your books back.

u/Rygar82 · 7 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

That sucks. You can buy them all back pretty cheap. The Complete Calvin and Hobbes

u/NotJohnCalvin · 7 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

Hardcover appears to be out of print now but softcover:

u/maqsarian · 6 pointsr/comicstriphistory

I have that big orange four-volume hardcover Calvin and Hobbes omnibus, and it's amazing, with annotations and all sorts of extra material. I'm pretty sure it's the only birthday or Christmas present that I've actually asked for in my adult life.

u/nurriz · 6 pointsr/boardgames

I got this last christmas. Just get it. It's awesome :)

u/retnuh730 · 6 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

I think this it it. Not OP though so it might not be the right thing.

u/airon0828 · 5 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

As a C&H fan I suggest to just invest in the entire set so it's easy to read anytime you wish. I got the hardcover way back when it came out but there is a paperback version now.

u/ch41n54w · 4 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

This is the complete set in paper back. It is 50 bucks cheaper than it was in Barnes and Noble last week.

u/TAKEitTOrCIRCLEJERK · 4 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

this is sitting on my work desk right in front of me, in fact

u/Airick86 · 4 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Yay! First contest is always a blast. I just had mine a couple of days ago on my Bday!

My actual cheapest item is an Add-On item. So if we're counting that then here it is

Cheapest item would be The Last Samurai

Something else that I want would be Assassin's Creed IV
Calvin and Hobbes!

u/mpaw975 · 3 pointsr/graphicnovels

"In bulk" is kind of a funny criterion. Do you ever hear someone asking for a really long book? I think you'll find that the GNs on the sidebar are all amazing, even though they don't come in a large collection.

That being said, I think the complete Bone collection is decently priced ($22 !!). The paperback version of the complete Calvin & Hobbes looks to be priced insanely cheaply ($62) for the quality. It also looks like you can get the entire Y: The Last Man collection for $100.

I've built my collection (relatively) cheaply as follows:

  • Get a list of the main books you want in your collection

  • Check their prices on amazon to get an idea of their usual retail price and their sale price (which in many cases is %50 to %66 of the sticker price)

  • Check your local used book store. (This is usually the cheapest option)

  • Check the bargain bins at the big book stores. (You can sometimes get a real steal)

  • Repeat these last two steps over and over.

  • If you really want something break down and get it on Amazon.

  • I rarely buy books from big book stores at retail price. I can't bring myself to pay 40$+ for a volume of Akira that is printed on newspaper. Argh!

  • If I am going to pay full price for a comic I make sure that I buy it from my local comic shop.

Or do like I did, and ask for the super-deluxo complete C&H box set for Christmas. (Quick brag: Also have The Complete Far Side)

u/super_dork · 3 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

For the price, you can't go wrong with the whole boxed set. I'm hoping for it for Father's Day this year.

The Complete Calvin & Hobbes see yourself as a kid again.

u/Jacques_Cormery · 3 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

I was referring to this published compilation of the entire comic series.

u/ShhDontTalk · 2 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

According to the reviews on amazon, the pages are glued to the spine, so they will eventually fall apart if you use it often =/

Happy new years you nerd!

Pretty much all my days off/holidays involve hanging out with my family, or playing videogames, or both. I got some cool pony toys and such, and the best book ever. Calvin & Hobbes is my favorite comic of all time. I feel I kind of suck at giving, I'm not overly creative and I was quite limited this year. Mainly because of the amount of money I spent on the wife already earlier in the year.

u/xenobuzz · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

Buy the glorious, hardbound, two-volume Complete Collection.

Watterston wrote all the text and provides a fascinating account of the struggles he endured on his way to creating Calvin and Hobbes and his unwavering, Herculean commitment to keep the strip pure despite an appalling alliance of greedy corporate cocksuckers who wanted to Brock Turner one of the greatest comics in modern history.

I bought this set a few months ago, sat down one morning on my couch is a soft, warm terrycloth robe and just cried while I turned the pages.

u/NicJitsu · 2 pointsr/calvinandhobbes

For the Canadians: $84 for it paperback, $154 for hardback :-(

I have this...

And I can't wait to buy my son his own, so I can keep mine forever.

I'm 33, and it's still one of my prized possessions.

But seriously, the [Calvin and Hobbes box set] ( is the first thing i'm buying when I magically have 100$ for whatever reason.

Go to hell item: This ski hat perhaps?

Wavin My dick: Nothing! Suck it, Sigmund! But this tube must count, right?

Of 0s and 1s :Keyboard, definitely!

To solve world hunger, I need: Hmm, this book?

Pack this, Robinson:This is a toughie. I have a guitar, a Calvin and Hobbes, and a few drawing stuff. I think the Calvin and Hobbes would be best to curb the punishing loneliness.

Every item but the book are in the general Wl, the book, naturally is in the books WL!

u/piconet-2 · 1 pointr/calvinandhobbes

Paperback's $59.55 (List price $100). Hardcover's out of stock but it's usually around $99. I'd suggest paperback cos it's easier to open and read. I collected the collections - There's something absolutely gorgeous about Bill Watterson's watercolor covers.

u/JasonUncensored · 1 pointr/Fallout

This is one of my most prized possessions.

u/Inquisitr · 1 pointr/hearthstone

The complete Calvin and Hobbes is always good for the aspiring genius. The hardcover edition is honestly beautiful.

u/Alcubierre · 1 pointr/calvinandhobbes

My dad introduced me to Calvin and Hobbes, and I got him The Complete Calvin and Hobbes a couple of years ago for Christmas. Every time I'm back home, I read it cover to cover.

u/vespertinism · 1 pointr/calvinandhobbes

So I took a look at the set I got at costco and it's a 4 book paperback set so I think it's different than OPs, but I found this link

Unless he's the girl says "sure" when you have any doubts that he wastes some of the world. But is it strange that he overperformed relative to the caverns too, but it probably hurts them to check Twitter during a time traveller, coming from /r/hotlinemiami will understand. edit: It's a big deal to replace chalkboards?

u/Ayatollah_Bahloni · 1 pointr/funny

Start here.

Dead tree edition? Here.

u/another_dude_01 · 1 pointr/Reformed

Having these on my bookshelf (Xmas gift a few years back) next to my warfield and machen collections keeps me warm and filled.

My kids are avid readers as well, finding what they want to read and plugging them in with that, is key, indeed.

Grace and peace.

u/ShotFromGuns · 1 pointr/calvinandhobbes

Oh, sure. First you cripple us with your freezing polar vortexes, and then you mock us with your cheaper Calvin & Hobbes collections.

Actually, I'm not sure what you're looking at on The current price for the paperback set is $62.70 CDN (37% off the list price of $100 CDN).

u/ChristianGeek · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

Meh, nothing beats the boxed set:

I paid full price when it first came out. No regrets.
