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
The Horror Films Starring Vincent Price
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:
Amazon! At the time it was $50 instead of $100. (Paper back but High quality, all of his comics divided into 4 books.

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.
You won't be sorry.
Only $52.99 for the paperback collection on Amazon ($105 for hardcover)
The full collection's here, I'd just get it and start reading: https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Calvin-Hobbes-BOX-SET/dp/1449433251
THIS one. I believe it contains every strip ever published in the papers.

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

I think this it it. Not OP though so it might not be the right thing.
Mine is a 4 volume set, but it's this one
Worth every penny.
Start with a tuna fish sandwich.
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.
This is the complete set in paper back. It is 50 bucks cheaper than it was in Barnes and Noble last week.
this is sitting on my work desk right in front of me, in fact

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!
"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:
Softcover is 57 USD
Hardcover is 74 USD
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)
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.
I was referring to this published compilation of the entire comic series.
$59 right now.

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.
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.
For the Canadians: $84 for it paperback, $154 for hardback :-(
I bought this set, it's pretty boss.
I just got my Complete Collection yesterday!!! SOOO EXCITEDDD.

Own it, Love it. Read it every year and still enjoy it as much as when i got it. (Was a Christmas present from my wife a while back.)
Get them all if you can. The paperback set is on Amazon for $52
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] (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Calvin-Hobbes-Bill-Watterson/dp/1449433251/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&amp;colid=3JA6KLL8ILJ0V&amp;coliid=I1RER00RYGB3YB) is the first thing i'm buying when I magically have 100$ for whatever reason.

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!
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.
This is one of my most prized possessions.
The complete Calvin and Hobbes is always good for the aspiring genius. The hardcover edition is honestly beautiful.
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.

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? http://www.amazon.com/The-Complete-Calvin-Hobbes-BOX/dp/1449433251.
Dead tree edition? Here.
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.
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 Amazon.ca. The current price for the paperback set is $62.70 CDN (37% off the list price of $100 CDN).
Meh, nothing beats the boxed set: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1449433251
I paid full price when it first came out. No regrets.
