    aPriL does feral sometimes

    I am an old woman, so I have read literally thousands of comics. 'Calvin and Hobbes' are the best comics I have ever read. If I wasn't planning on cremation, I would ask to be buried with a 'Calvin and Hobbes' book. (Second choice would be 'Doonesbury'.)

    Last few days I've spent on getting to know Calvin and Hobbes, reading all I could put my hands or lay my eyes on :) This is definitely my favourite issue, specifically the snow goons part and the Duplicator fun :) I've read this over a Thursday morning coffee and I just felt sorry afterwards that I rushed to read it all asap. My personal highlight was the: "Hobbes, do you think our morality is defined by our actions, or by what's in our hearts? I think our actions SHOW what's in our hearts."

"I RESENT THAT!" :D :D

    I don’t know if a family, much less a childhood, without Calvin and Hobbes would be complete. Frankly, once it stopped being published, my newspaper readership dropped off significantly. Everyone needs to smile, needs a little imagination in their life, and needs a little bit of Calvin and Hobbes. And if anyone is up for a game of Calvinball, just give me a call.

    2020: still delightful! I love how Hobbes is a stuffed animal when others are around. Calvin’s shenanigans in the snow are hysterical!

    This one is maybe a little darker than what went before. But still hilarious, true and beautifully drawn.

    Calvin is an academic underachiever, rebel, performance artist, disgruntled philosopher, and all-around bringer of chaos--although his playmate/rival Susie refers to him as "the incurable weirdness poster child." Whether discovering a new dinosaur species (the "Calvinosaurus") or evading the dreaded monster under the bed, Calvin is hilarious. "Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons" refers to one of these story lines in which Calvin creates a mutant snow man which in turn create Calvin is an academic underachiever, rebel, performance artist, disgruntled philosopher, and all-around bringer of chaos--although his playmate/rival Susie refers to him as "the incurable weirdness poster child." Whether discovering a new dinosaur species (the "Calvinosaurus") or evading the dreaded monster under the bed, Calvin is hilarious. "Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons" refers to one of these story lines in which Calvin creates a mutant snow man which in turn creates an army of similar creatures. Other story lines involve Calvin getting chicken pox; his creation of his own TV show; and his club known as GROSS (a warped acronym for "Get Rid Of Slimy girlS"). Last but not least, Calvin builds a human duplicating machine out of a cardboard box, and he makes a special copy of himself that represents everything good in him. His plan is to make his flawless duplicate do all of his homework and chores, while he himself gets all the credit. Everything goes fine for a while, until his duplicate develops a crush on Suzie, making him look bad. Hilarity ensues. The Calvin and Hobbes stories are great because they are funny celebrations of the power of a child's imagination. Calvin assumes such alternate identities as sci-fi hero Spaceman Spiff, caped superhero Stupendous Man, and private eye Tracer Bullet. Often the humor comes from the clash of Calvin's fantasies with the reality around him. The stuffed Hobbes, through the power of Calvin's imagination, becomes both a comrade and a great foil for the boy; their wacky relationship is one of the most memorable in the comic strip genre. I guarantee that anyone that loves comics will fall in love with this one and should definitely buy this book to start their collection of classic comics. Best comic ever in my opinion.

    If there's ever a moment when you want to laugh and smile, just ask the help of Calvin and his best friend Hobbes. You can never go wrong.

    This book is my favorite in the series. The title is very promising, and you get a lot of Calvin’s snowmen indeed. Hobbes is amazing: he is skeptical, sarcastic, and infinitely wise. Furthermore, he takes advantage of his feral self against Calvin a lot... Calvin’s duplicator is a fantastic invention. Completing it with an Ethicator makes it more effective, creating the good side of Calvin.

    I love, love>, LOVE every Calvin and Hobbes book, and especially this one, with all the creative snowman stuff. Who needs it to be Halloween to get creative with scary yard art? Not Calvin! Great title, by the way. Not just killer

    Only Calvin could see advantages in being sick and having to stay away from other kids. And away from school. Calvin's bitter enemy surfaces in this volume: the deadly bicicle. It's amazing to which lengths he goes to to explain his bad behavior near Christmas. He's such a victim of circumstance. The PI story is hilarious and riddled with mysoginistic references like any good pulp novel should be. He is adorable when he breaks the fourth wall. I'm so glad I picked up this collection.

    Great collection of strips that id never read before. Novels and bios are great, but a good collection of comic strips like this is an easier read, whether it's a single story strip or stretches out over a few. The humor for this strip is always funny, I wish it still ran in newspapers.

    “Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons” is a delightful Calvin and Hobbes collection with lots of strips and storylines that focus on winter activities. There are quite a few of the famous philosophical sled rides with Calvin and Hobbes careening down dangerous hills while pondering some of the most significant aspects of our daily lives. Also included in this collection were the strips featuring Calvin being “attacked” by his bike, coincidently while he is learning to ride it. “Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons” is a delightful Calvin and Hobbes collection with lots of strips and storylines that focus on winter activities.

Some favorite storylines also reappear, including the the second appearance of Calvin’s duplicator machine, and a storyline featuring Calvin’s caustic film noir private eye. “Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons” is perfect reading while a snowstorm rages outside. As usual with a Calvin and Hobbes collection I found myself laughing and thinking at the same time. I enjoy when that happens! I can always count on Calvin and Hobbes to make me laugh, and to tease my brain cells a little. I love them, and these collections, for that!

    Calvin's snow creations are still one of my favorite things. And the fact that I continue to want to believe Calvin is real and not just a creation of Bill is a testament to his work.

Chronologically, Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Snow Goons comes first (I'll be reading Homicidal Jungle Cat soon enough). Despite what my shelves were announcing to the world until I finally corrected this gross oversight, every collection of this comic strip is essential (and authoritative, and indispensable). This happened, in part, because of those omnibus collections alluded to above, which Bill Watterson quit putting out just before this particular one was published, and I just plain didn't notice. As an acknowledged fan of Watterson's work for nearly three decades, it's unlikely that I was reading the material for the first time, but I've been reading these collections as a treasured pastime for so long (I pity readers who never got to experience first-run Calvin in the papers), it makes a fine excuse to do so all over again, as if for the first time. But I've done a considerable amount of experiencing the world since my earlier days reading Watterson's masterpiece. These days I find myself working with kids, and so I think a great deal about their perspective, how they view the world, and their relationship to those around them, whether it's their parents or various social acquaintances. And I can't help but see with fresh eyes, how Calvin relates to his parents, for instance. You don't need to have recent experience with kids to understand how exasperated Calvin's parents always tended to be. But you might begin to interpret it differently, and how Calvin as we know him came to be, if you do. I've come to the conclusion that the only logical, rational way to view kids is to treat them like they're...every bit as human as you are. Some parents (I could insert, here, fictional statistics I suspect to be on the higher end of the scale) seem to view kids mostly as burdens. It's not hard to view Calvin's parents as part of that trend. Calvin spends virtually all of his time on his own, regardless of how you interpret the existence of his best friend Hobbes. He has no ordinary friendships (and to even suggest that Susie Derkins is what we might today call a "frenemy" would grossly [heh] misinterpret their relationship, even if it can be interpreted as latent romantic attraction), and he doesn't seem to have either parent willingly spend time with him (except, in the primary running gag of this volume, in the traditional childhood rite of learning to ride a bicycle, or in Calvin's case, survive its various attempts to murder you). I actually began to view Hobbes, theoretically, as a metaphorical version of an older sibling we otherwise never see, one who perhaps is much older, ten years more, something like that. It would explain, for instance, why their dynamic can be viewed variably as a companion who is both taller than Calvin and the same size or smaller, because this sibling is the only person in Calvin's life who's willing or capable of understanding him, even though they have different viewpoints and Hobbes frequently seems just as interested in rejecting him (the pouncing) as going along with all his schemes, or even romancing a girl. Anyway, you don't need to theorize to enjoy Watterson's wonders. As I grew older, I began to realize how much of his ideas were traditionally reactionary (TV is eeeevil), the kind the Berenstains were handling with cartoon bears long before and long after him, but handled in such a way that, because of Calvin's isolation, were refracted through a unique lens that could look beyond even Watterson's own persnickety opinions about commercialization and the continued viability of his chosen art medium (which he himself, most ironically, eventually abandoned). Calvin, and Hobbes, is such a concentrated presence, going far beyond a simple gag character intended to produce reliable results, that he almost instantly transcended the medium. He became a new Huck Finn, a new Holden Caulfield, even Boo Radley. A lot of fans have ended up misinterpreting him (the pissing decal is as close to slander as it gets), but Calvin, and whatever he would ultimately become (and let's face it, he became Bill Watterson, right?), is what he always was: his own person. So of course he's desperately needed now more than ever, snow goons and/or wild imaginations and all.
