    This series starts with Calvin laughing and cheerful that he s finally free from prison read school , just to find out that someone is following him.None other than Susie and at that moment we know we should get ready for some grossiness of Get Rid Of Slimy girlS G.R.O.S.S Calvin goes on getting at the nerves of Susie Hobbes and he fight a lot, which is way too funny It s delightful to watch them argue doing homework together and reading comics Thinking of his teacher as a giant larva, e This series starts with Calvin laughing and cheerful that he s finally free from prison read school , just to find out that someone is following him.None other than Susie and at that moment we know we should get ready for some grossiness of Get Rid Of Slimy girlS G.R.O.S.S Calvin goes on getting at the nerves of Susie Hobbes and he fight a lot, which is way too funny It s delightful to watch them argue doing homework together and reading comics Thinking of his teacher as a giant larva, eating everything that came before her was hilarious Being the last book of this series, it washumorous than anything else Calvin with his winter jacket is cuteness personified In the end, when Calvin and Hobbes hug, it makes me laugh out loud His mischief in this book has crossed all the limits

    Calvin and Hobbes was so important to me when I was younger, and still is important It really is in its own little catergory It breaks my heart that Watterson left after this book but in an understanding way It is so rare that someone knows how to retire while they are at their peak and let their art stand on its own I have this last strip in this book pinned up on my wall at work to remind me as I came here and started over, that it s a magical world out there.

    Yet another among the books published by Bill Watterson from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip that I have enjoyed This one is from the beginning of the C H comic strip, and I own a framed print of that first strip When Calvin tells Hobbes, It s a magical worldlets go exploring it speaks powerfully to me on several levels That print hangs in my office, and has become a reminder to me of the importance of discovering what I don t yet know, of the need to ask important questions and find Yet another among the books published by Bill Watterson from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip that I have enjoyed This one is from the beginning of the CH comic strip, and I own a framed print of that first strip When Calvin tells Hobbes, It s a magical worldlets go exploring it speaks powerfully to me on several levels That print hangs in my office, and has become a reminder to me of the importance of discovering what I don t yet know, of the need to ask important questions and find their answers.My children have literally worn out these collections of CH comics, and with good reason CH is a unique blend of homespun philosophy, side splitting humor, and insight into the human child and adult condition Watterson s insights into, and sly digs at, various social, familial, and other institutions of modern life are masterful

    Some people never forget what they were doing when they heard about a historic event or the death of someone famous as for myself I ll always remember where I was when I read the last ever Calvin and Hobbes strip in the paper.

    About as good as it gets, even through nostalgia goggles More introspection,musings on where the world is going spot on, Bill old son but still some time for Spaceman Spiff, and Stupendous Man And if I d known then that there would be no next year s book I d have had a quiet moment after that last hurrah.

    The final volume of Calvin and Hobbes might just be the very best The flights of fantasy are far fewer here, which is usually something I do not care for I always wantedof Spiff and Tracer That is because Watterson s mundane stories often had a slice of life sentimentality that I found wanting There is little of that here Hobbes is a faradversarial figure in the strip in general than it is given credit for and in particular here The slice of life isabout making a point W The final volume of Calvin and Hobbes might just be the very best The flights of fantasy are far fewer here, which is usually something I do not care for I always wantedof Spiff and Tracer That is because Watterson s mundane stories often had a slice of life sentimentality that I found wanting There is little of that here Hobbes is a faradversarial figure in the strip in general than it is given credit for and in particular here The slice of life isabout making a point Watterson is trying to give us his view on where we were going As far as predictions go, he was sadly accurate.It s a Magical World proves an old adage of mine know when to quit We often stretch out ideas and stories until they become dull Watterson, already taking on darker themes in There s Treasure Everywhere, goes much further here Existential dread is common Most telling is his early jibes at the Internet, which was only then just arriving Other commentaries are about technologically induced isolation, consumerism, the coarsening of political discourse, and the triumph of money There was always a smattering of social commentary in Calvin and Hobbes but here it is on overdrive He even mentions the vapid nostalgia machine It almost overwhelms the strip, but it still remains true to its heart It is also consistently funny Yet, the title of this one is partially a lie The magic of the world is mostly absent Calvin has to go look for it in nature and with Hobbes, less content it seems to simply pretend to be a dinosaur It s a Magical World came when other things I grew up with were ending with the advent of the Internet and media mergers WGNO 26, action films not based on comics, Married with Children, and Saturday morning cartoons Kids played outside back then They also read the funnies if Watterson were working today he would go unnoticed The world was shifting towards the one I know now computerized, polarized, and evenfast paced Indeed, much of this volume is about how Americans fail to enjoy life Reading this strip, because of its biting wit and perspective, is not mere nostalgia It s a Magical World is vaguely prescient.Watterson chose the perfect time to bow out Unlike Charles Schulz and Jim Davis and many people lesser than Schulz Watterson did not beat it into the ground Indeed, so much of the final pages are about trying new things, avoiding stale repetition To read this book now I did not read it back then is to feel nostalgic, thoughtful, sad, and happy Watterson pressed all the buttons here He ended the strip with a bang
