The only catch is that the box set is backordered. It’ll ship as soon as Amazon gets more in stock, but placing the order now locks in the sale price (which I wouldn’t imagine will last much longer, considering the stock shortage). You won’t be charged until it ships.
This deal actually makes the hardcover set cheaper than the paperback version, though the paperback version qualifies for a Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale Amazon has going now and the hardcover version doesn’t. Your call.
Created by Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes ran from 1985 to 1995. It’s about a boy named Calvin (who’s something of a troublemaker) and his stuffed-animal tiger that comes to life in Calvin’s imagination. All told, Calvin and Hobbes appeared in over 2,400 newspapers during its run.
This high-quality collection is comprised of three hardcover books, in full color where appropriate, that fit nicely in a sturdy slipcover case. The entire run of the syndicated series is here, presented over 1440 pages. It’s a gorgeous collection of what I consider the best comic strip of all time. You won’t likely find another deal this good on this collection anytime soon.
