      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I was given the Authoritative Calvin & Hobbes when I was twelve, by a friend of mine who's father was on sabbatical in the UK, and who was about to go back to Canada. Calvin & Hobbes was hardly known in the UK, and so I already found the comic good. I was in stitches for the next week or so, while I read the book for the first time. It is hilarious. Being a 12 year old, I couldn't afford to get any of the others for a while, but I used to get a new one for Christmas, or my birthday, so I used to look forward to them even more than normal. I now own a wide selection of the books, but not all of them. I was devastated when I heard that Bill Watterson had retired. There will never be another Calvin and Hobbes... nothing will come close. Calvin & Hobbes is about a six year old boy who has a very overactive imagination. While no-one else is around, his stuffed tiger, Hobbes, comes to life, and joins him in his adventures/games in the yard. Bill Waterson is a witty cartoonist with seemingly unending ideas for hilarious capers. Calvin’s imagination occasionally turns him into 'Spaceman Spiff', a roving spaceman who discovers new planets/life forms, and Gurls... Calvin and Hobbes have a club called G.R.O.S.S. or G.et R.id O.f S.limy girlS., where he and Hobbes argue over club protocol, and try to pelt the local girls with rotten apples. How like childhood.
