Calvin and Hobbes

My favorite comic-book series ever is Calvin and Hobbes. They are about a hyper-active 6-year old, Calvin, and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes. Throughout the book, which is more like Garfield than Spider-Man or something, Calvin imagines that Hobbes is a real tiger, and is his best friend. However, he is the only one who has such an active imagination, and whenever someone else is near by, Hobbes is just a stuffed toy tiger.Some comics show Calvin and Hobbes just talking about something sorta random, but having one of them say something at eh end to make it funny. Others include Calvin bugging his parents, waging war against his evil babysitter, Rosalyn, or playing/annoying his classmate, Susie. All of these are insanely funny.

I learned about Calvin and Hobbes from my dad. He owned a few of them as a kid, and we found them while cleaning out old boxes. I got 2 or 3 books like that, but others I found in stores. Now, I own 10, and I'm only missing one. If you ever get a chance to read or buy a Calvin and Hobbes book, you should definitely get one. Some titles there are, are Calvin and Hobbes, Something Under the Bed is Drooling, Yukon Ho!, Weirdos from Another Planet, Revenge of the Baby-Sat, Scientific Progress Goes Boink, Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons, Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat, The Days are Just Packed, It's A Magical World, and There's Treasure Everywhere. They are HILARIOUS!
