Calvin and Hobbes (and another 3DS)

On Friday another package arrived from Amazon. The boy will be getting a 3DS for his birthday along with Ridge Racer 3D and LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.

While I was ordering stuff from Amazon I thought I might as well buy myself The Complete Calvin and Hobbes (it was half price) to go with my Complete Far Side. I had completely forgotten how much these complete-editions weigh. When I picked up the package I nearly dropped it on the floor – it weighed just a bit over 10kg.

It is great reading Calvin and Hobbes again. I am amazed at how consistently great Bill Watterson was. He really hit the ground running and never slowed down – both in regards to writing and drawing.
