I don’t own many printed books, but one thing I’ve kept around is The Complete Calvin and Hobbes. I don’t know how long it had been since the last time, but I just read through it again and thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved reading newspaper comics growing up, and Calvin and Hobbes was easily my favorite. It’s been almost twenty-five years since Bill Watterson retired the strip, but his criticisms of modern society have only gotten more relevant. And, of course, it is hilarious.
