Welcome, you've come to the place where Calvin and Hobbes® once were honored with a great tribute and fan-site, "Calvin and Hobbes at Martijn's". Unfortunately the copyright owners didn't agree with that and made me shutdown the entire site. The biggest success of the site was the Calvin and Hobbes Strip Search, which received thousands of visitors every single day.

I want to thank for all your visits and nice comments. I've received hundreds of emails because of this shutdown; thanks for all the nice comments! It would take way too much time to reply to all of them, so don't think I don't read them. I've read every single one of them and appreciate your comments.

If you want, you can send me an email as well.

On this page are the available Calvin and Hobbes books. Dates are from comparison of strips clipped from newspapers since 1986 as well as checking newspaper microfilm for 1985/86 strips. First date is publication date of the book itself. Sunday strips in the compilation volumes are in color. In the regular books from 1987 to 1992, they are in black and white. 1993-96 books are in a larger format, to accommodate the full sunday strips, which are printed in color.

This set of books collects ALL of Calvin and Hobbes for 11/18/85, the date of the first strip, through 12/31/95, with the exception of the strip which appeared in some papers on 11/28/85. The strip that appears in the books (and in Comic Relief, a book reprinting the strips from the Thanksgiving Hunger Project) did not run in all newspapers. Some newspapers ran a strip in which Hobbes gets a bath in the washing machine. In the books, the replacement strip has Calvin ordering pizza after being sent to his room. The strip for 6/3/95 appears in There's Treasure Everywhere as well as It's a Magical World. Calvin and Hobbes ended with the sunday strip for 12/31/95.

Thanks to Chris Anderson for the information above.

New Calvin and Hobbes book

Click on picture to enlarge
A new book called Calvin and Hobbes: Sunday Pages 1985-1995 is published by Andrews & McMeel. Unfortunately it does not not contain any new strips. Bill Watterson's 36 favorite Sunday pages are in it, along with Watterson's comment about the creation of each strip. The price is $10.36 (now at Amazon.com, 20% off!).

Some more Calvin and Hobbes publications can be expected in the fall of 2003.

Thanks to Bernard DeVille and Harold the Cow for bringing this to my attention!
