‘Calvin and Hobbes’ ebooks now available for the first time

Almost 30 years after Bill Watterson introduced the world to Calvin and Hobbes, one of the most beloved daily comic strips is finally available as a collection of ebooks. It’s not quite the full series, which is available as a giant multi-volume book, but the ebooks on offer cover a fairly large range of strips. There are three in total: The Essential Calvin and Hobbes, The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes, and The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes, each of which was previously released as a regular book.

Why the ebooks couldn’t be released in numbered volumes is anyone’s guess, but even with the obtuse naming, the trio still offer up a wider range of content than was previously available on mobile devices. Until now, the only way to (legally) get Calvin and Hobbes on a mobile device was through comic book apps like GoComics. You’ll be able to find each book on a range of popular ebook stores, including Amazon’s Kindle store, Apple’s iBooks store, and Barnes & Noble’s Nook store — they’re not on Google Play Books yet.
