Watterson has also developed “The Calvin and Hobbes Portable Compendium,” which features an all-new design of the bestselling “Calvin and Hobbes” collections. The new portable format will introduce a new generation of readers to the timeless classic adventures of Calvin and Hobbes. The first set of two volumes, which is part of a series of seven sets, is set for release on August 29, 2023.

The accessible and transportable format offers readers a whole new experience to enjoy the classic adventures of the comic strip. The entire series boasts a colorful theme of Calvin and Hobbes dancing across the spines of the volumes, making it a welcome and exuberant addition to any family bookshelf.

“Calvin and Hobbes” collections have sold over 50 million copies worldwide and remain one of the most popular and treasured comic strips of all time.
