I wish I had a camera with me at the time, but I saw this little girl dragging a toy tiger that was the exact size and scale of Calvin’s tiger Hobbes. A couple of years ago, when I used to live in Drumheller, AB (Canada), a friend recommended that I take out The Complete Clavin and Hobbes from the Drumheller Public Library. Almost as ubiquitous as Peanuts, Watterson’s syndicated strip Calvin and Hobbes graced newspaper comic pages for years. It’s about a mischievous (or Chaotic Evil) little boy, his toy tiger and their adventures. Fantastic. 5 chainsaws.

“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
