‘Calvin and Hobbes’ Enters the Digital Marketplace in Ebook Form



The undisputed kings of childlike imagination and wonder, Calvin and Hobbes, have just become more accessible to the connected generation. Publishing company Andrews McMeel has released the three major Calvin and Hobbes collections to Barnes & Noble’s Nook store, Amazon’s Kindle store and the Apple iBooks store.

The three new volumes of Bill Watterson’s classic comics are The Essential Calvin and Hobbes, The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes, and The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes, each of which are also available in physical form. Prices vary depending on the store, but the official listing is $12.99 per book. The mother load of Calvin and Hobbes lore, The Complete Calvin and Hobbes, is not yet available for download.

Previously, digital copies of these comic compilations were only available through specific comic book apps, but this move into the digital era ensures that Calvin and Hobbes will remain close to the hearts and minds of children for years to come.
