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. Priced by their publisher at $12.99 per book, the actual price appears to vary from store to store, but typically falls between $11 and $15.
