Best first strip of a comic EVER
Hobbes is real! :-)
I’M KINDA PARTIAL TO DEVILED EGGS…HEH HEH!!
This SHOULD run in my local paper like “Classic Peanuts”! But, I told THEM I’d be willing to SUBSCRIBE to a custom comics page ONLY.
Unfortunately, THIS service doesn’t offer some of my favorites (LuAnn for example)
Hey get me a 5 ton chocolate bar and no matter who you are, I will love you for ever
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe
Catch a tiger by the ….. foot?
ha ha.. :)
Calvin and Hobbes is so funny i choked on my meatballs while eating.
Hey don’t blame me blame the meatballs.
it’s just as funny as the last ones
hobbs,i thought you was smarter then that!
This is one of the best strips in the series. It’s a great way to introduce the character of Hobbes. Does anyone else notice that the drawing style change throughout the course of the series?
@jason: yeaaa..i didnt quite recognize calvin there at first.ha ha
Alwaysed loved calvin :)
The first one!!!! C and H are really awesome but i prefer the way they look in later strips
Dad looks pretty much the same, but Calvin doesn’t call him “Pop” anymore.
Calvin was more of a stick figure in the beginning.
It is neat to watch how the Characters quickly transform as the artist gets more accustomed to drawing them. I wonder if Bill ever looked back at his earlier sketches and went, “Wow, has that ever changed!”
This could compete with Lio for best opening comic strip ever. I LOVE YOU C+H!!!
that is gust from the book! hello?
I have tons of C+H books, but I’ve never rread this one.
You know, if I was Hobbes, I’d wait for a good chicken sandwich. Tuna, yuck. :P
I thought calvin wood be yanger then thes
this proves that hobbes aint a stuffed animal!
I have read almost all of the calvin and hobbes books and I love every single one of them!!!!
I’ve always thought that Calvin&Hobbes is the best comic strip ever
Looks real different.
Tigers do love fish and they feel more comfortable in water than any other wild cat, but I am pretty sure they do not have access to bread in any forms.
He got one!!
A kid and his toy tiger. A formula for a great comic strip. Bill Watterson is a genius when it comes to comics. Want to read every one of them.
KID CATCHES TIGERgreat newspaper headline
Hm, this points to him being real. His parents don’t seem to know Hobbes at first and how else would he end up in the trap?
@calvinhobbesrock4evrthe username says it all. and i agree the later drawing style is better but not necessarily funnier.
The first one! What I like about this comic is that their is never a bad one!
calvin and hobbes is the best comic EVER!!!! i also like big nate and lio too
Calvin looked cute long ago.. but not anymore
how did, one, hobbes get up there if he’s calvin’s imagination. Two, how did he eat it?
And that’s how they meet! I think
Hobbes says “we’re kinda stupid that way” because he fell for Calvin’s trap
This is quite a pleasant surprise. I have no idea how I landed on this page, but maybe I’ll run through the entire collection here.
I want this to brighten my every day!
Bill Watterson said that he used this first strip to introduce Calvin with Hobbes, but later realized it wasn’t necessary. I’m glad for this first strip nonetheless.
There are many fine comics out there, but there will never be another Calvin and Hobbes. I will forever love this comics.
First C&H it all started here
HAPPY 29th CALVIN! (and hobbes)
Calvin and his pet tiger Hobbes are playing in Hangman in the backyard waiting for a visit from Uncle Max.
This is the first time I’ve read C&H. It’s going to be a while before I get through the entire series. :D
Now I know what to do with all that tuna I have in my cupboard!
this is so cool,the very first calvin and hobbes comic i gotta show my friends:) :) :)
Classic American literature…it has it all.
I love C and H! I wasn’t even born when this comic started (born 1994). Thank you Bill Watterson for creating this great comic strip!
Tigers will do anything for a tuna fish sandwich.The same way I will do anything for a five-pound Snickers bar.
My son and I have always loved Calvin & Hobbes. My faverate is Exploring.
Calvin can catch me anytime with a tuna fish sandwich.
i have every calvin and hobbes books in the world! well…. i think i have a lot tho :D saying this in 2015 nov 12 i still love it
Happy 30th, Calvin & Hobbes!!!
Here’s to 30 years.
“This was the first Calvin and Hobbes strip, published November 18, 1985. At the time, I thought it was important to establish how Calvin and Hobbes got together, but now I think this was unnecessary. Of course, when Calvin and Hobbes started, it appeared in about thirty-five newspapers, so not many people saw the first strip anyway. My hometown paper didn’t pick up the strip for several months, so I didn’t see this strip in the newspaper either. This is one reason I’ve been grateful for the book collections.”
Someone has no imagination.
Calvin and Hobbes had me thinking, I’d never heard of it and then I found this book in my house. 15 minutes later: I was a diehard fan.

For all you actors out there RKOreo ice cream
a mug for your morning coffee

Three debuts in one strip.
Calvin calls his dad ’dad! Not ’ pop ’
Never again I’ll give back this tiger!!!
Frame 1 — A legend is born
Too bad Bill has passed on…
This comic strip is AWESOME. I think EVERYONE should read it!!!!
C and H. it helps to brighten up my day. wat to go, Bill.
CALVIN AND HOBBES. ONE OF THE MOST ENTERTAINING CMIC STRIPS EVER.
Hobbes is kinda dumb
Yeah, tuna fish has stupidity radiations attracting tigers
Calvin and Hobbes is possibly the most imaginative comic and one of my favorites and I recommend it. I still think peanuts is the greatest comic strip of all time
This strip debuted the same day Mr. Snuffleupagus was finally revealed to the adult cast of “Sesame Street!” It’s neat that both share the milestone, and both involve “imaginary friends.”
This aint a comic its just a pic im testing plz tell me if it works!! Thx! https://ibb.co/kFA6Kv
