Amazon has the The Complete Calvin and Hobbes [amazon.com](v. 1, 2, 3) Hardcover Box Set for $50.69 and you get free shipping. Average regular price is in $90.89.

From my search this looks like the lowest price in years.

Get the paperback version of the complete collection for cheaper (which in turn makes it a better Christmas present!).

Barnes and Noble [barnesandnoble.com] has it for $50, use coupon code T9P3E3W to take 30% off. There is tax but the shipping is free. Mine comes to $37.36.

Note: T9P3E3W is a 30% off coupon for one item thanks to Dsar2012's post. Coupon valid Online 11/21 - 11/25

Just a word of warning--I work for a library, and we're constantly having to repair or replace these books because the binding is terrible and won't stand up to much abuse. With that said, if you're careful with your books, this is a great set! In for 1. Thanks OP!

Great series. Easily one of the best comic strips.

Not sure this particular "deal" is a great deal, but C&H rocks regardless!

Based on MSRP and how high this volume has held its price, it's absolutely hot if you're buying from B&N.

hmm the barnes and nobles membership gives you 10% off anything in stores right (non-hard cover), so i should be able to combine that with this 30% coupon right....
and there is a free two month membership trail to use too.... any thoughts guys?

I paid about $100 many years ago, never had any trouble with the binding on these books but maybe the assembly process/materials is different now.

The entire collection of an Author that published for 10 year is overpriced at $100? Confused

The amazon reviews about bad binding made me go the paperback route too.

This set is super heavy and not something you'd read on the couch. It's an archival set, meant for a desk. I bought it at twice this much, and have never more than browsed it a few times.

Simply too large and heavy for casual use.
