From CCC, it seems this is probably the 3rd lowest price ever.

The glued bindings are no longer in circulation (at least when purchased new). I can confirm b/c I just bought this set from Amazon a few weeks ago when the same price was offered. Amazon only sells with the sewn bindings now.

I bought this 8 yrs ago - it was around $50...for the moment... It's a great, heavy set of books. The bad thing is - the binding is crap on them. They don't hold up very well...I've thought about checking into getting them re-bound, but i've been too lazy (and it would probably cost more than the books).

Other than that - it's awesome.

NOTE: Never mind. I read the first review on Amazon and that issue has been fixed.

a bit of trivia... C&H author has forbidden his estate from licensing it for any other format. that's why you'll never see an animated cartoon, video game or movie from these books.

In this case CCC only demonstrates the price before discounts is close to average. It can't be used to make conclusions about the final price after discounts because additional discounts (coupons, subscribe and save, etc) are not tracked by CCC or any other price tracking service. I'm not saying you are wrong but rather that the conclusion can't be made based on price history data.

Bought this many many years ago and I still take it out and read comics every few months. Definitely worth the price if you're a fan.

The paperback version they released a few later solves this issue, but it's paperback...

Haven't had the time to read them again yet, but got my set recently and it looks nice. I still like the covers of the old individual books more, but mine were getting old so I thought I better get this set before they fall apart.

I bought this set for my kids and paid full price - damn. This is such a great set - they love it and have poured over each book for hours. Love Calvin and Hobbs!

Glad to know they fixed the binding issue, I have an original run copy of it. It was a birthday gift, I read the entire set over the next few weeks and loved it (I had read the majority of the comic through the other sets offered and/or during actual newsprint).

I've always loved Bill's commentary on it too, in this set and others. Most of the jokes in it are timeless. As I became a parent myself, I really identified with Calvin's parents too. Although Calvin's view is simply amazing too.

Thanks, this is exactly what I was worried about. Classics and collections like this is exactly what I like to fill my bookshelf with, but poor quality is always a concern. I'm not the biggest Calvin & Hobbes fan, but it's the Winnie the Pooh of comic strips and great for a collection.
