‘Calvin and Hobbes’ Hits the iBookstore, First Time in Ebook Format


Remember the days of reading Bill Watterson’s classic Calvin and Hobbes comics while growing up? Now you can re-live those moments in digital format, as three books have debuted in ebook format for the first time ever, available in the iBookstore, Kindle Store ($9.99 each) and the Nook store.

There are three books available (256 pages each) and ready for the iPad:

If you want 20% off these books, buy them after jumping on local iTunes Cards sales. You don’t want to miss these classic comics for your kids. I want these, NOW!

  • Just got the Complete Calvin and Hobbes (paperback edition) from Costco on the weekend for $50. Every Calvin and Hobbes comic ever printed. Couldn’t pass up that deal!

  • Kevin

    Sadly these books were removed yesterday at some point. Maybe they found an emulator in them.

  • That is strange! Just gone from the Canadian store.

  • Funky Chicken

    I managed to snag “Essential” a couple of nights ago, but when I went back to purchase “Authoritative” and “Indispensable”, I couldn’t access them, only to be greeted by the message: “The item you’ve requested is not currently available in the Canadian Store.” *&^%$#!!!
