<B>An Excerpt from Bill Watterson's Introduction:</B></span> <p> <img border="1" src="" align="left">"I’ve loved comic strips as long as I can remember. As a kid, I knew I wanted to be either a cartoonist or an astronaut. The latter was never much of a possibility, as I don’t even like riding in elevators. I kept my options open until seventh grade, but when I stopped understanding math and science, my choice was made. There is great personal satisfaction in attending to detail and quality, and I remain very proud of the standards the strip met day after day. I also liked the responsibility of knowing that, succeed or fail, it was all my own doing. This approach kept the strip very honest and personal--everything having to do with Calvin and Hobbes expressed my own ideas, my own values, my own way. I wrote every word, drew every line, and painted every color. It’s a rare gift to find such fulfilling work and I tried to show my appreciation by giving the strip everything I had to offer." <p clear="left"> <span class="h1"><B>Exclusive Images from the New Collection</B></span> </!-- begin3pak --> <table border="0" cellpadding="4" width="100%" cellspacing="4"> <tr class="tiny" align="center" valign="top"> <td><img src="" border="0"> </td> <td><img src="" border="0"></td> <td><img src="" border="0"></td> </tr> </table> </!-- end6pak --> <span class="h1"><B>More Calvin and Hobbes Books</B></span> <p> <table border="0" cellpadding="4" width="100%" cellspacing="4"> <tr class="tiny" align="center" valign="top"> <td><img src=",TopRight,7,-26_PE32_SCMZZZZZZZ_.gif" border="0"> <br><I>The Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book</I></td> <td><img src=",TopRight,7,-26_PE20_SCMZZZZZZZ_.jpg" border="0"> <br><I>Weirdos from Another Planet!</I></td> <td><img src=",TopRight,7,-26_PE20_SCMZZZZZZZ_.jpg" border="0"> <br><I>Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons</I></td> </tr> </tr> </table>
