Zounds! Spaceman Spiff, Stupendous Man, the ferocious tiger Hobbes, and the rest of Calvin's riotous imagination are all included in The Days Are Just Packed. Calvin, the irrepressible pint-sized tyrant, is always bursting with energy. And the new volume's oversized 12-by-9 inch format provides Calvin's outrageous fantasies room to explode. Nowhere does the spiky-haired miscreant stretch out more than in the Sunday paper. And dozens of Sunday strips are lavishly reproduced in color for The Days Are Just Packed, along with Calvin's always amusing weekday adventures. In eight years, Calvin and Hobbes has conquered the syndicated cartoon world. Bill Watterson's work appears in more than 2,200 newspapers worldwide and is consistently voted "favorite comic" in reader's polls. All seven Calvin and Hobbes collections have sold over one million copies within a year of publication. With the advent of its exciting new size, The Days Are Just Packed has topped the bestseller lists even quicker than Calvin lands in the principal's office.
