It is designed by Bill Watterson who created a total of 19 books on Calvin and Hobbes’ relationship. Also, it was published by Andrews McMeel Publishing in September 1988.

This part of a whole collection is kind of a mixture between the first two parts combined – “Calvin And Hobbes” and “Something Under The Bed Are Drooling”. The plot of this book is focused on Calvin who should be eating a plateful of green gunk which suddenly comes to life and recites the first couple of lines of the famous Hamlet’s proverb: “To be, or not to be”. Some of the most interesting scenes to the kids is probably the one that comes right after this one. It is about gunk breaking into a song before the main character Calvin ate it quickly.


Tom King’s Batman

After Tom King abandoned his role as the officer, he became an American author and comic book writer. He has done many successful comic books for the kids but one of the most popular among the young ones is “Batman”.

A comic writer of this book has started it after releasing a new relaunch of the entire line of titles called DC Rebirth in 2016.

The kids like this comic book because it provides a dialogue between Penguin and Alfred, some of the characters in the book. It is written mostly as spoken-word poetry with a particular rhythm which makes it so funny to read. This rhythm is presented in the form of repeating phrases that are often changing their meaning.

The Sandman

One of the best DC Comics that include a lot of different genres at the same place such as science-fiction, horror, space and time, even religion. This book is written by an American comic book writer Neil Gaiman. Those horror and religious parts of the book are related to a character called “Lucifer” who is represented as pure evil. However, the main character is quite the opposite. He is called “Dream”, or “Morpheus”, and besides Death, Desire, Despair, Destiny, Destruction, and Delirium, he is one of the “7 Endless”. The author of this comic book represented some anthropomorphic personification which is one of his trademarks. Also, he managed to mix up horror, mythology, and history particles in one artwork.
