The Whole Thing 2



Annotated, copyedited, collated, and now covered. The only thing left to be done is the printing and gluing it or sewing or whatever they do to make it hold together And, of course, buying it.

It'll be available in Spring 2014 in conjunction with a two-man show of original cartoons at Ohio State's fabulous new $10 trilllion cartoon library. Bill Watterson will be the other man. Maybe he'll have a complete book of cartoons too! And I'll bet his'll be heavier!

Here are all the covers, to the books and the box.

This is grand news and I can't wait to see it. Lovely to hear about the show with that other fellow. What was his name again?

I already preordered the book!

It's great to hear from you again
M.Culdesac. I've missed you! For this I wish I lived in Ohio.

YES! Every one I love around me is going to get this as a present, because frankly they need some Cul de Sac in their lives. But most importantly - one for myself.

I hope things are well.

I flushed ice cubes down the toilet hoping this day would come. And it did!

Amazing news about the exhibit in Ohio, but too bad about that other dude piggybacking on your fame. I mean, I like that thing he did about the psychotic kid and his hallucinations, but what has he done lately?

Can't wait for the collection. I hope you are hanging in there.

Sandy Jarrell said...

You may well get a chance.

Brian Floca said...

How long am I going to have to lurk around this blog to learn what was meant at 12:05?

Michael Auger said...

Looking forward to buying this! Is there plans for a hardbound edition too?

richardcthompson said...

Nope, but I've got lots of cardboard left over from our move. Maybe I can work something out...

Miguel said...

Will this one make the book?

Yessir, I think there're about 80 of the old watercolor strips in the first volume.

Robert Cook said...

Any chance for a reprint of your earlier book RICHARD'S POOR ALMANAC?

Lori said...

I am SO looking forward to this! And the Ohio exhibit! Well,... [In deep voice of "Coming Attractions" announcer:] Thompson. Watterson. Two contemporary geniuses. One exhibit. [Graphic of Alice, Petey, Dill, Calvin, Hobbes. Then, black screen followed by appearance of white text: "Spring 2014."]
