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'm so excited my scalp is tingling!
Or is that a spider bite?
This is amazing news! I can't wait!
Pre-ordered back in July. Looking forward to getting it in my hands.
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.
Holy cow, Richard, that looks great. And that is some kind of news! I'd love to see that library, especially with you guys in it :)
Makes me happy.All of it. Congrats on all of these projects!
Back-ordered it as soon as it was available to back-order. didn't know THE Ohio State University had a new fancy comics thingie. My parents live in Columbus, hmmm...
Great news! That faraway sound you hear will be my riotous applause all the way from Anchorage!
I preordered mine and then went outside to dance on the manhole cover!
I've been waiting to read the rest of the strip until this comes out. Its almost killed me waiting this long. Thank you.
I want to see more of your work. It doesn't end here.
You may well get a chance.
How long am I going to have to lurk around this blog to learn what was meant at 12:05?
Looking forward to buying this! Is there plans for a hardbound edition too?
Nope, but I've got lots of cardboard left over from our move. Maybe I can work something out...
Will this one make the book?
Yessir, I think there're about 80 of the old watercolor strips in the first volume.
Any chance for a reprint of your earlier book RICHARD'S POOR ALMANAC?
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."]
I can't wait for this!!! Richard, you are truly missed.
