Andrews McMeel Publishing and Universal Uclick have announced that they will be releasing for the first time three Calvin and Hobbes ebook collections. The ebook collections include The Essential Calvin and Hobbes, The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes, and The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes. All three will be available on November 12, 2013 for $12.99. The ebooks are formatted only for tablets.
Hugh T. Andrews, chief executive officer and president of AMP:
“Calvin and Hobbes is firmly established in the hearts of millions, who have been eager to enjoy the antics of their favorite duo in a digital format. We are delighted the technology has evolved to ensure the quality and high-resolution of images to accommodate the exceptional creative mastery of Bill Watterson, one of the greatest comic artists.”
Earlier this year Universal released a mobile app for iOS, Android and Windows devices that allowed readers to read all the comics found on GoComics for free (subscription required for archived comics).
