Those are some of the earlier cartoons. Its too bad Watterson stopped the series, as it has always been my favorite comic!

Yep!

The Hammer is one of my favorites. Probably because of the basic truth to it.

Also is where he trapped Hobbes with a snare and a tuna sandwich.

"We're stupid like that."

Those of you who are Calvin and Hobbes fans might enjoy "Frazz"

In fact, the strips seem so much alike that I wonder if Bill Watterson doesn't actually pen Frazz.

Best comic every, and often my desktop background other than tanks or aircraft.

A friend of mine a few years ago from Brazil was surprised to see C&H in the paper, as he thought Calvin was a Brazilian strip.

Kinda like "for Better or Worse." I thought that was a US strip until they started talking about "Canada Poste." Them Canucks are everywhere, it seems.

The snowman ones were always my favorite. I love the strip where Calvin makes an entire line of snowmen saluting his father up the walkway.

I think the snowman series was the best bunch ever.

I'm especially fond of the snowdog lifting his leg to the fire hydrant.


I've been wanting to build one ever since I've seen that cartoon.

Just never get enough snow.

My Dad left my son a C&H book, which I just picked up the other day.
I had forgotten how great those two are!.
We have been reading 2-3 strips a night, before bed. I am not sure this is wise, as I may regret it later! My 6 yr old and Calvin well, they would be buddies for sure.

Thanks for the laffs with my coffee.

I loved The Far Side, too.

The author though has been pretty adamant about pursuing people that put his cartoons on the internet:

This is the email posted on Reto Portmann's website, which spurred Portmann, a fan, to remove the comics from his webpage. www.portmann.com/farside/


Gary Larson, the creator of the Far Side cartoons, sent me this email:
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

I'm walking a fine line here.

On the one hand, I confess to finding it quite flattering that some of my fans have created web sites displaying and / or distributing my work on the Internet. And, on the other, I'm struggling to find the words that convincingly but sensitively persuade these Far Side enthusiasts to "cease and desist" before they have to read these words from some lawyer.

What impact this unauthorized use has had (and is having) in tangible terms is, naturally, of great concern to my publishers and therefore to me -- but it's not the focus of this letter. My effort here is to try and speak to the intangible impact, the emotional cost to me, personally, of seeing my work collected, digitized, and offered up in cyberspace beyond my control.

Years ago I was having lunch one day with the cartoonist Richard Guindon, and the subject came up how neither one of us ever solicited or accepted ideas from others. But, until Richard summed it up quite neatly, I never really understood my own aversions to doing this: ''It's like having someone else write in your diary, he said. And how true that statement rang with me . In effect, we drew cartoons that we hoped would be entertaining or, at the very least, not boring; but regardless, they would always come from an intensely personal, and therefore original perspective.

To attempt to be "funny" is a very scary, risk-laden proposition. (Ask any stand-up comic who has ever "bombed" on stage.) But if there was ever an axiom to follow in this business, it would be this: be honest to yourself and -- most important -- respect your audience.

So, in a nutshell (probably an unfortunate choice of words for me), I only ask that this respect be returned, and the way for anyone to do that is to please, please refrain from putting The Far Side out on the Internet. These cartoons are my "children," of sorts, and like a parent, I'm concerned about where they go at night without telling me. And, seeing them at someone's web site is like getting the call at 2:00 a.m. that goes, "Uh, Dad, you're not going to like this much, but guess where I am."

I hope my explanation helps you to understand the importance this has for me, personally, and why I'm making this request.

Please send my "kids" home. I'll be eternally grateful.


Most respectfully,

Gary Larson



This is seriously making me forget about The Far Side altogether, since I can't just jump online and get a dose of it when I want. It's not like I hadn't seen most if not all of them, and I even own most of the books. It's just easier to look online.
