I remembered reading this sometime ago and got a kick out of it. Did a "google" and found it today, thought I'd post a link.


Calvin and Hobbes

I was depressed when that strip ended... ...as a matter of fact...it was when I stopped reading the funny pages.

You know, somebody will be along soon to piss in your Corn Flakes that this is "lame" and gets posted every year, blah, blah, blah. I look forward to it, though. This particular comic has some really funny artwork. Thanks for posting a link!

Who in their right mind wouldn't like C&H? They make life a little more tolerable. The sum of the sanity in the insane asylum, hand drawn.

I'll admit, the funny pages just aren't the same without C&H. And the snowman series-ABSOLUTELY THE BEST. Funnier than the T-Rex in F15 'toons he did.

I have seen those 1000 times and enjoy them each and every time.

I was a huge fan of Calvin and Hobbes back in the 80s. I heard the artist won't license his characters to be on t-shirts and lunch boxes and such. My favorite one: when after missing the little girl with multiple snowball barrages, Calvin finally lands one on her head. "Bad news, Mom; I sold my soul to the devil today." Hilarious! Panzer Out

C&H was my favorite comic! Anyone know why the artist stopped?

I have a tattoo of Calvin and Hobbes; you could say I am a fan. Great strips. I may have to go pull out the old books and go through them again. I always laugh my ass off for hours. I pretty much was Calvin as a kid so a lot of it rings true for me.

According to a website Watterson said after 10 years he was tired of the deadlines, shrinking comic spaces, and the syndicates. I miss all 3 of my favorite comics: Calvin, Bloom County, and The Far Side.

The good thing is you can still get all of his collections at bookstores for around $10 apiece. I think I have every collection of his strips, including the anniversary one where he goes into why he won't syndicate his art. In it he basically rips Jim Davis a new one for licensing Garfield on everything from lip balm to toilet paper...

Oh thank you, thank you, thank you. [bow] [bow] [bow] I found this series somewhere once only it was a PowerPoint slide show. I could laugh my ass off at work, but not at home. I miss the hell out of Calvin and Hobbes. Even had a pair of kittens once we named Calvin and Hobbes. One was wild and always into/up to something. The other one was more laid back and just watched. [:D]

I think things took a turn for the worse when Calvin went away.

More votes for C&H, Bloom County & Far Side. I actually stopped getting the paper when they all went away! The current cartoons are pathetic and strikingly un-funny.

The Far Side, Calvin, and Bloom bodies of work are my top three favorites of all time (not necessarily. in that order). Have you seen that Berke Breathed has brought Opus back in his own strip?
