Calvin and Hobbes



Wish I could post this on Facebook. But those friends who are in the know might accidentally spill the beans on my stealth retirement (at age 44) and others might get jealous. So I'm just leaving it here.

I miss that strip. That was one of the most brilliant comics ever.

I love them too.

Bill Watterson isn't making any new ones, but you can get an old one every day by "liking" this Facebook group:
https://www.facebook.com/dailycalvinhobbes

And you can find specific cartoons using the Calvin and Hobbes Search Engine:
Calvin & Hobbes Search Engine - by Bing

It's better than nothing. :-/

No one here can blame him for retiring early. Clearly he warned us too.

C&H and The Far Side were my absolute favorites. Today I like Dilbert and it's good but I'd trade it for the other 2 any day.

Thanks - I love C&H - nothing else comes close for me and thanks for sharing. I would love to share it (even if I am working) - but then it would still be a bit like gloating.

To those two I would add Bloom County. Although none of them could replace Pogo.

Pogo. Amazing on so many levels.

Cakvin and Hobbes captured so much and never hit us over the head with it.

I just went to my bookshelf and found these large softcover books:
Herman
Far Side Gallery
Shoe
four (4) Calvin and Hobbs
whoops: another Far Side

I wonder if I seriously done the LBYM thing, would I have these books?

I bought the complete Calvin & Hobbes for $50 hardcover at Amazon when it was on sale. I think it weights 30 pounds!
