    Love It!

    I've always been a huuuuuuge Calvin and Hobbes fan! I've never read a comic that is able to combine total hilarity with sensitivity, grace, and dignity. This little comic deals with some pretty big real life issues in such a great way. I can't help but hold this series dear to...

    About History

    Calvin: History is the fiction we invent to persuade ourselves that events are knowable and that life has order and direction. That's why events are always reinterpreted when values change. We need new versions of history to allow for our current prejudices...

    Yes I Do

    Calvin and Hobbes is my favorite comic ***** in the newspapers. Full of wit and lessons for life-never stop being a kid... Be helpful, even when not everyone might appreciate you.  There will be bad, really bad times in your life, but you gotta look past them.  Why do bad...

    I Really Respect Bill Watterson

    I Love Intelligent And Playful Humor!

    Calvin & Hobbes is one of my favorite comic strips. I actually have 3 of Bill Waterson's books. Calvin with his trusty friend Hobbes would get into so much trouble just having fun. I was able to find a few of my favorites, Enjoy!!

    Bill Watterson, If Only I Could Touch Your Feet!

    Calvin: Isn’t it strange that evolution would give us a sense of humour? When you think about it, it’s weird that we have a physiological response to absurdity. We laugh at nonsense. We like it. We think it’s funny. Don’t you think it’s odd that we appreciate absurdity...
