    I Really Respect Bill Watterson

    Bill did all the things that authors/artists should do with their creations. Let's make a short checklist. He fought against turning Calvin and Hobbes into a brand or having any merchandising at all for his characters.  His reasoning was that he felt it would cheapen them...

    One Of The Best

    Calvin and Hobbes was one of the best ever comics. I loved the way it was drawn and the humor in it. Calvin was right on as a boy yet evry adult could relate to him. I love the faces they make.Too bad Bill Watterson decide to give it up. I think he was tired of the business...

    The Fearless And Foolish Younger Me Whose Best Friend(s) Was His Own Imagination

    I am sure i can't be the only one, but when i first read the comic about a boy and his best friend who was his stuffed tiger brought to life with his imagination, I was captivated. In some ways, it was like looking back on memories of my childhood, the good parts. My kid-dom...

    This Comic Was One Of A Kind

    Back when I was a little kid, I used to love opening the comics section and reading Calvin and Hobbes. Point blank, there wasn't another comic ***** like this out there.  The vast majority of the comic had me laughing out loud.  The ***** captured that childhood...

    It's The Best

    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 grew up reading Calvin & Hobbes in the paper.

    I spent allowances on the trade paper back collections. I still own the hard cover oversized complete collection. I even saved the final ***** from The Washington Post and had it framed.. although that is one of my most missed items as I don't have it anymore. Nothing would...

    Probably one of the best compliments paid to me

    was from a coworker years ago. He said 'I can just imagine you as a kid growing up was probably just like Calvin from the Calvin and Hobbes comic *****'. I had a smile on my face and was quite proud of that remark. I think I was a lot like Calvin!

    I used to look forward to see Calvin

    Wow,just Wow

    I really don't care for comic strips mainly because most of the stuff that was in the papers were boring and unfunny. That all changed when a friend if mine brought a collection of Calvin and Hobbes(forgot the title) but it was all that was needed to make me a fan. The...

    Still........

    Brings a tear to my eye when I read this. On the worst day of my life. The day I knew I was reading the last "Calvin and Hobbes", Bill Watterson imagined this.  How can you not love the man?

    The algebraic variables "Y", as in whY do we care? And x always means multiply. The Tracer Bullet's noir style was classic. He keeps his magnum loaded, and his alcohol keeps him loaded.

    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!!

    Loved Calvin and Hobbes,

    but I really wasn't a big fan of his parents. It was interesting to see Bill Watterson draw such stereotypical grouches for Calvin's mom and dad when everything else in that comic ***** was so completely innovative and thought of outside the box.
