I hope you’ve heard of Calvin and Hobbes.
I love comics (add 1 more tick to the nerd column) and Calvin and Hobbes was something that I was introduced to by my best mate back when I was about 12. I’ve never looked back. I have every book Bill Watterson has ever made. I could read them for hours…
The strip creator has never ever sold Calvin and Hobbes out. He maintains that he hates comic strips that whore out themselves with t-shirts, merchandise, tv shows, movies. He quite simply made the comic when and where he wanted. He even had a sabbatical during the peak popularity of his strip. When C & H finished. It finished, and there has not been a peep from him (athough I just discovered you can buy the whole collection in a big volume. SWEET!)
So there’s always been speculation as to what Calvin and his furry friend would be like in cartoon form, or even real life form. I have never ever seen it attempted until I discovered this, from Robot Chicken…
Not quite in the true spirit of the comic, but fucking funny anyway 🙂
If you have never read them? I WILL SEND YOU A COPY. Because you have not lived!
It’s very hard to pick just one or two examples that make this comic so good.
