yes, it was one of my favorites

I do miss it (along with The Far Side), but I give Watterson credit to know when he had enough and go out on top rather than letting it fade into repeats and tired jokes like so many other comic strips.

@travelchic75: Agreed... I still like to read them from time to time...

STILL around, probably not... that would make the strip 25 years old at this point. But I'm very sad Watterson didn't choose to pursue it for a couple more years, or at the very least (if he's so sick of dealing with the newspapers) release a couple more books independently on his own schedule.

I enjoyed this (but there is no replacing the real thing):

Calvin & Hobbes as envisioned by various artists. PG rated stuff.

I remember reading C & H comic collections in grade school. What a strip...one of the absolute best there is out there.

@novastarj: Watterson was so sick of the strip and the fame that it brought that he didn't want to have anything to do with it. Its a shame, he was tortured by the same thing that brought joy to millions.

@arevan: I love these! I always wondered what Calvin would be like as a grown-up and now i know :)

@arevan: Thanks, that was definitely needed. (That last one is very touching even though I read it first and then the others and then that one again and I knew what was coming.) Kinda makes you feel like its ok to grow up.

One of the best. At least I still have all those C&H books.

vote-for3vote-against

yep. I still have one on the fridge.

One of the best all time comic strips....

F-minus, Zits and Pickles are the only ones I look forward to these days.

Gocomics.com runs old strips daily, including the series. C&H is my homepage. Still makes me laugh almost every day!

If Calvin and Hobbes was still around it would be old and tired, yes, but less so than some of the strips that have been around since Gutenburg invented movable type. These lame old strips constitute the great bulk of the comics in my local paper. They finally got rid of Mary Worth a bit ago, but little else.

I always anticipated reading Calvin and Hobbes in the newspaper. I put all of it on my KindleDX now :)

Those are Awsome!!! Thank you, & are there more???
I ended up doing the same thing as @wisenekt: ie: reading them out of order and then reading them in order...

I really miss Spaceman Spiff and Snow Sharks...........

It would still be as relevant today, 25 years old or not. My proof: my 17 year old son put a Calvin and Hobbes compilation book on his Christmas list.

@arevan: I know I'm a month late in responding, but Hobbes and Bacon are wonderful!! Thanks for linking them!
