Bill Watterson was a genius. What I always took from Calvin and Hobbes was that this was the life of nearly every child. Every moment was magic. Every cardboard box network was an impenetrable fortress and every child knew better than the adults.

Just because the strip ended doesn't mean squat...the contribution has been made and we're all better for it.

wonderful interview from a humble and razor sharp mind. we (in the business of creative art) should all stop and think about what it means to distance yourself from your work for the audiences sake, as well as knowing to quit when you're ahead. Bill Waterson created a gem!

i have all the books too :3

I have every book released, short of the new Complete Collection. I was able to collect them over a number of years. Sadly, their actual newspaper popularity was during a point in my life where I was too young to care.

I adore(d) Calvin & Hobbes. I think I may have all of the books. Now that I'm older, I am seeing the underlying jokes and messages and that just makes me appreciate them more. I remember being in elementary school and middle school, staying up all night, reading my stack of comics.

C&H is a prime example of knowing when to quit while you're ahead. I'm not a big fan of the cartoon, but I find it admirable that the artist stopped in his prime, rather than continuing to ride the cash cow till it keeled over and died.

I too have every book, even the super huge/heavy three book set that came out a few years ago. I *still* laugh when I read them, but the older I get the more the experience changes. Back when the strips actually ran in the papers I read them with a much more childish understanding, seeing mostly the surface humor, but now I can see beyond that to the points Mr. Watterson was making. Calvin and Hobbes is still relevant, will probably always be so. I'll always have Hobbes chasing Calvin across my shoulders to remind me of how much I love them.

I have every Calvin and Hobbes book and have read them at least 5 times each.

Also, does anyone else think the arrows to go to different links go the wrong direction?

Calvin and Hobbes was the BEST! What made it great was Calvins' imagination that blurred the lines between reality and fantasy, mixed with innocence and mischief. Oh, and Hobbes' dry wit.

Can I say it?!? Calvin and Hobbs is not funny? - madest

No, you cannot, goto the corner! Bad dog!
C&H was a wonderful experience! It warms my heart just thinking about all the joy I shared (in that pre-internet way) with millions of other readers.
There's treasure EVERYWHERE!

"Can I say it?!? Calvin and Hobbs is not funny?"

There were some strips that were (like whenever Rosie would babysit Calvin and he'd give her all kinds of grief), but for the most part the series felt like I was reading something more philosophical and creative. Not just leading to the next punchline.
