Sunday Funnies

Calvin and Hobbes...certainly on of the best offerings of the "Funnies" ever to grace a newspaper.Some call them comics...growing up at my house it was always "the funnies"....who has the funnies? Where are the Sunday funnies?
Bill Watterson created Calvin and Hobbes...made us laugh and think and smile for a short 10 years; then he just put down his pencils. I miss the little boy and his tiger to this day.

I live for Calvin & Hobbs-studied the theorists in college too (after already loving the cartoon). They have interesting theories. xoxo

Bill Watterson was the smartest cartoonist to ever live. This, of course, was why he was the best (not to mention his amazing backgrounds that usually only show up on his Sunday strips). It's too bad he became disenchanted with 'the funnies', though I'd say it might have been our societies fault.

I have a greater and greater respect for Bill Watterson every day. I am sorry that he discontinued his strip, but I do respect his decision. Our loss.

Calvin and Hobbes were/are essentially the Holden Caulfield of cartoons. Watterson has steadfastly refused to let them be turned into movies, television, or t-shirts...and he hasn't drawn another public panel for the public's consumption in almost 20 years.
