Nostalgic Calvin and Hobbes Fan Art
Calvin & Hobbes has always been one of my favorite cartoon strips. I fondly remember snatching the funnies out of the Sunday newspaper (you know, back when newspapers were a big deal) and carefully reading strips in a particular order. Peanuts was a light appetizer, Far Side was my dinner salad and that huge, full color Calvin & Hobbes strip was my delicious main course. While the Internet was still kicking off, I was digesting those thin paperback, 100-page releases of a year or two of Calvin & Hobbes strips.
When I revisited the comics as an adult about 15 years later, I started to pick up on the clever elements of philosophy and history that are wrapped into the comic strips. it makes me think Pixar stole their entire gameplan to make movies for both adults and kids directly from Bill Watterson.
Anyway, if you are interested in discovering or rediscovering Calvin & Hobbes, I highly recommend the Calvin & Hobbes Tumblr. For those familiar with the series, check out this collection of Calvin & Hobbes fan art created by a large collection of different artists:
