I LOVE Calvin + Hobbes, so much. I keep on meaning to buy the volumes, but I always forget.

I remember posting a strip up somewhere, but can't remember what thread it was. It was the one where they're in a tent, then Hobbes says to Calvin: "Do you believe in ghosts?", then it shows them trembling in fear. :lol: Well, it was something like that, anyway. My memory is shot, right now.
Read my horrible webcomic you fat assh*le!

I've seen some of those comic strips; generally they are funny if I do say so myself.

The entire collection is at my parents' house. We accumulated them over the years through those Scholastic book order form things they'd pass out in elementary school. Since then, I've read them cover to cover many times.
Bill Waterson was a freakin' genius.

Anybody up for a game of Calvinball? :mrgreen:

I'm a big Calvin and Hobbes fan. Gotta love a comic strip (or anything for that matter) that treats its audience as if it has both an imagination and a brain.

Bill Watterson, by the way, is from a city about nine minutes from where I was born. Chagrin Falls, Ohio. He refused to merchandize his characters and only ever released strips in papers or book form. I got crazy respect for that.

I read a funny interview with him and he was discussing those "Clavin Pissing on Ford/Chevy/GM" bumper/window stickers you see on trucks and sh*t (those are all unlicensed reproductions without Watterson's permission). He had a funy take on it, though.

"I guess I drastically underestimated the market demand for my Calvin peeing on things."

same here, i've read them cover to cover about 5 times each or more. The new collection from 05 is amazing because it has dates and you can read them in friggin order. I'm up for calvinball. No rules, so we can play it online

Yes, while i still wonder what a "calvin and hobbes" television show would be like, i am extremely grateful for his loyalty to the characters and his not being a sellout. Calvin and Hobbes was not meant for anything else other than comics. Any sort of other media would completely destroy

a- calvin and hobbes voice (everyone has their own voice they imagined, i don't tho, i just read the text)
b- the circumstances by which hobbes becomes alive. We all know the problem there :P

Man, i thought watterson would keep his location secret. I've always wanted to contact him somehow, let him know how much i appreciate his work

Haha, a Calvinball roleplaying thread would be cool. I used to get the books from my middle school library all the time. I'd usually be reading one of them instead of doing my work.

I know he's from there, but I don't know if he's still there. The city, though, looks a lot like the neighborhood where Calvin lived. Houses, yes, but also lots of streams, woods, grass... it's really beautiful.

Plus, I don't know his address, and it's not like there are signs all over the city pointing the way to his house, so I think his location is still more or less a secret, unless you want to drive to the city like Bob Wiley from "What About Bob?"
