I love the revival of the snowmen strips every winter...One day, when I have a lot of time, snow and help, I'd love to recreate some of them!!

Best cartoon ever... right up there w/Bloom County! I'll have to see if I can't find one of my favorite C&H's ever online. If not, I'll just scan the newspaper clipping I've kept all these years!!

So true, they were classic. I don't think anything's come close at all in recent years to matching such creativity and originality.

I adored Calvin & Hobbes when I was younger. My aunt gave me one of those thick treasury books when I was a kid, and I was instantly hooked with the magic and wit. Along with just being damn funny, there was also a lot of heart, and very pointed social commentary.

I also loved the fact that there were so many winter scenes...being from a place where it's winter a lot, I identified strongly with that.

Oooookay... here's the C&H that I clipped years ago. 1992, according to the date on the clipping.


And on a quick sidebar, just a few of my many favorite Far Side panels!

Calvin & Hobbes is by far my favourite! My brother and I used to read these all the time when we were growing up. We gave him the Complete collection for his birthday. I hope to get that some day.
