Life was richer then…

You are dearly missed, Calvin and Hobbes.

Bill Watterson:

It’s always better to leave the party early. If I had rolled along with the strip’s popularity and repeated myself for another five, 10 or 20 years, the people now “grieving” for “Calvin and Hobbes” would be wishing me dead and cursing newspapers for running tedious, ancient strips like mine instead of acquiring fresher, livelier talent.

Still, it doesn’t seem right that Calvin and Hobbes should bow out so early while Garfield drones on and on and on—to say nothing of twenty years without Video Power. 😉

    To this day one of the finest comic strips to grace a page. I still have all the books and they have aged just fine indeed. My children enjoy the same stories I did 20 years ago.

    Fine literature need not be restricted to voluminous tomes stored in stuffy libraries. 😉
