Calvin Respect Thread

#1 Edited by The Man of Yesteryear (5502 posts) - - Show Bio

"There are few wellsprings of humor more consistently reliable than the mind of a child. Most cartoonists, being childlike, recognize this, but when they set out to capture the hurly-burly of the very young, they almost always cheat, shamelessly creating not recognizable children, but highly annoying, wisecracking, miniature adults. Chalk it up to either indolence or defective recall, but most people who write comic dialogue for minors demonstrate surprisingly little feel for -- or faith in -- the original source material, that is, childhood, in all its unfettered and winsome glory."

"It is in this respect that Bill Watterson has proved as unusual as his feckless creations, Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson is the reporter who's gotten it right; childhood as it actually is, with its constantly shifting frames of reference."

I think my favorite tale would have to be "Scientific Progress Goes 'Boink'", I loved his duplicates!!

My former avatar wasn't Calvin, that was Stupendous Man!

Mild mannered Calvin was at home doing his homework.

The Calvin and Hobbes comics were some of the best ever. Whenever I read one I feel like a kid again, Bill Waterson created amazing characters and treated them with high respect.

Calvin and hobbes was such a good comic. I found thick tradeback of them when I was 10 at my cousin's home and I would read it whenever I can and it was enjoyable
