Very Nicely Handled.

Yes! I've been a Calvin and Hobbes fan for a long time. The greatest thing about it is that it's not punch-line, low-brow humor, but it's actually quite sophisticated and philosophical.

I love that he has a bit of fur on his chest. Nice detail.

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/31/2009 09:39

he actually mentions drawing him in his german classes in one of the anthologies!

Thanks for this.  Makes me want to dig up all my Calvin & Hobbes treasuries again!

Completely unrelated to this, it reminded me of high school; I was always a fan of Calvin & Hobbes since I was little so this was freaky...  I had a tendency to go overboard for school projects that required any sort of creativity and would make flash cartoons for brochure projects or comic strips for vocabulary homework, and one day when I turned in a comic for a project in German II our teacher was really excited and stopped the whole class to show us something from her vault of awesome stuff.  Lo and behold, she yoinked out a huge posterboard of this really good comic series (as far as 10th grade high school quality would get) that was all captioned in the german language --- it was the work of the young Bill Watterson (or Wassersohn as he signed it in her class).

She was nearing retirement when I had her as my German teacher from 2001-2004, but she had actually taught him for a few years as a German student in that very classroom decades before me and still had his comic strips from those days.  The premise was basically Spaceman Spiff without the space part or the planets of dinosaurs.  I get inspired to this day thinking about that.
