No, anon, we have simpler retorts than that.
these are such good quality. where did you get them, or did you actually scan them yourself?
every time I've tried to find the strips online, they're always way too small and lose a lot of detail.
Yep, gocomics. I don't recall their archive being this HQ either, it seems to be a recent upgrade.
This one bugs me slightly. The strip just seems like it would work better if it were either the first three or last three panels. Having both of the first and fourth throws the pacing,
Glasses was just an extra afaict. And Mr. Bun didn't seem to be able to come to life, so... lonely girl, Susie.
There's really been nothing on par with Calvin and Hobbes since it ended.
Except Nedroid. Maybe.
Gocomics archive, again. They're sorted by date.
I dunno... I might.
In terms of humor it holds its own but Watterson is a incredible artist and writer.
Cul-de-Sac was pretty great when it was around. Of course, then the creator had to get Parkinson's, because there is some malevolent deity out there that doesn't want to let us have nice things (See also: Pratchett, Terry).
Y'know, while Calvin may be really intentionally obtuse when it comes to most normal learning, he sure is freakishly talented when it comes to sculpture. Kid's got a bright future ahead of him.
I think you guys overrate the consistency of Watterson's work. There are many, many strips in the C&H history that are either the weaker variations on the same theme --which a non-daily cartoonist would generally not publish-- or recurring standbys like the dozens of strips where the joke is that Calvin gets mauled.
on the fastrack is a shitty comci about a tech company and people trying to make internet humor.
not only is it unfunny, it doesn't make any sense.
it what an old dumbass thinks how the web works.
Which is not to say that the maul strips weren't funny, but they were never hilarious.
This strip really improved my vocabulary as a kid. Back then I used to keep the dictionary handy when reading through my dad's big C&H compilation books, since Calvin used so many words I didn't recognize.
>tried to make snowmen like Calvin when I was a kid
>always came out like trash
So much of it is impossible, even stuff like stub arms made of snow. The best I ever did was a one laying on its back with Xs for eyes.
>tfw you will never recreate dismembered snowmen
Get Fuzzy wasn't so bad either.
I'm that dude who dunno One Piece
I fell out of watching Toonami, unfortunately
been watching random animes here and there, Black Lagoon was the Last Big Thing I got into
tried Claymore, but that shit got gay after a while
One Piece has been terrible for half a decade, and not even in a fun trainwrecky way. I can understand still reading it since it takes no time, but why would anyone possibly WATCH One Piece?
ennis lobby was a wreck but its back on track.
and the funimation dub is actually REALLY good.
and really....the cast is just too damn likable, everyone has excellent chemistry and the animation, designs, and imagination keeps it fresh.
Only one response to that sort of talk.
I like how they were funny when I was a kid, then funnier when I was older and actually got some of the philosophical/self-deprecating humor, then even funnier now as I keep seeing 4chan coming out of Calvin's mouth.
This one's mine. Could be worse.
Can't stand Far Side, it ranks up there will Peanuts in terms of shitty humor. Maybe it's just the newspaper format I can't stand.
...is that supposed to be a bad thing? Anime belongs in the trash.
And here's Calvin on tumblr.
In fairness, Superman and Thor have gotten away with much more implausible identity swaps.
>Remember the time he tried to join the baseball team?
Oh, just found that part. May '94.
Idk I grew up reading Bloom County and even though the political/pop culture references flew over my head, I was still drawn to the weird funny little world that Berke Breathed had created.
I wonder why Calvin never played videogames. The comic took place in those decades, and it might have made a fun story arc for him to have gotten a video game system but get bored with it or something.
Sure, the jokes may have ended up a lot like the TV jokes, or the modern gaming webcomic, but it's not something that you'd have seen often then.
I loved Bloom County. Remember the arc where Oliver made the machine that turned Steve black and they sent Opus and John up on a floating wheelchair to pigmentize the ambassador from South Africa?
You'd be surprised. At six my favorite capes were Spidey, Hulk, Cap, Superfriends and G-Force.
