Don't be too disheartened. It might work if you started a little later. There was some C+H discussion in the Charlie Brown threads when the older Schulz stuff got posted so it's not like the fish aren't here. They just ain't biting.

I wish i had some strips on my computer or i'd post some.

Loved C&H and will always love it. It was my first ever comic. Even now I have the torn up cover less collection i read as a kid, now accompanied by my complete collection.

I know it's been said many times before, but it's amazing how much integrity Watterson has. He could have made so much money licensing Calvin and Hobbes for merchandise and cartoons but chose to preserve his art.

Not that I'm saying it's wrong to make money that way. Jim Davis unashamedly squeezes Garfield for all it's worth, and makes no pretense about caring about quality.

Was this ever pubished in other countries? It's weird that I never got this one.

Man, C&H is an incredible kind of comic strip.

Nothing comes close to replicating the adventures of a 6-year-old with a wild imagination.

I grew up an only child like calvin so I was always at peace with hobbes being imaginary. My family avoided me and i lived somewhere where i couldn't go out and play with the neighbor kids so most of my free time was spent in my imagination too.

I was never bummed hobbes was imaginary, I was bummed that i couldn't make anything as real as hobbes was to calvin.

Maybe look at it the other way: Hobbes is real to Calvin, and that's all that matters. The strip was about the wonder and power of imagination and creativity and exploration.

Whether or not Hobbes was real, Calvin made him real, and that's a power we all have.

Too many to count, C+H is my favourite strip. But I'm an astrophysicist, so this one hits very close to home.

>>77547765
People used to look at the stars obsessively before modern times. Some people literally worshipped them.

Then they went on to slaughter and enslave each other.
>>
>>77547351

Really? That's sad. C+H was the last great American newspaper strip. Nothing since has really been comparable.
>>
>>77547812
What was great about it was that it was good without being cynical and bitter like so many modern comics, but also without being too sappy and childish.
>>
>>77547390

One of my favorite strips (I don't have it) is the one where the dad points out to him that the inner point of a spinning record must travel at a lower speed than the outer point, and the last panel is just Calvin laying in bed at night completely baffled at how this must work
>>
How do you all feel that within your lifetime you will inevitably see a C+H movie, probably 3d animated like the peanuts, that will completely fuck up the appeal of the strip

Not as long as Watterson is alive (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Watterson#Fight_against_merchandising_the_cartoon_characters):

>Watterson's position eventually won out and he was able to renegotiate his contract so that he would receive all rights to his work, but later added that the licensing fight exhausted him and contributed to the need for a nine-month sabbatical in 1991.

Watterson himself will never allow a movie. When he dies hopefully his estate will respect his wishes. I hope his will states that Calvin and Hobbes can never be licensed.

>>77548052
Yeah, for works created after 1978 it's author life + 70 years. I'm 31, Watterson is 57. He'll probably live at least another 20-30 years, so if his estate maintains his stance you're looking at at least a century before his works enter public domain.

I'll be dead by then, thankfully spared the future horror of retro nostalgia in the early 2110s.

>>
>>77547351
Yes. I'm from Colombia and I loved reading Calvin and Hobbes when I was a kid.
>>
>>77547536
Not really.
But mainly because there's proof that Hobbes might actually be alive or at least that calvin might be psychic or some kind of reality warper.

There's a strip that implies heavily that Hobbes took some tuna out that would've been impossible for calvin that even his parents acknowledge.

The snowgoons actually build themselves and even move on their own

In one arc he makes clones that actually interact with others while the real calvin is actually doing other things. At one point they even alternate days they go to school. He eventually turns them into actual worms. None of this is his inagination and are things taking place in the real world.
>>
>>77548286
Post-singularity, you can just create a population of a million copies of yourself, overclock them to run at greatly accelerated speed, have them consume shittons of content by copies of various authors (created under threat of pain if necessary), and then read the classics that emerge.

>>
That time the comic predicted vaporwave
>>
>>77548329
you need to re-read the strips then. just because they happened in the real world doesn't mean it's not his imagination.

The fact that calvin eats green slime every single night for dinner is his imagination too.

the tuna, clones, and snowgoons were all imagined.

Calvin is just that crafty as fuck kid who'll roll around in dirt and rip his clothes up just to immerse himself in his world and say that his tiger misses him so much he attacks him every day after school
>>
Some of my favorite strips are the ones where he plays House with Susie or something and the strip does an art shift to reflect that

On another note, it was interesting that for the entirety of the run, there was only ONE comic strip that really solidly implied that Calvin had feelings for Susie and vice versa (it was a valentines day one, where Comic sent Susie some dead flowers, and she pelts him with a snowball, and the last panel is Susie thinking "He sent me flowers! He does like me!" and Calvin is thinking "She noticed! She does like me!"

>>77548569
If his clones are real then calvin suffers from split personality disorder as he's unable to remember the events his clones have experienced. Even botj calvin and the clones were able to do things simultaniously, see the interactins with his parents.

His snow goods were cappable of actual movement on their own as we see one successfully make it from his yard to his front porch. They also had to have made more of them selves as Calvin has a lawn full of them when he sets out to freeze them solid in a surprise attack.

How are you this autistic?

The strip is from Calvin's POV. We see the world as he imagines it, that's why crazy shit happens. It's all in Calvin's imagination.

His "fights" with the snow goons and their "movement" is just him playing in his head. The "clone" thing is just an imaginary game he's playing.

>Playing
Calvin is left frustrated with his clones as his already poor performance slips even further neither knows what the other knew and again, the interactions with his parents alone says they existed in universe.

The snowgoons movement actually happens as well. It's the parent that finds it of the porch. Calvin could not have just moved it or any of the snowmen himself.

Taking even taht away, there would be nothing that explains how the snowgoons built more of themselves while calvin was inside the house.

Calvin himself did everything, we're just seeing the silly imaginary situation he's created.

Calvin built them and moved them himself. That's what happened in reality. We see his imaginary version from his POV.

you're not getting it.

There was probably only the few vital snowgoons, the rest is just calvin imagining them.
.

And for a kid who's bored and all alone except for his imagination. trouble like the clones gave him IS playing.

Remember that one arc where he transforms himself into a tiger but then the transmogrifyer breaks and he can't turn back? He spent all day as a tiger and even told his parents what happened, but they just nodded him along because they saw a little boy and he does this type of stuff all the time.
>>
>>77549247
Man, this strip would have gotten him arrested and despised if it came out today.


Every generation says the coming generation is worse but damn, we're at the end of true freedom aren't we?

Honestly anon the more you look into it the more you get the impression that American culture was always uptight about this sort of shit

Watterson just happened to be around during one of our more less restrictive moments
>>
>>77549192
With his clones, calvin is legitimately doing things at diffrent places at the same exact time though.

And all the imagination in the world alone can't successfully move an entire snowman in such a short time.

Winter's coming up, try making a snowman then move it, using just your hands, a good 30 feet yourself in the same condition you made it.

Now make 49 more and do the same for each of them in the same day
>>
>>77549325
>The rest is calvin imagining them.

You know except for when the parents see a lawn full of snowgoons the next morning.

Yes there are some arcs that are simply his imagination, but when there are others that actually affect the real world you are left wondering just how powerful his mind is

IT'S A FUCKING COMIC BOOK.

The nigga who wrote this shit didn't put the amount of thought into it as you did. He just wrote a kid having imaginary hi-jinx. he didn't make a real duplicator out of cardboard. the writer of the comic just decided to have the clones mess with the parents. every parent has said it feels like their children are in a million places at once.

but the entire arc, THE ENTIRE THING is just calvin doing whatever the fuck he wants around the house, and blaming all the shit that went down, on his clones.
>>
>>77549553
Not every story needs to be the kind of story where psychics and reality benders and what have you exist. If you ask me, Calvin and Hobbes is the kind where stuff like that doesn't fit. After all, the point with imagination is that everyone has it. Reality bending, not so much.
>>
>>77549553
calvin has on several occasions made a shit ton of fucking snowmen just to fuck with his parents. he's made armies before, that's nothing.

Calvin is not some fucking reality warper, he's a child with an active imagination.

If that was the case then Calvin would be able to recall events his clones went through rather than mentally gimp himself unless he himself suffers from a severe psycological disorder...And posseses super speed.

>>77549630
And for each of those he himself takes credit for them. Either way, he doesn't make whole hoards. He held no claim to any of the extra snowgoons.

Yeah, he said he hated comics but he meant the kind of book that was popular in the 90s that he was parodying. He clearly doesn't hate the very idea of comic art.

He doesn't seem to like the Big 2's stuff, but with Image or another indie he could publish anything he wants.
>>
>>77549806
You have to remember we only really see the parents when Calvin is interacting with them, and even then usually only when he's being a little shit.

The vast majority of time they're just a normal family, but the strip isn't about their daily life. The parents seem pretty happy generally.
>>
I believe there was another strip which attested to the Hobbes being real idea.

One where Calvin took a picture of Hobbes lunging at him from the front door. When his father looks at the photo, he questions how Calvin managed it or something along those lines.
>>
>>77552241
I remember one time Hobbes tied him to a chair and his father then wondered how he managed to do it himself.
I think Waterson sometimes drops stuff like that just to mess with readers.

This is the canonical way Calvin got Hobbes, although Watterson later said he regretted the initial strips, saying that he should have kept Hobbes' origins a mystery

You know, I honestly think Watterson made the right call, and yet sometime I wonder how great a CH movie could be, if put in the right hands.

Imagine some beautiful animation made to look like those watercolor Sunday pages in which C&H walked in the autumn forest, speaking about the purpose of life and being generally silly.
>>
>>77552879

I can't imagine a movie because that would mean they'd have to be voiced. Something that I could imagine in moving form would have to be more abstract and without narrative.

I always thought a nice way of sticking to Watterson's ideals and the spirit of the comics would be a movie or something where the camera just creatively follows Calvin and Hobbes from a distance through all their amazing environments and imagined areas.

It might follow them whilst they walk through a snowy forest for example, or from an amazing angle and distance, you see them flying through the clouds in a cardboard box, or the little red ufo flying through gas vapors on a massive alien planet, dodging bolts from Alien craft. And essentially, it just jumps from scenario to scenario, but in very clever transitions. You never get to see them up close, or hear them talk, but you can see them in the distance doing their thing.

You know it's them, but you're farther now than when you originally knew them.

Don't forget Calvin would often stand on top of Hobbes to reach the mailbox or places he could not get to, including Hobbes getting into the tree house and throwing the rope down to Calvin.

Or how Hobbes tied Calvin to the chair. His dad even commented on how couldn't figure out how he did it himself.

Calvin: Look, a dead bird!

Hobbes: It must've hit a window.

Calvin: Isn't it beautiful? It's so delicate. Sighhh... once it's too late, you appreciate what a miracle life is. You realize that nature is ruthless and our existence is very fragile, temporary, and precious. But to go on with your daily affairs, you can't really think about that...which is probably why everyone takes the world for granted and why we act so thoughtlessly. It's very confusing. I suppose it will all make sense when we grow up.

Hobbes: No doubt.

Found the collections at the library when I was 8~ish and tore through them. Pretty good.
My favorite one is the Sunday strip where him and Susie are drawn as adults, they're playing house, and Calvin says "no, this is idiotic, I refuse" because she wants Mr. Bun to be their baby.

Mom got into them too, her favorite was "anybody but your biological mother would have left you to the wolves long ago"

I fucking love Calvin and Hobbes. Literally childhood summers defined. I wished I could have the same kind of adventures. Tried going on them, tree climbing and adventuring and shit. Problem was I didn't live in the midwest, I live in SoCal suburbs.

This comic really makes you long for that kind of small-town lifestyle, even though in reality it's probably absolutely shit if you're not white.

Honestly, as a kid reading these comics, that thought never crossed my mind. That was until one day when I was 11 or so, and we had to talk about books during a library period.

I talked about Calvin and Hobbes, and when I began talking about Hobbes, our teacher said "his imaginary tiger right?".

I stopped talking for a moment, then felt the wind get knocked out of me as that sank in. It was like finding out Santa wasn't real too early or missing a birthday.

Couple seconds later I responded with "Y-yeah...".

Generally, the pantheon of "greatest American comic strips" is considered to be Peanuts, Pogo, Krazy Kat, and Calvin and Hobbes.

There are lots of second-tier favorites that often get argued up as well. Most often it's cos they hit a certain cultural critique vibe folks don't associate with comic strips, or they're historically significant. Gasoline Alley, Doonesbury, Bloom County, Little Nemo in Slumberland, The Yellow Kid, Katzenjammer Kids, Little Orphan Annie, Li'l Abner, Dick Tracy, etc.

But when you get right down to it, C + H vs. Peanuts is always going to be the comic strip version of that old Beatles vs. Rolling Stones debate in music. And while Peanuts has the historical importance behind it, for sheer creativity I'd give the edge to Calvin and Hobbes every time.

>>
>>77568023
>>77567947
Yeah I'd put Far Side somewhere in there as well. It's not particularly insightful, but it's kind of clever in its own way.

As for Peanuts Vs. Calvin and Hobbes, I'd probably side with the latter as opposed to the former. Mainly because the art in Calvin in Hobbes is just drawn so well, and Waterson took full advantage of every milometre of space he had on the newspaper.

However both of them still hold up today, which is the mark of a good product.

I actually think it does, it draws some attention to a sadly common and horrible problem that people like to pretend does not exist.

I do agree that the comic series gets repetitive. I also think this kind of bleak storytelling is hard to get invested in, even if I understand what the author is trying to do. But yes, I think this could have just been one or two shorter comics and gotten its point across.

I disagree. I like how we get to see how everyone, especially Clarissa, have to live through this. Instead of him getting her and getting busted, no one wants to snitch. We see her trying to subtly tell the teacher. She knows how to avoid it during and after bath time and in the latest comic she's shown to not only wish death upon her dad and takes precautions to avoid the lewds, but she also has this strange way of trying to keep herself safe. In fact her interaction with other kids has been shaped by this whole ordeal.
>>
>>77569038
Yeah the middle child seems to know what's going on, and wants to stick up for his sister, but is too scared to do so.
>>
>>77569082
An anon here put it perfectly. The mom tries to make everything better by buying her gifts and making her favorite food, the older brother blames his sister for everything that happens and the younger brother is extremely skittish about everything. They all show the different ways that one might react to this kind of situation.

Yes, claiming society is "saturated in rape and child molestation because muh patriarchy" is a conspiracy theory.

In the "first world" and to some extent second world, women can legally do just about everything men can, and can sue for very large amounts of money if they get harassed or abused. Even alluding to a man being a pedophile or rapist can become a meme which ruins their careers for life [see Michael Jackson] and even slightly defending a rapist or pedophile will get you hated [see John Grisham, who said it was a little extreme that one of his friends who clicked a CP link got 3 years in prison, and everyone boycotted his books as a result].

Rape and pedophilia is very deeply hated in our society. On facebook I see images going round with hundreds of shares advocating horrible tortures for pedophiles. Our society is not "drenched" in anything but hatred for rape and pedos [and incest to boot].

Your dad was just a shitty fucked up cunt. You're an outlier, your situation is abnormal. Thinking "I know a person who got touched, and I did, so that means ALL households have a baby rapist in them because I can FEEL it" is ludicrously naive and fallacious.

Which is why you need to go back to /pol/ or tumblr, because you've got nothing to back you up. All the facts stand in their way.

>Whatever helps you sleep with your penis at night

Lying on my back, normally.
>>
>>77569714
Nope. /r9k/ aren't normal people. They're one of those small groups I'm talking about.
>>77569755
As are men by women.
>>
>>77569780
*tens of thousands of shares

TL;DR the evidence is overwhelming that society condemns pedophilia, incest, and rape, and saying "This is saturated in society" because it happened to you is fucking stupid

>>77569791
>Nope. /r9k/ aren't normal people.

ha ha ha

you dont fucking know what its like to have so many fellow female friends who feel weird conflicted shit about their fathers because they were good to them but did something inappropriate once in a blue moon

you don't know what its like to know that 40% of your friends have been raped by guy everyone sees as cool and nice and the friend doesnt do anything about the fact that they were raped because society tells them they shouldn't have been messing around with a guy sexually in the first place and they should EXPECT the guy to penetrate them even if they make it clear that they don't want that

ha ha ha you have no fucking clue and i envy you i really do

molestation and rape are clear and violent in the movies but the reality of most of it is subtle, sad, and widespread. You will never understand because your female friends will never reveal this to you.

Once again: Your little vagina tribal drum crying circle is just as valid as /r9k/ saying all women are whores because all of them had bad experiences with women, a.k.a. it's not fucking valid, because you are not the entire population of Earth.

You've got some serious ego problems, anon, thinking that you comprise nearly all of Earth's female population and that your daddy is nearly all of Earth's male population, and you should probably check into a shrink.

>40% of your friends have been raped by guy

Let me help you out with what "rape" means.

Rape (noun) a. The crime of using force or the threat of force to compel a person to submit to sexual intercourse.

Sitting there allowing it to happen while saying in your head "oh gosh darn i just hate this so much but uhhh I think I'll just stay here" is not rape. Sitting there with your legs open and then whining about it with your friends in your whining circle later on until it sounds like a brutal assault still doesn't make it rape.

haha fucking gross, you would fuck an obviously uncomfortable girl who mentioned her boundaries before. You don't understand how abuse works. A man ignoring that his girlfriend said she didn't want to do anything penetrative is rape. You think it's okay because she doesn't say anything. She doesn't say anything because she is frightened and/or confused.

I think a short series could be fun, ideally one where each episode is meant to encapsulate some reoccurring story/setting from the original comic. So one episode about the camping trips, one about the box, one with his babysitter, etc. Not a full retelling, but something that can succinctly retell the best bits from the comic, while ideally also creating some new material that's also enjoyable to compliment it.

The baby raccoon story could be stretched out to be in the background for a few episodes before he dies suddenly. Maybe have it be rescued to make the audience think one way, then have a dog or something attack it a couple episodes later.

Hey watch I can cherry-pick complaints to make one set seem more legitimate than the other too, watch here I go

Tumblr anger towards men:
> boo hoo they won't sleep with me or they are cheating because I'm fat and unattractive blah blah I feel entitled to male attention no matter the context

Male anger towards women:
> I can't defend myself against abusive women without being labeled abusive myself
> Family courts are arranged to benefit women and shit all over men
> Female physical standards in the military are lower, essentially endangering male soldier's lives so we can pursue some delusion of gender equality
> Female rapists who rape boys are seen as not all that harmful and their victims are considered 'lucky'
> I have pretty much zero reproductive rights and if I get a girl pregnant, even if by accident, I am obligated to essentially be her slave for 18 years
> There are dozens of situations that would be considered rape if it were male on female that would be laughed out of a courtroom if it were female on male


Case in point: No one would give a fuck about a dude who didn't want sex, but just laid there and didn't say anything when his girlfriend grabbed his dick. He would - RIGHTLY - be laughed at if he tried to claim this constituted rape. Get the fuck over yourself.

Yotsuba& is good at that.

It fails a bit in calvin and hobbes as Calvin's views and dialogue are often that of an adult. It's a small issue, but seeing calvin discuss social issues as someone in his 40's when he's just some dumb bratty 6 year old is ruins what calvin's character is supposed to capture.

This doesn't make sense. If this was in 2011, why would they be mentioning Trump?

She wasn't scared of Hopeful President Trump.
Trump has always been in peoples' nightmares.

This is probably my favorite strip after the record one that's been posted twice.

This isn't Trump's first ride on the meme train.

I don't know what you want. Trump has been a round a long time and a lot of people have thought he was a nut for just as long. He was a running joke in Bloom County through the '80s, even.

Peanuts was one of the first things I read on my own. I must've been only six years old when I saw that strip printed in the newspaper. One of my earliest memories is of my mom telling me that Charles Schultz died. I was sad, but glad he got to finish his strip.

here's my favorite Calvin and Hobbes.

I read lots of newspaper comics when I was little, always showed them to my dad when one made me laugh, but they rarely ever did the same for him, except for that one, I can still see him smiling

I like the strip where Calvin and Hobbes are playing with an oiuja board and Calvin asks if he will ever be president. The board spells "G-O-D-H-E-L-P-U-S" before Calvin kicks it.

Charles Schultz lived in my hometown and built an indoor skating rink there.
His favorite table in the cafe is permanently reserved for him, though technically anyone can sit there if they want to.

Glad to see i'm not the only one who enjoys the series. Definitely a major part of my childhood.

Went out and got the big box and still reread it once and a while.

>that big dumb bully moe punched me at school
Holy shit, there were some depressing stories with Moe. Anyone remembers when Moe stole Calvins toy truck and Calvin spend several strips trying to get the courage to confront him?

When he finally did Moe beat Calvin up and kept the truck.
