Calvin and Hobbes
Bill Watterson drew a daily comic strip that ran from November, 1985 to December, 1995--Calvin and Hobbes. It was one of the most-loved comics of the 20th century. I probably don't need to tell you, but Calvin was a spirited young boy with a powerful imagination, and Hobbes, was his stuffed tiger.
Twenty years after the strip ceased publication, Calvin and Hobbes still enjoy fame. You can read a daily reprint of the strips online at GoComics.com or sign up there to get Calvin and Hobbes delivered to you inbox daily.
Here at the Library we have a dozen Calvin and Hobbes compilations in our adult and young adult sections including, The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes: A Calvin and Hobbes Treasury [YA 741.5 WAT] and The Complete Calvin and Hobbes (in three volumes) [741.5 WAT].
Recently I learned of a effort by an artist, Gabriel de Laubier, who is taking the Calvin and Hobbes strips and turning them into 3-D renditions. The story behind this effort is fascinating--read about it here.
