I Like Bread: Looks interesting, but something tells me I couldn't stand to watch this.

For most people, C+H was an elegantly-drawn strip featuring a mascot they'd idolize like G.I. Joe, or point and laugh at like Jon Arbuckle, or want to adventure with like Tin Tin. For me, Calvin's real life struggles were my struggles and he championed through them in a way I wished I had the strength to do. He was the closest thing to therapy I ever had. So yeah - I'm that guy. I'm probably the only person on Earth (besides Bill) who's happy that C+H wasn't licensed into ubiquitousness. It'd be like my daughter getting a job as a stripper.


As a kid, I wanted nothing more than a Hobbes doll (plush, whatever) of my own, and I would scour the mall looking for one. I mean, you couldn't throw a rock without hitting a Garfield doll or a Snoopy doll, so where the hell was Hobbes? I was always dejected (and furious) when I'd leave with my parents.

Now, I completely understand why he did it. Not only did he protect the integrity of the strip by preventing its super-saturation of the media market, he made it almost mythical in doing so. I don't know if the latter was intentional, but it's about the greatest thing that could have happened to the strip. I would buy Mr. Watterson however many beers it would take to sit down and have a chat.

A pity that the sabbatical basically became retirement.
