If you’re anything like me, then you consider Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes to be one of the pinnacles of newspaper comics. Indeed, reading today’s comics page is a pretty depressing exercise, as you’ll be hard-pressed to find a strip with as much artistry and humor as Calvin and Hobbes.
There has been no end to the Calvin and Hobbes knock-offs, imitations, parodies, and whatnot since the strip ended in 1995. But few have captured the spirit, aesthetic, and whimsy of Calvin and Hobbes as well as Hobbes & Bacon, a fan-made series that takes place 26 years after the end of Watterson’s strip and imagines the adventures of Bacon (Calvin’s daughter) and a certain stuffed tiger.
