    The world is a darker place without Calvin and Hobbes 🙁


    does that say “thinning of the nerds” now thats just not right, lol seems to make sense what with the computer at the beginning.


    I read it as “thinning of the herd”, but my eyesight sux, even w/ glasses. I fukin love Calvin and Hobbes.


    1/1/95: death of the Far Side
    12/31/95: death of Calvin & Hobbes

    worst year evar for comic strips


    Calvin & Hobbes is the best! est!


    i suspect bill waterson is under a pen name doing other work, but have no proof.

    the 10th anniversary collection does a nice job portraying the evolution of his Sunday panels. by this time he abandoned quarter page sunday strips and offered only 1/3 page and 1/2 page format. newspapers like the one in my hometown quit carrying it because they didn’t want to give up that much space. dicks.

    also, the 10th is not the best collection, but provides terrific insight into his growth as an artist and writer as well as what influenced him.


    If Watterson had kept doing Calvin & Hobbes all these years it probably would be just another Garfield today.


    One side of me want more of C&H, but another side of me is grateful that Bill Watterson didn’t just continue making the comic for the sake of money and degrading teh content.


    Korinthian what is your educational background?


    Korinthian: have you read the introduction to the Tenth Anniversary edition of C&H? Watterson explains at great length how he went out of his way to defend his content at the expense of money, even to the point of losing artistic rights to the comic (it was standard practise for new cartoonists to sign these over to publishers). Watterson trod on a lot of publishers’ toes by insisting that C&H never be merchanised, then he trod on a lot of other cartoonists’ toes by insisting that the cartoon be published in newspapers in full half page format, leaving room for fewer others. Diplomacy in these matters may not be his strong point, but there’s no way in hell he can be accused of selling out.

    That’s his side of the story, anyway. If anyone else knows of any facts that contradict this, fire away.


    Also, from memory, the cartoon above does read “thinning of the herds”, not “thinning of the nerds”.


    You are dead on correct. I have read Watterson’s story and he is the man.
    Ignore Korinthian.
    I do.
    we all do…






    It is “thinning of the herds”. Don’t fear, fellow internet nerds, we’re safe.
