Popular comic strip, “Calvin and Hobbes” Ended Twelve Years Ago Today

Many Fans Felt Saddened

The World Became a Little Less Bright

Twelve years ago today, the world became a little more sober place. Twelve years ago, a tiny corner of joy was extinguished for millions of readers of the daily comic strip, “Calvin and Hobbes”.

Twelve years ago, the last Calvin and Hobbes episode appeared. The strip, created by Bill Watterson, was a small window on human nature.

We felt much the same way when G. Larsen’s Far Side ended earlier in the same year. One year and two of our constant daily companions were gone. The daily comics page hasn’t been the same since.

C&H had been out for awhile before we were converted, but once a convert, it quickly became a daily habit to find, no matter what the location, a newspaper to check out Calvin and Hobbes.

From Wikipedia:
Calvin and Hobbes is a comic strip written and illustrated by Bill Watterson, following the humorous antics of Calvin, an imaginative six-year old boy, and Hobbes, his energetic and sardonic—albeit stuffed—tiger.
