Calvin & Hobbes Exit The House of Mystery




My father never really understood my fascination with comics growing up, but comic strips were another thing.  He enjoyed strips like For Better or For WorseRobotman, Mother Goose and Grimm and especially Calvin and Hobbes.  It was nice to have  something that we could both enjoy despite the difference in our ages.  And hey, now that I am showing him and my Mom my favorite superhero flicks for movie nights, he's even coming around to what I loved about comic books.

Great work!

There was a Grimjack issue were a middle age Calvin was shown working at a murder-for-hire business. No really.

My Dad got me into comic strips, and though he never shared my level of interest in comic books, there were two titles he really enjoyed that we could share and talk about: Kamandi and Jon Sable, Freelance.

Two of my favorites, and a good match and good situation! Interesting how their styles mesh well!

Calvin/Joker... with the Joker declaring that Calvin is "too weird"...

You know you want to.

I second Simreeve's motion.
