Calvin and Hobbes for Wacky Wednesday 081512

Have I ever mentioned I adore the comic strip, Calvin and Hobbes?

Now I have.

Calvin and Hobbes was created by Bill Watterson and is now a syndicated comic strip.  “It follows the humorous antics of Calvin, a precocious and adventurous six-year-old boy, and Hobbes, his sardonic stuffed tiger. The pair are named after John Calvin, a 16th-century French Reformation theologian, and Thomas Hobbes, a 17th-century English political philosopher. While Watterson no longer produces new stories for the comics, Calvin and Hobbes can still be purchased in trade paperback format in bookstores everywhere.

The picture below is one of the iconic renderings of the two characters.

I also like how other artists have taken the image below and in their own ways have run away with it.

And my personal favorite:
