Calvin and Hobbes : A sensation

Bill Waterson legendary character a tiny kid with a big head and even bigger appetite for getting into trouble entertained milions of its readers and is worshipped as a deity!! This character was able to ring a bell with many a readers who when growing up found taking old beaten road as boring as watching golf on a sunday morning, Calvin is a rebel with a cause he is able to bring out the situations which truly reflects the world today

Bill waterson made Calvin die a natural death to the shocks of his ardent followers, he did not allow the character to grow up in age !! Though mind you this kid had more more acumen than any other adult....

Calvin s accomplice in crime bring a much needed restraint to Calvins overbearing character, he is a perfect foil for Calvins yammering and does his cynical job rather wonderfully....

I still read these strips and wonder on the creative juice which must have flowed in Waterson to create a true icon, Not sure whether such a genunine character will be ever be attempted, if attempted whether it will reach such a dizzying heights remains to be seen.
