Bill Watterson’s College Artwork

Sound effects

Like probably many of you out there, I’m a huge fan of Calvin and Hobbes; man, a good 17 years I’ve been reading this strip. Heck, almost my entire life. I love that every time I come back to it, it gets smarter. As a young kid I reveled in the slapstick, in Calvin’s mistreatment of his parents, babysitters, and Susie. A little older, and all the wonderful commentary and wit made chuckle till I rolled out of my chair. And now, as I read, I sit and ponder the life I am living and what kind of man I am. Am I a good husband and father? Yikes! Deep stuff.

Here’s some early Watterson artwork from his college years. More here. (via)

  1. Frickin’ Calvin & Hobbes. If you like it I surmise you had a penis and were born between 1978 – 1986. Am I right? Am I right?
