Yesterday I was surfing and I stumbled on this blog The House of Sternberg ( http://house-of-sternberg.blogspot.com/2007/01/monday-blues.html ) , where he mentioned some of his favourite comics he used to read in the paper. I liked the fact he talked about Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes.I have loved these comics for years. I have several comic books and it is always fun to take them off the book shelve and leaf through them, cause they are so much fun. Besides, for a 6-year old, Calvin has a very sharp mind at times. My all time favourites are the snowmen comics. They can get so cynical, cruel yet deep at times. But mainly they are just absolutely silly!!

There are many sites devoted to Calvin and Hobbes, but I like this one: http://www.transmogrifier.org/ch/comics/search.cgi
because you just type in a word/topic you want (e.g. snow) and you get all the related topics. So you can get a comic for almost for any occasion.

Bill Watterson made Calvin and Hobbes cartoons from 1985 till 1995 when he retired and devoted his time and talents to other things. Info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Watterson

Go and check them out. Everyone deserves a bit of fun.
