Calvin and Hobbes by MacIomhair Calvin and Hobbes by MacIomhair
Back in 1997, My dad received a book from America for My Mum's penpal. The book was "The Essential Calvin and Hobbes" the first treasury of Bill Watterson. Once i layed eyes on the book and the comic inside it was no longer my dad's book. I went straight to my room with it and read the entire treasury.

After that i continued by purchasing the entire collection of the comics. For me it was the ultimate comic. On this the 10th anniversary of first reading Calvin and Hobbes it seems only fitting that I remember it with this piece. The book is still in my room....

About the picture:

The image was taken from one of the trips that Calvin and his family went camping. The original picture was in Black and white and i simply coloured it in.

I love calvin and hobbes, and I have so many great memories of reading them as a kid - so thank you for making this and for telling your story - It's wonderful to know that other people share this thing with me - thank you.

Calvin and Hobbes remind me of my brother and I. We're exactly like them. Kyle's Calvin, and I'm Hobbes
