    Awesome! Toss up between C&H and Bloom County for my favorite strip.

    I wish he'd bring back C&H, but I guess he was done with it. I love anything winter / snowman.

    C&H are the best! I'm a big fan of Bill Watterson.

    A couple of years ago I started a 'C&H v Far Side' thread.

    Had a ton of great contributions from TB'ers who shared their love for both.

    Awesome!! Thank you so much embellisher - I'm off to share these with some of our family artists on Facebook.
     
  10. Epic. Huge C&H fan since I was a kid.

    I know he said he's done with cartoons, but it would be great to seem him make a comeback in another medium, the world needs more Watterson!

    When I was in college in the 1980s, I would forgo meals to save money to buy the next BloomCounty book. And that is when I weighed 50 pounds more than I do now.

    And so it continues. Unfortunately, Outland (Bloom County's successor) went downhill pretty quickly.

    Outland was dark- people want to laugh.
    His politics went from crunchy granola to the sky is falling in one fell swoop.
    All I ever wanted at 18 years old was a Bill The Cat tattoo.
    It's never too late...

    Outland started as dark, and could have been interesting, but he bowed to the pressure, and tried to give them Bloom County take 2. Like Gary Larson, or Barry Sanders, it is better to stop a year too early rather than a year too late, like Willie Mays, or the Who.

    I've always loved Calvin and Hobbes. But now it's like a window into my world ...
