If so, check this comic out: Hobbs and Bacon:

    Huge fan of the old Calvin & Hobbes as well as Opus.

    Ohhhh, HECK yeah!! I know Bill Watterson was very protective of Calvin, resisting all sorts of marketing offers (the peeing "Calvin" on the back of half the pickup trucks in the U.S. is, from what I know, a blatant near-copyright-infringing ripoff) but this is awesome - and true to the original spirit of C & H.

    I really like how the "SHORT PANTS TOUCH MY FEET, OKAY!!" from the original strip are now Calvin's boxers in the first strip.

    And a subtle, veiled reference to Calvinball. WHO ARE THESE GUYS??? :cool2:

    That would be great to get something like that strip out there and daily, we love it at my house, the boys burned through all of my copies as soon as I introduced them to C&H.
