Kids today may not be as enamored with comic strips as their parents were back in the day – it really was the golden age of comics: Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, Bloom County. Some would include Garfield on this list, but that may vary depending on how you feel about cats.
Web Watch readers can generally agree – the Best Comic Strip of All Time is (was) Calvin & Hobbes.
Sure, there will be some naysayers that will claim that the best comic strip was The Far Side, or maybe Bloom County. Granted, those comics were awesome in their own way, but they never really captured the heart of what a daily strip was at the time to be looked at 20 years later in fondness for what might-have-been had it continued.
Comic fans around the world mourned when Bill Watterson decided to stop writing CALVIN & HOBBES. Considering how much demand there still is for various Calvin or Hobbes merchandise based on the sheer number of counterfeit “Calvin peeing” stickers one sees on the back of pick-up trucks around the country, it was only a matter of time before someone picked up the gauntlet for us fans.
