This week has been Bill Watterson week. My son is visiting his big sister, so I had a little extra time to pull out my Calvin and Hobbes anthologies and ponder whether comics are or are not ‘coloring books.’ The humor, and excellent craftsmanship, have enriched my life, and my children’s– always reminding us to enjoy life to its fullest.

Here are two fan tributes to Bill Watterson:

Enjoy the ride and the conversation on the way back up the hill.   (ツ)

  1. For the past few years, I have been emailing my wife and a few other “followers” the Cartoon of the Day – 3 strips of C&H. It is a great way to start the day (Just about 1/2 way through). 🙂
