Calvin and Hobbes

No idea how long this web series will be online, but I have a feeling Bill Watterson will get a kick out of seeing this take on his Calvin and Hobbes newspaper strip.

This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, we continue or examination of newspaper strips with a look at Calvin and Hobbes.
