calvin and hobbes
Episode 324 is a double-feature extravaganza! First up is the return of Johnathan Lewis from Penumbra, a comic from Shades of Vengeance! To conclude this episode, I talk with Creator Jason Yungbluth about his series and his recent successfully concluded Kickstarter project.
Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes comic strips are some of the best things you will ever read. For a collector original strips are hard to come by, but over the Thanksgiving weekend, the final Sunday strip sold on the auction block for $10,157.50.
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.
The first appearance of Black Panther by Jack Kirby, original Peanuts strips, and an ultra rare Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes strip from 1987 hit the auction block in May.
Recent discussions about the fate of Thag Simmons had me thinking about days long ago past, where reading the newspaper meant discovering items of world interest, seeing who was looking to hook up, and best of all, the comic section. Back in my day (yeah, yeah, quiet you), there were two must read strips that would never disappoint – The Far Side by Gary Larson, and Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson.

This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast – Elijah Snow gives us the cold shoulder, Magic: The Gathering, Cloaks #1, Adam 12 #6, Dark Ages #2, Wayward #1, and the battle of the century between Calvin and Charlie Brown!
I love it when fine Spoilerites (like you) write in with comments and suggestions about the site, or offer up an idea for the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week. This week, Silvergray returns with a battle that is a bit bizarre and one we would really be interested in seeing play out. This week, it’s a battle of the comic strip stars! In one corner the star of Calvin and Hobbes, the six-year-old with the imagination – CALVIN! In the other corner, the kid with the bald head and a father who is a barber – Charlie Brown! FIGHT!
Press Release The original artwork for the recent three comic strip collaboration between Bill Watterson, the reclusive genius behind the much-loved Calvin and Hobbes comic strip, and Pearls Before Swine cartoonist Stephen Pastis – taking place in a three day run in June 2014 in Pearls – will be sold at Heritage Auctions on Aug. 8, 2014, with proceeds from the sale benefitting The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
During the summer of 2012, director Joel Allen Schroeder started a Kickstarter campaign for $50,000 to finish up his Calvin & Hobbes centered documentary. Collecting almost double what was asked, Schroeder has been able to finish up the film and the release date is closing in. While we wait for the day to watch the full film, watch the first trailer now!
