Joker and Lex

(click to enlarge)

If you’re like me, you grew up on Calvin and Hobbes books, and miss the series dearly to this day. Bill Watterson pulled a Seinfeld and went out on top, and isn’t coming back, but that doesn’t mean his style can’t live on.

Artists Azzarello and Bermejo decided to see what it would be like if they subbed in DC supervillains for the titular characters, with Lex as Calvin and the Joker as an antagonistic Hobbes, who disapproves of Lex’s plans for superhero domination.

I don’t think there’s any more in the series, but it would be great if there were. I’d read an entire book with these two.

    That Lex looks like Mr. Mxyzptlk from Superman, the one Gilbert Godfried voiced.
