A Gallery of Calvin and Hobbes Art


I was going to make another Starcraft post here, about like the top ten best matches or something, but I figured you guys would kill me, so I’m switching gears to something a little less hardcore.

Calvin and Hobbes is many people’s favorite comic strip for many reasons. It was well drawn, intelligent, hilarious, and never went on past its prime. It’s no wonder that so many artists want to create their own versions of the characters, and I’ve assembled the best ones I could find here.

Thanks to the always talented DeviantArt pool for most of these.

  1. Calvin and Hobbes collections taught me how to read. Seriously.
    I somehow remember that when I was in school my teacher told my parents I was “slow to learn reading.” I am not sure but I think I was just very uninterested in the standard fairy tales and fables stuff they love to teach kids. Anyway then I saw Revenge of the Baby Sat in an airport gift shop. Somehow I just knew I had to try this book.
    Low and behold my mind opened up to reading just like that. Sure half of the humor was over my head but I was asking my parents all the time what this word meant and such.
    Calvin and Hobbes saved my childhood imagination in a way. And certainly began my love of the written word. If you’ll excuse me I’ve got a very thick book to read thanks to Bill Waterson.

  2. Calvin is the kid. Hobbes is the tiger.

    The one that you titled “Don’t Wake Calvin!” should be titled “Don’t Wake Hobbes!”

  3. Calvin is the kid. Hobbes is the tiger.

    So the drawing that you titled, “Don’t Wake Calvin!” should be titled “Don’t Wake Hobbes!”
