    I loved Calvin and Hobbes and it's neat to see some new stuff, but wow does Watterson sound kind of crazy.

    Another one along those lines was "Bloom County" by Berkeley Breathed. The cat always looked like he was choking on a hair ball or had been zapped with electricity.

    Any of you guys remember a comic strip in the alligator called the institution? It ran in the late 80s.

    If it weren't for my Calvin and Hobbes books, my youngest would not have read anything at all.
