    @SpaceMan Spiff from yesterday

    The URL below leads to a web site where there is an interview with Bill Watterson of “Calvin and Hobbes” fame.

    It was done when he was still writing “Calvin and Hobbes”

    It’s worth the time to read the whole interview, but if you scroll down to where you see Calvin lying down with his back on Hobbes and then continue scrolling just a bit further until you see Krazy Kat on the left you’ll get the beginning of Bill Watterson’s views on his fellow cartoonists.

    As long as somebody is …
    Maybe that’s why people like to believe in secret societies running the world … that way, at least somebody has a plan!
    Or … this way you can blame somebody for all the problems in the world …
    Not that anybody needs help on that score.

    My Dad told me that the meek will inherit the world…so I’m guessing it will be Odie..

    Looks like he wants to go Egypt style.

    @pencilkid5,yesterday:
    I found your comments very rude to Jim Davis. This is his choice. You don’t tell who should stop doing their thing. It’s their life. Those actions you took could have consequences, and what I just did, too. I am only telling you what may happen if this goes on, and it could lead as a shut down of comment here. I don’t want to hurt you or be a dictator, but I am trying to help you so the comments like you had yesterday don’t go in a wrong direction.

    Oh, of course they do. Remember, dogs have masters; cats have staff!

    I have no problem with Garf’s assessment – prefer him to the prince of this world any day John 12:31 – but I think he and his cat colleagues may be sleeping on the job a lot.

    Like many forms of creative art, the quality of comic strips can be very subjective. I’ve been a fan of comics all my long life. I start my day with a smile reading the comics every day and I’m grateful for them. There have been great comics, poor comics and everything in between. In my (subjective) opinion the great classics are: Far Side, Blondie, Andy Capp, Wizard of Id, BC and, without any doubt on my part, Garfield. (Perhaps with honorable mention to Dilbert).

    I read the interview with Bill Watterson as suggested by Alexikakos. It was interesting. I found Watterson to be a bit arrogant and seemingly envious of the success of Jim Davis. Calvin and Hobbes, to me, was a mildly amusing strip, but certainly up to the quality of Garfield.

    Please, remember, that a comic strip creator must come up with a new idea every day. That’s 365 times a year for those of you who merely look at the comics for the pictures. Not one comic artist hits a winner every day. Yet, Jim Davis has provided an incredible number of winners for decades. I applaud him. And if one looks at comics for what they are, I think many agree that he continues to provide a goodly number of winners still today. If anyone thinks he/she can do better, I’m anxious to see him/her give it a try. I’m skeptical
