I’ve enjoyed Calvin and Hobbes since the beginning and own several of “their” books. I see a distinct similarity between C & H and now Cow and Boy which I believe to be just as insightful, but edgier. I hope I’m not out of place here, recommending another comic, but give it a shot. Here’s a review I found on Amazon.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews4 of 4 people found the following review helpful5.0 out of 5 stars Expect Hilarity July 26, 2009By Aaron K. SmithFormat:PaperbackI started reading Cow & Boy online, where I read all the strips I follow, without expecting much. There are lots of comics dealing with a child and their animal companion, most of which are not likely to thrill. Unlike those, however, Cow & Boy is not simply about an child and his animal. It’s about life, growing up, having adventures, anxiety, outright fear, stupid stunts, politics, current events, obsession, etc all through the eyes of the wise yet semi-naive Cow and the precocious Billy.
Although I am loathe to make this comparison for fear of pigeon-holing the artist, Mark Leiknes have a perfected a tone of voice that can bring out the hilarity and outright silliness in situations that you and I deal with every day. This particular voice has only been expressed by one other author that I know of, Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes. Is Cow & Boy and a Calvin and Hobbes knockoff? Heck no! Leiknes has his own way of telling stories and setting up punchlines. Cow and Billy are very different characters from Hobbes and Calvin. The similarity between Watterson and Leiknes is not in style but rather in the ability to expose your deepest concerns and treat them will comfort and insightful humor.
The bottom line is this: Cow & Boy is downright hilarious. From Cow’s obsession over Hollywood stars to Billy’s endless ideas for adventure and/or payoff. You will not regret getting this collection. I doubt, in fact, that it will take you more than one sitting to feverishly read through the entire book. You’ll kick yourself for not finding this strip sooner, and you beg for another collection to be published.

Quite interesting your take on Mitt’s early spiritual journey. I’m hoping you’ll also give your take on Barack’s early spiritual journey with Reverend Jeremiah Wright! I just checked him out on Wikipedia and am sure it’ll be far more interesting and entertaining than poor Mitt annoying the French. Don’t let us down.
