    The first half-page Sunday strip. I notice that Watterson numbered the panels in this one.

    Honestly this really shows why it’s an amazing strip. Not just playing safe but really pushing the comic strip as an art form. Don’t get me wrong, Calvin and Hobbes isn’t the first strip to be philosophical or push boundaries on the strip format but I feel he really pushed the medium.

    Watterson has been saying since day one that comic strips could be taken serious as an art form, but creativity was being stifled by things like rigid panel layouts that were more designed for newspaper convenience than artistic freedom. Given the freedom to lay out his Sundays any way he liked, Watterson would go on to make some amazing Sunday displays and give comic strips a shot in the arm it desperately needed at the time.
