Calvin goes from grumpy to evil.
Hobbes wants no part of this.
Calvin’s evil smirk looks like his evil smirk of decals showing him urinating on something.
Aw, Susie, don’t let him get in your head!
Time to go all out positive around Calvin and send him into a deep dark spot! Deploy the Hobbes!
It’s like they’re already married.
And they grew up and became America’s version of Boris & Natasha and lived happily ever after.
Calvin looks a little like the Grinch in the last panel.
Love the expressions on both of them, amazing what can be done with a few simple lines
Calvin is really bugging Susie. Bugging, hmmm
Yup. Misery loves company. It is infectious, but so is a yawn and a laugh. Try to laugh more.
I hate to admit it, but Calvin’s actually on to something here!
Misery LOVES company!!
Calvin is one of the last people that I would want to hang with.
Calvin’s mood is catchy… like the flu.
I stand by what I said last time: This captures how society handles modern sentiment. This only cements that. Good thing the rest of the strip derails all that for good times.
Misery loves company but the feeling is not mutual.
OMG! My most recent ex-wife would stomp and fume and stay angry over petty little nit-pickings until everyone around her was in a foul mood. Then she cheered right up! One of many reasons she’s now my “ex”.
Misery creates company?? Thought the phrase was “misery loves company”…!!
Considering cement comes out of the BACK end of cement mixer, stepping in front isn’t such a bad idea…as long as it’s not in motion.
Calvin speaks for all Internet trolls.
Not a joke, but certainly a fantastic observation (these become more frequent in the last years of C&H). Bravo!
Love that Grinchy grin in the last panel.
Hey, if “when you’re smiling the whole world smiles with you” it stands to reason when you’re grumpy . . .
Calvin would probably enjoy Facebook ;p
Misery loves …
I think we’re approaching the end of the original run of Calvin and Hobbes, and this week’s strips demonstrate why. Calvin started out as the sort of irrepressible scamp we all wish we had been, but by this point he’s devolved into an unlikable little jerk… like we actually were. During the two weeks of the beanie story arc, Calvin was never fun, just anxious and obsessive. Here’s he’s just a $&@¥. My guess is somewhere along here Bill Waterson decided he shouldn’t spend any more time with this character unless he wanted to ruin Calvin forever.
At least his teacher doesn’t humiliate him like some of mine used to.
Yeah, I’ve known people like that.
Calvin is the poster boy of “The United Sociopaths Of America Organization” It creeps me out!
Yes, a pill — as in bitter medicine that is hard to swallow.
Calvin must be channeling Holden Caulfield…. God, I hated that book!
