For help on how to follow a comic title,
This strip originally appeared on January 5, 1989. (I checked in a Calvin and Hobbes archive). GoComics is re-printing these in chronological order and did not cherry pick this strip for its seeming appropriateness to current affairs.
This is just a: 1) cosmic coincidence, and 2) a tribute to Bill Watterson’s ability to capture human traits. His body of work should be one for the ages.
That means that a 6 year old would be the “adult” in the room?

I look at the comments that use Calvin’s logic to bash both ends of the political spectrum. The fact that readers continue to find links between Waterson’s observations and contemporary events, more than 20 years after the strips concluded, demonstrate where the REAL genius lies.
I had to look it up but I remember it, I think, from “Band of Brothers.” Anyway, thanks for bringing up the reference.
Back in the early ’80’s 12% for a home loan was a good rate….
Happy Birthday, Calvin and Hobbes…..
There were two good tribute strips to Calvin and Hobbes that show Calvin as a grow-up. If you search for “hobbes and bacon” or “calvin and Company,” you can get some pretty decent approximations of what Calvin might have looked like a few decades down the road. I liked the Calvin and Company strip but they were served with a Cease and desist order…. there are still several of those strips around but ya gotta search for ’em
Without injecting any comment on current politics, I might observe that the sign of a classic work is its ability to offer timeless commentary.
