To the die-hard Calvin & Hobbes fans, my post is 4 U too because I know you love them and hold them close to your heart. Depending on what age we each discovered and became friends with Calvin & Hobbes, it can have powerful nostalgia. I know you would want someone to defend our boy and his tiger and his creator and I know you will defend them too. <3 you guys.
I’m all for creativity, but I honestly don’t like this AT ALL. I don’t like it when people try to alter or predict Calvin & Hobbes in the present or future. That is for Bill Watterson to say. He is the genius who created these unique characters and he was extremely protective of them & only he should say what happened to them. Especially in print. I truly believe Mr. Watterson would keep Calvin 6 years old then, now & always. Calvin didn’t age from 1985-1995 so I’m sure he’s still 6 to Bill and to his die-hard fans. We may wish he had written more adventures with C&H or licensed them..etc…but in actuality, the fact that Bill didn’t want any of that commercialism makes him who he is as a person and in turn is what makes Calvin & Hobbes who they are. I am looking at them right now as Bill drew them and I feel comforted and happy. When I look at these alterations of his characters I feel sick to my stomach and feel they are trying to use C&H to get more readers. Please leave Calvin & Hobbes alone and let them go sledding together down that hill of newly fallen snow…and into our hearts forever just as they were and still are today…Love you 4ever Calvin & Hobbes & Bill Watterson. To the die-hard Calvin & Hobbes fans, my post is 4 U too.
