Make sure to check out my own new original webcomic Captain Cax! phill-art.deviantart.com/art/M…

Here's my other H&B strips- phill-art.deviantart.com/galle…

I've always loved Calvin and Hobbes since I was really young. I recently came across a spin off comic on facebook by the guys from PANTSAREOVERRATED.com www.pantsareoverrated.com/page… It's based on Calvin and Susie as adults, where they are married and they have a daughter named Bacon (As far as her name I though it was awkward at first, but someone pointed out she is really named "Francis" and "Bacon" is the cute nickname her parents have given her. This would fall in line with the philosophical names of (John) Calvin and (Thomas) Hobbes). Sadly they only made four strips , so I'd like to continue it. It really inspired me and I instantly thought of the potential different directions it could go, while still being loyal to Bill Watterson's style. What I loved most about Watterson's work was it wasn't confined to the real world, it went into Calvin's imagination, which gave all sorts of different visuals that a lot of newspaper funnies missed out on.

I have over 10 other strip ideas with Hobbes and Bacon that I want to share.

I'm really on the fence about continuing this, I've been doing a lot of reading on Watterson recently. He's very protective of his work and has the attitude that his work should stop with his retirement. It really would be selfish of me to continue it. Gahh, maybe just a few more... > < I love Calvin and Hobbes so much.

Tsk.&nbsp; I understand that the artist must retain control, but it is such a disappointment when the artist chose to suppress someone elses's self-expression.&nbsp; I'm in somewhat the same boat myself.

Yep, it's hard for me to not be empathetic for both sides.

I love your artwork. You've got the style down.

That's why it's called "fan-fiction", so the fans can enjoy new stuff from some one else willing to carry the baton.
Well done!
I too was and still am a huge fan of Calvin & Hobbes and I'm glad to see that the fun hasn't stopped yet even though the original creator has.

I wouldn't worry too much about whether or not to continue your fan comic.

 "Just because something is imaginary doesn't mean it is not real." :) (Smile)  Imaginationland South Park

"I... Um... because I think... they are real. It's all real. Think about it. Haven't Luke Skywalker and Santa Claus affected your lives more than most real people in this room? 

I mean, whether Jesus is real or not, he... he's had a bigger impact on the world than any of us have. 
And the same could be said of Bugs Bunny and, a-and Superman and Harry Potter. Oops! 

They've changed my life, changed the way I act on the Earth. Doesn't that make them kind of "real."? 
They might be imaginary, but, but they're more important than most of us here. And they're all gonna be around long after we're dead. 

So in a way, those things are more realer than any of us."Heart

It's a great story. Giving the Bacon nickname... Very cute.

And you are so right about how important imagination is. That's what brings us here. ☺️

Calvin warned her...

i bet Calvin signed her up for the classes so she wouldn't go through what he went through

I like this theory. Also, he probably didn't try to get her to learn how to play baseball or ride a bike also to avoid what he went through

Calvin and Hobbes is what I wanted my childhood to be like. Hobbes and Bacon is what I want my children's childhoods to be like (after I get married that is)
