Earlier this year, the webcomic Pants Are Overrated made tribute to Bill Watterson’s classic strip by aging Calvin 26 years and focusing on his daughter, Bacon (a fantastic reference). The Hobbes and Bacon strips were a huge hit for the unexpecting artists, and they stressed that it would not be a regular feature. It was just something they wanted to do.
I forgot about this until PAO decided to come to an end, but not without putting out one last Hobbes and Bacon story. They capture Watterson’s style flawlessly. If, when reading these, your heart doesn’t melt or you don’t tear up just a little, you’re probably an asshole….or a robot.
Someone called the cops on us around 1:30 last night. There were ten of us playing CAH and I guess we were too loud for someone. Now in bed with the beasts, enjoying some leftovers and debating the merits of putting on pants.
