Well I don't know about you guys but I can't imagine another comic in which I can associate better with. I'm not that huge of a comic fan but this was the best there EVER was. Calvin is like my ID and Hobbes my Super Ego. Join them together and add lots of inflation and "KAPLOOEE" you've got my ego! I love Calvin's quotes and idea's, so much I decided to post some of my favorites. SO please join me in busting a gut (as my mom would say).
A perfect example of why I love this comic:
When faced with the delema of naming a giant monster snowman Calvin called him; and I quote "The Torment Of Existance Weighed Against The Horror Of Nonbeing." And of course: "Scientific Progress goes "BOINK""
