With voting day behind us here in Belgium and the results being just that little bit too scary to my liking, I could do with a smile or two today. And whenever that happens, I find that turning to my Calvin and Hobbes collection always does the trick. There’s just something so recognisable about Watterson’s work that either makes you laugh because you’ve thought the exact same thing this way too clever 6-year-old has, or comforts you because you’re clearly not the only OR first one to recognise there’s something quite wrong with certain things. Don’t believe me? Take a look at some of my favourites!
So there you go! If you’re having a so-so start of the week, as well (OR perhaps even if you swing the same way I do when it comes to voting and are currently in the same what-the-hell-is-going-on boat) I hope at least a few of these have made you smile today.
Even so, as funny as the comics above are, I wanted to share a couple more. Just because they’re so clever, topical (unfortunately) and close to my heart, and to show you - if you didn’t know all that much about the comics, how brilliant Bill Watterson’s Calvin & Hobbes truly was AND is.
All featured comics are - of course - courtesy of Bill Watterson, found all across Pinterest and Google. Try looking yourself and you won’t stop finding good ones, I promise. ;-)
