The Calvin and Hobbes comic strip is one of pop cultures most enduring treasures.
Yes, Bill Watterson’s newspaper strip was funny and well-drawn. But, it was digging for more than just laughs: At it’s core, the comic was focused on the joy of friendship, the wonder of childlikeness and the hope for a better tomorrow.
On Dec. 31., 1995, the final strip ran. Its message was simple: The future is unwritten. Have hope. Explore. And, most of all, try to enjoy the ride.
