Yes, today marks 25 years since Calvin & Hobbes hit the newspapers. Bill Watterson made it a brilliant decade-long run, I can tell you that now. Let's celebrate!

C&H is perhaps my favorite comic strip ever. I was so sad when it ended.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

Me too. I don't understand how the correct answer could be deduced. And the navigation was very difficult. Only on the second time I played through it did I note the invisible arrows at the bottom that only become visible when you scroll over them.

I love this comic strip. One of the best ever written.
