Grown-up “Calvin and Hobbes”?

I shared this with some of my friends a few weeks ago, but thought it was worthy of a blog post. A few authors have taken to continuing/updating Bill Watterson’s seminal comic strip. Read this piece for the full info:

While I think all of the attempts pretty accurately mimic the original’s artistic style, there’s no way they can ever truly recapture the heart of the series. That said, the authors of these updated strips are clearly fans of the original C&H, and I think they’ve done a pretty impressive job, especially “Calvin and Company.”

Of course, nothing is ever going to top the original. The last strip is perfect:
