Calvin And His Snow Men

Forgive me for the sneaky tactics but I was hoping this title might attract attention from some of my fellow Calvinists. 

Calvin and Hobbes is a syndicated daily comic strip that was written and illustrated by American cartoonist Bill Watterson, and syndicated from November 18, 1985, to December 31, 1995. It follows the humorous antics of Calvin, a precocious and adventurous six-year-old boy, and Hobbes, his sardonic stuffed tiger. The pair are named after John Calvin, a 16th-century French Reformation theologian, and Thomas Hobbes, a 17th-century English political philosopher(Wikipedia)

Even though the cartoon strip was a favorite of my former pastor, there are no latent theological or philosophical messages.  

I just posted these cartoons because of their weird and sometimes sinister style of humor.   

ENJOY!

One of the greatest comic strips of all time! Many have imitated C&H but, none have the come close to the quality of Watterson's humor and depth.
