Bowling for Calvin, Hobbes
An offhand reference in a review of Fantagraphics' new "Locas" collection of Jaime Hernandez' "Love and Rockets" comics led to my googling "final calvin hobbes strip watterson" because I never did see the last "Calvin and Hobbes" strip. Now I have, via a profoundly weird (and not a little creepy) web page which finds similarities between "Calvin and Hobbes" and the Columbine school shootings.
"From Calvin and Hobbes to Eric and Dylan: some visual cues"
The fine line between the post-modern and the delusional blurs a little further. Apophenia, anyone?
