Calvin & Hobbes, one of comics’ most brilliant works

 

        Translating humor from one language to another is often difficult, laborious and not very funny at all. It’s a big reason why I didn’t recommend cartoons such as the Simpsons or South Park in my last post. However, it can be a rewarding experience to understand the humor of another culture. A simple way to absorb humor is through comic strips, so today I’d like to introduce you to “the last greatest newspaper comic”of the 20th century, Calvin & Hobbes, by Bill Watterson.

        Full of imaginative wit, expressive art, and touching on topics ranging from bullying, commercialism, environmentalism, art and philosophy, it continues to be a source of inspiration for writers, artist and comedians today.
