The Dad from Calvin & Hobbes

Mike's favorite comic strip of all time is Calvin and Hobbes, by the great Bill Watterson. It is pure magic, and here are Mike's thoughts on one of his all time favorites:

"It perfectly captures the silliness of childhood as a counterpoint to the "normal" everyday stresses we feel as adults.  I often wondered what kind of father I would be.  And whether I would win any weird face contests."

It's amazing what an impact comics and books - both the art and the words - can have on us as children, and what we remember as adults. Do you have a favorite comic strip or children's book from childhood, or today? And if you're a Dad, is there a Dad out there in cartoon land you identity with?

One Calvin and Hobbes strip is never enough - here's a blog that posts one C&H comic every day from the archives, and a rare interview with cartoonist Bill Watterson himself.
