Calvin & Hobbes, Get Fuzzy, Mutts

These three comics - Calvin & Hobbes, Get Fuzzy and Mutts, always make me smile. They all three are very different styles but yet still touch me deeply.

The brilliant insight of Calvin, the 6 year-old genius and "man of the world and other worlds, as well" & Hobbes, his girl-loving, soft-hearted imaginary (or is he?) tiger who will pounce you just as soon as he'd hug you to death.

Then there is Get Fuzzy's Bucky Katt, that incorrigible little siamese with a penchant for stinky fish and rude comments - oh how I love him! And Satchel, the ever-so-sweet canine companion who is always looking towards finding ways to better the world for animals but even he has his limits sometimes (and those times are HILARIOUS!). Then there is their "human", Rob, who, if you ask me, really seems date-able, even though he hasn't had a girlfriend in years!

Mutts, ahhh dear, darling Mutts - Mooch and Earl and so very adorable, bestest of friends even though they are dog and cat. There is so much heartfelt goodness in that comic that you come away a better person for reading it.

So, even though comics are typically considered "for children" these really go beyond that and I HIGHLY recommend that each and every one of you check out the above mentioned comics, if you haven't already. I, personally, own all the books from each of the three collections above. I only wish there were more of them.

So check them out... Someday, you may just thank me :o)
