    I thought we were supposed to get the final strip today… Did they seriously decide to skip that and go right to the early C&H strips?

    OK……. So……. Apparently GoComics has skipped the final strip and returned to the beginning of the first full year of Calvin and Hobbes. Yesterday we were at the end of 1995, and today’s strip is from January 5, 1986. Besides that, today’s first panel says 1995, but this has been added to the 1986 strip. The original was marked 1986, not 1995. Here is the original strip, with no 1995 in the first panel, and with 1986 in the space between the two middle panels in the bottom row:Click here for archive, or stretch image below: Calvin and Hobbes (January 5, 1986)

    Since the series has come to an end, I think that we should take today to pay tribute to Bill Watterson. Here is the final Calvin and Hobbes strip, from the last day of 1995:Click here for archive, or stretch image below: Calvin and Hobbes (December 31, 1995)And so, Calvin has the final word from Bill Watterson, as Calvin and Hobbes race downhill together and levitate above the ground one more time.And the final comment by Calvin’s ol’ buddy Hobbes, comparing the snow-covered ground to a big white sheet of paper, reminds us that this incredibly real world has been an imaginary one, in the form of an amazing comic strip.Thank you, Bill. We are all richer for having known you through Calvin and Hobbes. Thank you for the way in which you have touched our lives by transforming more than 3000 big white sheets of paper into a truly magical world.— “Hobbes”

    20 years ago when I saw, to my disgust, that my local newspaper replaced Calvin and Hobbes with Dilbert, I had no idea that the strip had actually concluded; I just assumed that they simply stopped carrying it. I was still just a kid back then and the internet was still too new at the time to look things up so it took me a long time until I eventually realized that the comic was over for good.

    Thank you Bill Watterson, for letting us all start our days, by seeing through the eyes of a six year old. Ok, an incredibly prolific, inexplicably articulate, and unfailingly mischievous six year old, but still. Thank you.

    I never knew of C&H when it was “live” so I just love it as something new and wonderful, not a rerun. I have nowhere near seen all of them. Roll ’em again!

    There is a short lived set of comics which explored a possible future of this strip called Hobbes and Bacon. You should Google it.

    This is a good gag, but rare example of weakness in execution for the strip. The sound effect in the final panel seems unnecessary and late. We can see what Susie did without explanation, and the chunk would have come as she shove him in, not while she’s already walking away. Remove that ‘chunk’ and it would be perfect.

    In contemplating on the new year, I find no better throught than that expressed by Calvin, " A New Year, A fresh clean start, a day full of possibilities, its a maigcal world … Let’s go exploring!"Yes indeed buddy, let’s go exploring. There is still a lot in front of us, let’s go!

    Personally, I kinda like the actual ending of “C&H”, since it leaves open the possibility that more is to come from the strip. (Would’ve been nice, anyway.) Too bad we didn’t see it here today, but our buddy Hobbes has come through once again …

    “Calvin & Hobbes” has really grown to be my favorite comic over the years. Love it.

    @JohninNCThanks for the info on “Hobbes and Bacon”. I’ll definitely be reading this strip.

    The first time I read the last strip, I didn’t realize it was the last strip until I read Watterson’s comment on it (it was one of those treasury books). I knew that Calvin and Hobbes had ended, but to actually read the last strip and to realize that it was the last strip…My evening quickly became an emotional one for me.

    Some day they may print 3/10/91. I tease my aging husband with it. I printed it out and have a copy hanging on the bathroom door.

    If that doesn’t epitomize the phrase “Revenge is a dish best served cold”, then I don’t know what would.
