Hobbes and Bacon 2 by Phill-Art Hobbes and Bacon 2 by Phill-Art
Here's my other H&B strips- phill-art.deviantart.com/galle…

I've always loved Calvin and Hobbes since I was really young. I came across a spin off comic on facebook by the guys from PANTSAREOVERRATED.com www.pantsareoverrated.com/page… It's based on Calvin and Susie as adults, where they are married and they have a daughter named Bacon (As far as her name I though it was awkward at first, but someone pointed out she is really named "Francis" and "Bacon" is the cute nickname her parents have given her. This would fall in line with the philosophical names of (John) Calvin and (Thomas) Hobbes). Sadly they only made four strips, so I'd like to continue it. It really inspired me and I instantly thought of the potential and different directions it could go, while still being loyal to Bill Watterson's style. What I loved most about Watterson's work was it wasn't confined to the real world, it went into Calvin's imagination, which gave all sorts of different visuals that a lot of newspaper funnies missed out on.

I have over 10 other strip ideas with Hobbes and Bacon that I wanted to share.

I'm really on the fence about continuing this, I did a lot of reading on Watterson. He's very protective of his work and has the attitude that his work should stop with his retirement. It really would be selfish of me to continue it. Gahh, maybe just a few more... > < I love Calvin and Hobbes so much.

BRILLIANT!! I love how Calvin is still in conflict with piles of leaves even when he is grown up.

It really captures the spirit of the strip, but with an adult twist. It's great.

Calvin kind of reminds me of Neil Patrick Harris.

Actually I'm extremely disappointed in Calvin for now seeing Hobbes as a stuffed toy. Ok, I can acknowledge the generational premise, that he and Susie have a kid (I don't like the name for that kid - I get it - Francis Bacon - but you could have done better than that, Bacon just isn't a good first name! Maybe Newton. Or possibly Pascal) and that she might have a hobbes-like thing going on, a stuffed animal that is real to her. But NOT if it's the ACTUAL HOBBES as a hand-me-down from her father Calvin! If it's actually the original Hobbes, then HE should be able to see Hobbes as he *really* is as well, he shouldn't have merely turned into his own father.
