Hobbes and Bacon 3 by Phill-Art Hobbes and Bacon 3 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 recently 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 want to share.

I'm really on the fence about continuing this, I've been doing a lot of reading on Watterson recently. 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.

As long as it's non-profit, I see no harm in making these.

People do it all the time.

And the reason I'm saying this is because I miss Calvin and Hobbes too. Heck, it got me into art in the first place!

You do a great job!! :D

Just can get enough. So amazing, wish you would do more! I like how you took Hobbes and Bacon from the other two artists and did some more, it's amazing! You've done a really splendid job. Are you to do anymore?

Quick question: I looked up the original Calvin & Bacon and aren't you just doing a spinoff of a spinoff? You should just do your own continuation of Calvin and Hobbes like others have done. You have the style down and can write your own strips. Why not create your own instead of deriving from a pre-existing continuation? Just feels like you're taking from 2 sets of artists now. Just sayin'  that's the impression. Please let me know if I'm wrong.
