Hobbes and Bacon by Phill-Art Hobbes and Bacon by Phill-Art
Noticing more views and comments on these lately, is this posted somewhere?

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.

It's not so much the fan stuff Watterson hates, but the corporate greed that fuels franchise.

I always, always wanted to see Hobbes have an Epic Fail on his pouncing, just to let Calvin win once...

Old Joke, new twist, I wonder if it's going to be a reverse of the old staple of Hobbes getting Calvin, if so I approve.
