Far Side or Calvin and Hobbes?

Personally, I'd go with Calvin, but tonight I was flipping through an old Far Side book and had tears I was laughing so hard. One of my favorites:

Bill Waterson's takes on realism combined with his high-minded philosophy kicks Larson in the ding-ding.

Don't get me wrong: The Far Side was punny, witty, and all that. But, Calvin and Hobbes was cartoons set at eleven.

Re: Far Side or Calvin and Hobbes? [re: RockyBalboa]

I think Calvin and Hobbes is better as a set. Sure the far side is good for a quick piece here and there tacked to an office door, but C&H works best when sitting down and reading through the books strip after strip on a Sunday afternoon. There's just so much going on with that comic from elementary slapstick to deep thoughts all from a child's wide-eyed perspective. I enjoyed Calvin and Hobbes as a child because I identified with Calvin. I think I'll identify with the comic just as much when I have kids of my own, but on a whole different level. The Far Side is good (really, really, really good), but as a whole Calvin and Hobbes is untouchable in the comic realm.

Re: Far Side or Calvin and Hobbes? [re: RockyBalboa]

This is a "Which Charlie's Angel is prettiest?" question.

The thread has made me realize the difference in genre-- Getting all in one frame versus using a series of frames. I remember that there used to be a drug store on the Drag where I stood like a giggling, guffawing idiot for about ten minutes reading every Far Side greeting card on the spinning rack.

I came to Calvin and Hobbes within a year of the strip coming to an end. I couldn't believe I'd been ignoring something so clever for so long.

At least we have Sally Forth in their place.

Perhaps someone can find and post for me my favorites from each strip. And I can't pick a favorite.

The Far Side

Two spiders have spun a web across the bottom of a playground slide. One spider says to the other, "If we pull this one off, we'll eat like kings for weeks!"

Calvin and Hobbes

The math atheist cartoon.

These days, I'm a Get Fuzzy kind of gal. It's the only dailly strip I read.

The last Far Side strip ran January 1, 1995 and the last Calvin & Hobbes ran on December 31, 1995. Both Larson and Watterson must have had mountains of cash offered to them over the past 13 years to continue, but they've shown that money's not at the top of their lists as far as priorities go, particularly Watterson. Now that's artistic integrity.

I loved both of them dearly. That said, I find my self digging out "The Pre-History of the Far Side" more often than any of my Calvin and Hobbes collections.

Ultimately, I'd put mid-80s Bloom County of either of them.

Dilbert is funny the first 200 or 300 times. After that, it's just mind-numbing, and occasionally depressing.

I have just about all the Calvin books around the house... no Far Side. Like them both, but I choose C&H.

Actually, Far Side isn't always a single pane. Here is my 2nd fav:



My first fav is also a multi-pane. It is the one above with the cows standing when nobody is looking.

I think Far Side is quite a bit better than C&H.

Calvin and Hobbes is more for liberal arts types. FS is for math/science people. Both are awesome, but I prefer C&H.

I re-read the complete works with my son a few years ago, and it has stood the test of time very well. Me and my son both loved it.

Knowing the lions preference for red meat, the Spamalopes remained calm...

but wary.

My little brother and I used to spit out Far Sides from across our dorm room at each other late at night when we couldn't sleep. I still remember laughing until it hurt with tears in my eyes.

I love Calvin and Hobbes, but Far Side brings back too many great memories for any other strip to beat it.

My new favourites are Zits and Candorville.

Re: Far Side or Calvin and Hobbes? [re: RockyBalboa]

The greatness of Calvin & Hobbes for me comes from this mix:

The ability of Watterson to include adult philosophical concerns with childhood antics with such precision.

The authentic childhood friendship between Calvin and Hobbes, from their dialogue to their antics

The calamity that Calvin's parents face on a daily basis concerning having a rambunctuous six year old kid.

The well-drawn scenes and situations. Nothing is better than watching the expressions of the characters as the situations arise. Calvin pretending to die from tasting his mom's dinner is a classic example.

My sons (11 and 9) love C&H. I've read the entire collection multiple times and now have it on my pc (html file linking to every cartoon).

I love FS, but I think C&H was/is better. You get more guffaws out of FS, but C&H could make you cry, laugh, wince etc. Just a complete work and a great collection.

And, it only gets better once you have kids and experience it from the other side, not just the calvin side.

It's not from Bill Watterson, it's from a fan. I forget now, but the fan was either suggesting how he wanted to see the series end, or he was commenting on children and ADD drugs. Or maybe it was both. But it wasn't from Watterson.

That would be tragic. Such a dismissal of Hobbes would be entirely in contrast with the spirit of the strip. Although, I could see it being a statement about ADD and modern drug use.
