Oh ouch! (I guess that's analogous to how I view Mike Mignola. I love his 
stuff.... but not him.)

Wow... I sense a story here. I was only wondering if you knew why he 
brought Calvin and Hobbes to an end way back in 1988. In some of the last 
Calvin and Hobbes strips, the Calvin family had their house broken into and 
robbed. I was wondering if it was based on a real life situation.

Though I know nothing of Bill Watterson, I have always enjoyed the Calvin 
and Hobbes strips. Even more so that I'm not a young kid anymore. (though 
I'm still a kid... just not a young kid.) The Calvin and Hobbes strips 
attack a lot of societies stupidities... and I love it.

Oh well.. I'm rambling.
