This Calvin and Hobbes comic strip is as relevant now as it was back in the 1980’s.

The fact that this Calvin and Hobbes comic strip is as relevant today as it was back in the 1980’s is just astounding. Think about it… back then, America was fearful of war, leery of the Russians, questioning our own country’s political leadership… and KIDS HATED LIMA BEANS!

Have we stepped into a time machine without knowing it? Are we on some hidden camera reality show? Is it still the mid-80’s?!

We may never know if Bill Watterson was a future-telling prophet or just the brilliant mind behind Calvin and Hobbes, one of the greatest contributions to pop culture history; but what we do know is his work still holds up today.
