Glomping Erin seems like a dangerous idea.
Hobbes is a tiger, your argument is invalid.

Also, he does not Glomp.

No.

No, No No No No.

See this is the problem I always have with people "Revisiting" classic cartoons. They always feel they have to make it darker. Like having Charlie Brown kill Lucy for pulling the ball away. Or Calvin's parents putting him on anti-psychotics.

The old strips' innocence is what made them good. Well, C&H was also good because of the way Calvin and Hobbes would tackle existential questions, but that's another story.

People using the characters like this is just stupid. It's basically saying "hurr, hurr, Hobbes is Swearing!"

The only time I've seen classic characters used well were those Bacon and Hobbes strips.

These Erin and Hobbes strips come across as the writers just saying "Hey LOOK! We're Using characters from another cartoon! Like Us because you like them! Do you like us yet?"

...then again, that's kind of what Crit Miss has been doing ever since Erin's hallucinations started. hmm...

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! DON'T DO THIS! THIS IS NOT NEEDED!
Look at what Krantos said. He's right. Although I don't mind Erin's video-game hallucinations, I do greatly mind watching my old innocent friend Hobbes turn into the worst stereotype of an XBox Live player.

Don't. Do. This.

Agreed wholeheartedly.

This smacks of laziness. The same kind of inane garbage that Waterson has spoken against in regards why he never licensed Calvin and Hobbes anywhere. This, if anything, is validation of his point.




Man, nothing brings out the condescension of others more than a slightly unoriginal comic strip, huh? :D

Heh, see, now I found it totally hilarious.

It isn't simply, "Look how funny it is when Hobbs uses naughty language." It's more, "Call of Duty on X-Box live would corrupt even Hobbs."

Anyway, I was surprised to see that Calvin and Hobbs has a borderline religious following.

I guess I need to read Garfield Minus Garfield with new eyes now, and consider that there might be huge fans of Garfield offended to outrage by the corruption of the strip.
