Mona Great review!


message 2: by Zoeytron (new)

Zoeytron I can see a lot of work went into your review. Sure was good to see some of those comic strips again. Your analysis made sense, really liked the idea behind the effect of looming adulthood. Well done, Joseph!


ἀρχαῖος (arkhaîos) There is something about those two that touches the 'in-our-own-world' inner child in all of us. I admit to perusing the family C&H collection regularly. Thanks for the review.

Cecily A great review, with delightful examples (though not including my favourite*).

I'm pondering your opening question...

Thanks! And yeah, it took multiple hours to write and put together even after I knew what I wanted to say. But hey, now I know how to use tinypic.com, which I'd always wondered about but never had a good enough reason to look into.

You're welcome and good point. C&H seems as close to universally beloved as art gets so it really seems to resonate with people.

Ha ha, that's a good one too. Trying to come up with a top ten C&H comics would probably be impossible.

Cecily It's already been done at least twice, though doubtless no one would agree with all the selections:

http://nedhardy.com/2011/12/12/10-rea...

(And if 10 is not enough, there are lists of the "top" 25.)

Ha! That's a great one, Cecily.."Maybe we can make language a complete impediment to understanding" :)

Cecily Some people make a pretty good job of it (though verbing is rarely the cause).


message 12: by Janeymack (new)

Janeymack Well said. Personally I cannot articulate as well as you just did why I like C&H so much. All I know is, I (seriously) gauge whether a person can be my friend based on his/her reception to the comic. If s/he says s/he has not read C&H ever, that's already highly questionable. So I'll show them a strip, and if they fail to get the humor, they are unfriendzoned for life because clearly, we are not and won't ever be kindred spirits.

Tarique Ejaz This is a great review. I loved the way you were able to percieve Calvin's world and how he sees it. The mannerisms, the imagination of child come to life. Passing off such intense and realistic opinions on the world and life through mere musings.
