I can still remember the first "Calvin and Hobbes" strip I ever read. It was in the Sunday paper and the drawing style was more akin to "Winnie
Winkle" than the more normal style of the strip. I'm not generally interested in such dramatic serials as "Winnie Winkle," so I'm not sure why I
was reading it. It portrayed a man and a woman arguing over an infant. It was both intriguing and confusing, but it all came together in the last
frame when it was revealed that the conversation was actually a dialogue between Calvin and his feminine nemisis/heartthrob, Susie Derkins, arguing
over her stuffed bunny. I was hooked. I didn't miss very many installments after that and I hated to see Bill Watterson move on.
Here's an article about the strip. Don't miss the slideshow.
