Here we hope to answer some questions you might have, and to provide some links to some other sources of desireable knowledge. If you come across a link to a viable source, please let us know because I don't think it's possible to fill your head with too much of the wisdom presented by Artist/Author/Creator/Genius Bill Waterson in this most deceptively simple format that was and still is Calvin and Hobbes.First of all:What does M.C.S. mean?why, Marching (and) Chowder Society, of course!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Here's some Cool links:(in no particular order, of course)http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/1449/(Character Profiles from Another Planethttp://home3.inet.tele.dk/stadil/calvin.htmCalvin and Hobbe's Magical World http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Estates/6261/cal_hob.html(has some cool motion in it!) http://www.kerzap.com/calvin/ (Calvin and Hobbes Unplugged) http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Hills/3498/(Rorster's strip of the day)one more link...provided by my co-conspirator in setting up this board, Station9:How to make a G.R.O.S.S. hat:http://www.nivmedia.com/calvin/gross.htmlI'm hoping to add more in the future...this of course will depend on you, the Friends of Calvin and Hobbes and Members of the MCS.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The "Calvin and Hobbes Font":Did you know there's a downloadable font that will let you read 'n write in "Calvinese"? (HUHHH???)yep, www.sharkshock.com in the fonts/ periodicals/comics dept. there resides a free downloadable zip file that you really NEED! ;0)Download then open into My Computer/Program Files/Windows/Fonts.It'll then allow you to read Calvinese on your browser and read and write it in your e-mail program.If you don't have a zipper/unzipper, you can download it there, free, too...(It's an evaluation version that seems to work forever ;0))Mac users...I dunno .....(sorry, I'm hoping you know how to do it...:0)The only gripe I have with the font is that it doesn't include parentheses or ampersands (of which I'm quite fond), but I reckon Calvin didn't use those thangs ennyway when he had Hobbes forge notes for him huh?So, it all comes down to: Whaddayou think?What does Calvin and Hobbes mean to you?Has this "simple comic strip" changed your way of thinking over the years, motivated, inspired you, or just given you a chuckle? Or do you not quite "get it"?I think this could be a really great place (board wise) it's you that'll make the differenceThanks!
