TOON Bonus - Bloom'n Hobbes

Last edited Sun Aug 1, 2021, 08:05 AM - Edit history (1)

As of July 31, 2021, the crossover story arc is complete. Be sure to catch The Compleat Bloom'n Hobbes here.




Berkeley Breathed has been continuing Bloom County on Facebook, allowing a much slower pace than syndication, and has recently visited another old friend.

2. The best, probably the only argument, for tolerating FB.

Pretty sure Zuck would like to be Murdoch 2.0. God bless Berkeley Breathed!! Someone has to bring the whimsy.

14. Be still my heart!

I thought Bill Watterson stopped doing the strip years ago. In fact, I think I still have his "final" strip. I just moved into Vegas after having lived "rural" for the last 21 years and couldn't get the paper delivered. Have to check with the Review Journal. This alone is worth the cost of the subscription.

Thanks so much!!

16. He did stop it. These are reruns.

A lot of strips live on in rerun form. The Boondocks, For Better Or For Worse, even Doonesbury on weekdays (only the Sunday strips are new ones).

20. Rats.

Was hoping he found retirement boring and decided to bring the boys back from their adventures. But even the reruns are worth the price of a subscription!

10. Kicktoons. You are a saint for bringing Bloom Co. and Calvin & Hobbes to DU...

And Doonesbury, always Doonesbury.

ETA: I forgot to Bookmark that wonderful sequel where Calvin gives Hobbes to his little girl. Can you tell me the link?

11. The original links are gone. Jeez, I had to dig to find copies...

...although most of that was figuring out the right search terms to get the one(s, plural) you're thinking of. Quite a few other people have made attempts, including attempts to continue these ones.

They appeared in an online comic strip by Dan and Tom Heyerman called Pants are Overrated in 2011. Between May and October 2011, four of the Pants are Overrated strips were tributes to Calvin and Hobbes taking place about 26 years after the end of the original. Calvin is in his early 30s, he's married Suzy Derkins, and they have a little girl named Bacon who's about the same age they were in the original.

The original site no longer has the content, though a posting from February says it's under construction to get it back up and running.

In the meantime I've saved copies to the Imgur account I use for when I want to post an image that I can't directly link to.

So here they are, with a bonus treat: Guess who was nightmare fodder in 2011!:

23. ...and that she kind of got into the spirit of Calvin's unique take on things...

...instead of just being grossed out by it.

Thanks!

21. A couple of years now. It can be pretty sporadic...

...with months going by because he has another project or doesn't have a story line he likes. That's the benefit of doing it this way: he doesn't have to keep to a grinding syndicate schedule.
