And even though its been ten years since the strip ended, many of its strips and situations still ring a familiar bell for us. Have many times did this strip pop into your head while youre writing a paper or doing some school project?
I mean, it seems like C&H were years ahead of their time, and its a damn shame Watterson stopped (in part because of him being against licensing C&H so much). At least they didnt end up like Garfield.
Ill expand on this later. Its a subject that I always enjoy going back to, but right now, Ive got some studying to do.
