Calvin Without Hobbes

Much along the same lines as Garfield Minus Garfield, Jeff Ocean has posted a series of Calvin & Hobbes strips in which he removed the Hobbes character, or replaced it with its stuffed toy animal counterpart.  While the result of that first endeavour is a funny and at times surprising endeavour, Calvin Minus Hobbes is just depressing, much like the Calvin on Retalin strip was.

Jeff concludes : “I won’t be posting any more of these. They’re too sad.”  And he’s quite right.

    LOL. Makes it seem very creepy/crazy.

    Garfield without Garfield is funnier though, IMO.
