Ever wanted to follow in Calvin and Hobbes’ footsteps? Truman and Oscar, by far the most endearing characters from Frank Cho‘s Liberty Meadows, try just that in this strip that Cho created as an incentive for his Kickstarter project, “Drawing beautiful women”.
As much as I like Liberty Meadows, and admire Frank Cho as an artist in the tradition of Hal Foster and Burne Hogarth, I can’t help but see a, probably unintentional, self-deprecating “Don’t imitate the master” here. Which, in my opinion, makes this strip even greater, and probably one of the best laudatios to that late, great comic strip that was Calvin and Hobbes.
