Classic Comic Come Home


I introduced my son to Calvin and Hobbes yesterday. I only have Revenge of the Babysat. The pages are a bit dogeared and worn but it's still a great read. He sat down and read quite a bit before bedtime. Then picked it right back up and finished it today.
I've often wondered if he "reads" comics by looking at the pictures. But he actually laughed out loud and even recapped a couple strips. It was the subtle "off screen" antics or results that really got his imagination going.
So it's nice to know that my kid enjoys some of the "classics" that I grew up on. And maybe I can get another book for Christmas too (for him, of course).
