7. The best.

So far above the rest of the field that it's almost unbelievable.

14. Better than Peanuts, Krazy Kat, or Pogo? mmmmmmmmm NO.

Not even Watterson himself would disagree.

16. I might give in on Krazy Kat.

I'll still rank Calvin and Hobbes above the other two.

20. Every bit their equal.

And if Bill disagreed with that parity, I'd just have to tell him he's wrong.

2. I miss Calvin as well. The comic pages mostly suck these days.

I've been reading my old Calvin & Hobbes and Bloom County collections recently. And Far Side.

Sigh.

8. That was the true "Golden Age of Comics". . .

Calvin & Hobbes.
The Far Side.
Bloom County.
Doonesbury.

Only Doonesbury remains. He still rises to heights extraordinaire, but not as often as he used. And the other three -- Watterson, Larson, Breathed -- they're still around as well, just not working in the medium they so richly mastered.

I often wonder: What do they do, when the muse comes unbidden in the dead of night? Does Larson just sputter and guffaw to himself, then go on about his day? Or does he create the occasional masterpieces and share them only with select friends?

Hard to believe they all three left at the top of their game and haven't looked back. Easy to understand, however. I'm sure part of their reasoning was a desire to avoid becoming caricatures of themselves. Yeah, easy to understand. But damn, doesn't stop me from continuing to wish they'd reconsider.
