One of the best parts of being a parent is reliving little snippets of your childhood through your kids. I was a huge Calvin and Hobbes fan growing up and have recently rediscovered the comic strip thanks to my daughter, who thinks it is as hilarious and touching and amazing as I did when I was young.
If you are serious fan of Bill Watterson's classic comic strip, then you need to be made aware of the existence of the Calvin and Hobbes search engine created by Michael Yingling. It lets you search by keyword, so you can find the strips, for example, that have Calvin and Hobbes waking up to a snow day, battling Calvin's nemesis Susie, or seeing the world via Calvin's alter ego Stupendous Man. You must use an exact phrase when searching by keyword, and you can also search by date.
The search results are returned quickly and display how many comics contain your search term. Each result provides the script and description of the comic strip, along with the books in which it has appeared. The results do not include the comics themselves, but each contains a link to GoComics.com, where you can read the full comic strip.
