Calvin and Hobbes Resurrected

Okay, let’s get this straight. Calvin and Hobbes was a strip by Bill Watterson that ended in 1995. Bloom County is a comic by Berkeley Breathed that ended in 1989. However, Breathed resurrected Bloom County (featuring Opus the penguin) last year on his Facebook page, which is the only place the new version is published. Early this morning, Breathed announced that Watterson was handing over the Calvin and Hobbes franchise to him. Then this strip appeared. Well, it is April Fools Day, and we don’t yet know whether Watterson was involved in the prank. (via Fark)
