War of the Worlds: Frank Masi

It is a true testament to the enduring hold the strip has on our imaginations that this miniature re-creation of Calvin’s deliciously macabre snowmen still feels as funny and endearing now as Watterson’s strips of them did back in the ’80s and ’90s. Check it out below, and then tell me, PopWatchers, what are your favorite Calvin and Hobbes moments?
