In yesterday's post about cartoonist Bill Watterson, commenter Steve said:
Mr. Watterson is still writing and Calvin is now grown up.
Check out the comic "Frazz" and tell me that this is not Watterson writing about Calvin as an adult:
Here is the theory about Calvin being Frazz:
Intrigued, I followed the links he provided. I have to agree with him that Frazz is very like Calvin and Hobbes in drawing style, sense of humor, and subject matter (i.e. kids at school). However, further investigation suggests that its author, Jeff Mallett, isn't Bill Watterson working under a pseudonym. The comments on a thread referenced by Mr. Meyer militate against it, and a Wikipedia article on the cartoon strip notes the similarity to Calvin and Hobbes, but denies any link.
Nevertheless, Frazz is a lot of fun. Here's today's cartoon, just to show you what it's like.
I plan to read Frazz regularly for a few weeks and see whether it grows on me. If it does, I'll add it to my list of recommended online cartoons. Thanks for the link, Steve.
