Comic strip showdown: Calvin and Hobbes or The Far Side?
Forever! Calvin & Hobbes! The best!
wow didn't think it would be this split. Calvin and Hobbes, hands down
I agree with most of you... This was the most difficult choice ever! Have books by both, can recite my favorites of both, have both on my bulletin board, both in clippings my Dad gave me. It's a tie.
If you've never read Calvin & Hobbes, please do yourself a favor and go read some today.
Which one could I easier live without? C&H by a tiger whisker...therefore Far Side wins.
very hard to choose here. I chose fair side but I love C& V
both. I refuse to decide and no one can make me
I had to flip a coin for this poll. C&H because it landed heads.
These are literally my two favorites lol. But I chose the far side just bc it's so weird, which I love. I'm guilty of having several books full of those comics!
This really shouldn't even be a competition. Calvin & Hobbes is a legend.
And so is the Far Side hahaha I just will forever have a special connection with Calvin & Hobbes.
Grew up on C&H. How can you beat a T-rex in a fighter plane?
I actually have that frame in my folder of rotating wallpapers.
Two different generations. Check out the 40+ age group
I can't decide!
C&H all the way!
I hope this works but here is a link to a blog post I read today. stephanpastis.wordpress.com/2014/06/07/ever-wished-that-calvin-and-hobbes-creator-bill-watterson-would-return-to-the-comics-page-well-he-just-did/
Ooh that's a tough one!
The Far Side by far!!!
Difficult choice! :))
I think this has been one of the hardest polls for me. I went with The Far Side since it was the first one I used to read.
Tough choice, they were both great.
I like Calvin and Hobbes.
This poll has split my soul in two pieces and asked me to choose one of them. One cannot simply have Calvin and Hobbes OR The Far Side. Both comics work hand-in-hand to build ones childhood and well being. How dare you ask me to choose between them!
My sentiments exactly!
Tough call. Really tough -- but in the end, Calvin's dad wins out. I want to be like him when I grow up.
Tough poll, the second and third best comic strips of all time.
What is your first?
This may have been the most difficult decision of my life.
I flipped my SOH nickel to vote; it's an impossible choice. But what a wonderful article!
I love Calvin!
Love them both as much as my treasured original Pogo collection.
I miss the Farside
Gary "Farside" Larson was the greatest cartoonist in American history, even greater than Charles Addams!
Gary - PLEASE come out if retirement!
My two favorite strips! Both delve into existentialism and the idiocy of modern life, and I respect both cartoonists for quitting before they ran out of good material.
These results sicken me.
I think I mostly liked the Far Side better, especially the daily calendar, but I bet my mom has clipped and sent me more of C&H.
Very close. I have to say Calvin though although Far Side is probably more quotable. Both are wise, intelligent with accurate assessments of the human comedy.
C&H by far. The far side had really good strips, but some weren't so hot. C&H was gold.
That was beautiful. Made even better as I also like Pearls. Made my day to read that.
I'm bi I'll go ether way
This is like asking which foot I like better!
I know, right? I'll probably change my answer a dozen times today. Right now Hobbs is ahead because of the article.
Those are my two favorite comic strips of all time. I chose Calvin and Hobbes.
I totally dig The Far Side! Yep, my choice, here! :)
The far side is just weird...
Wonderfully and delightfully weird <3
I love the far side, but C&H is the all-time best.
I don't even find Calvin and Hobbs funny. The Far Side on the other hand is my favorite of all time.
That's a tough one... My two favs of all time!
Who expects a choice between the best two comics there is. - in my opinion (just past peanuts)
I grew up on FS and CH, still have all the collections of both, passed em on to my oldest boy and love to watch him enjoy them.....
Very find memories attached to these two comics..
C&h easy pick
I can't pick!
ahh, but you did
I closed my eyes and picked one. I'll never tell which.
I flip an actual coin for polls like this. It's my Official SOH Nickel, & lives on the table next to my iPad.
I've already changed my vote 10 times.
Hardest. Poll. Ever.
Why do you make me choose??? I want both back.
