We'll probably see Tracer soon

@  Shadow : (06 September 2019 - 10:48 PM)

I'd rather see Mai in Smash

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 09:05 AM)

I'm more surprised about the Fatal Fury character.

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

Really wasn't keen on the idea of Sans being playable, but I guess he's in the same vein as Ness/Lucas

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

I think it works.

@  GamemasterAn... : (05 September 2019 - 06:53 AM)

So...Sans is a Mii Gunner costume for Smash. Comments?

@  Wulfsbane : (31 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Alright, AEW's All Out was pretty freaking good.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 August 2019 - 06:22 AM)

The Knux will Layeth the Smacketh Down all over your Candy Ass!

@  GamemasterAn... : (20 August 2019 - 05:59 AM)

"Finally, the Knux...HAS COME BACK...to Angel Island!"

@  Wulfsbane : (19 August 2019 - 07:26 PM)

Strangely I can see it.

@  Shadow : (18 August 2019 - 10:39 PM)

Imagine Dwayne Johnson voicing Knuckles...

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 02:31 PM)

The Rock has come back? XP

@  chief : (17 August 2019 - 02:26 PM)

http://www.sonicsatam.com/sea3on/ finally...

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 07:40 AM)

Good to hear.

@  chief : (13 August 2019 - 07:27 PM)

We are in talk with background artists actually...

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

some traditional cel painted backgrounds would be lovely.

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

Is their any plans on what might be added if the budget reaches a certain quota?

@  wildfire : (13 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

Just saw the preview for Sea3son animated. It looks awesome! Voices are great. I only wish I had money to support.

@  wildfire : (12 August 2019 - 11:30 PM)

Glad to see this place is still bustling. I went through my old comics last night, made me think of you all. I miss this place sometimes.

I suppose this is the comic strip equivalent of when a post-retirement Johnny Carson briefly appeared on David Letterman. Read here and the following two strips. Then read Stephan Pastis's blog entry about it.

It's all kinda surreal. I wouldn't expect Pearls of all strips to be Bill's cup of tea (it can be pretty funny, but it's definitely lacking in the art department). But I guess it happened regardless. Who'da thunk it?

Why not Calvin & Hobbes

Well, there's no way Watterson would ever do a Calvin & Hobbes crossover, for the same reason he doesn't allow merchandise. And it wouldn't have been practical to bring back the whole series for just three strips. :P

THIS.

KICKS.

ASS.

Pearls is my favorite comic strip other than Bloom County, and Calvin and Hobbes is easily in my top 5.
I didn't even recognize the art at first, but the news was mind-blowing.

I didn't even realize it was him until now....it's amazing to see that he still has what it takes to be a cartoonist

That explains the last strip that came out today.  It was practically a shout out to the final C&S strip!

I'd never heard of, much less read, Pearls Before Swine before looking at this, but that was pretty interesting. Much as I love Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbes remains far and away my favorite comic strip. It's one of those wonderful works that is instantly immensely appealing as a child, yet only gets better as one ages.

That was hilarious! Especially the one with the Martian invasion.

Talk about nostalgic...

This is cool news. It would've been cool to see Calvin and Hobbes return, even if Calvin became an eccentric father while Hobbes has his own cubs...as awkward as that sounds. But still, it is some pretty interesting news! Quite awesome!!
