These Images of Calvin & Hobbes in Real Life Settings are Equal Parts Hilarious and Beautiful

Few things have made me laugh and genuinely moved me the way Calvin and Hobbes has, both when I was a child and even now when I revisit the strips. As such I found these images, created by photographer Michael S. Den Beste, featuring Bill Watterson’s beloved characters in real life settings to be at once hilarious and genuinely touching.
