I’ve been reading comic books since I first learned to read. My uncle used to buy either local or foreign comic books for us when we were kids. Time went and most of them have rotten, but their influence remained. I went beyond the abakada and became a superhero of my own story because of those comic books. I still keep a few collections and read them, but mostly online. One of my favorites is Calvin and Hobbes. I love little rambunctious Calvin and his innocent playful stuffed tiger Hobbes. I value the socio-political content and life philosophies shared by Bill Watterson in his creation, but I cherish Calvin and Hobbes more because it showed the essence of friendship and joys of childhood. It was sad when the comic ended, but we know Calvin and Hobbes are still out there continuing their adventures.
