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.

DC COMICS’ ‘MULTIVERSITY’ WILL FINALLY ARRIVE IN AUGUST FROM GRANT MORRISON AND AN ARMY OF ARTISTS
DC’s Multiversity is finally happening. Originally Announced in 2009 as an intended 2010 release, the first 40-page issue of the multiverse-spanning story by writer Grant Morrison and artists including Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, Ben Oliver, Frank Quitely, Cameron Stewart and more, now has an August 2014 release date. Comic Book Resources has a first-look at the first installment’s colored interiors with a two-page spread by Reis, Joe Prado and Nei Ruffino, along with an official statement from Morrison that names the threat that heroes including the newly previewed Superman Kalel from Earth-23 will be facing.
From Morrison’s official statement:
The Multiversity’ has been a labor of love almost eight years in the making, and brings together an unstoppable supergroup of artists — Reis, Sprouse, Oliver, Quitely, Stewart and more — with a cast of unforgettable characters from the 52 alternative Earths of the known DC Multiverse!
“Prepare to meet the Vampire Justice League of Earth-43, the Justice Riders of Earth-18, Superdemon, Doc Fate, the super-sons of Superman and Batman, the rampaging Retaliators of Earth-8, the Atomic Knights of Justice, Dino-Cop, Sister Miracle, Lady Quark, the legion of Sivanas, the Nazi New Reichsmen of Earth-10 and the LATEST, greatest superhero of Earth-Prime — YOU!
Comprising seven complete adventures — each set in a different parallel universe — a two part framing story, and comprehensive guidebook to the many worlds of the Multiverse, ‘The Multiversity’ is more than just a multi-part comic book series, it’s a cosmos-spanning, soul-shaking experience that puts YOU on the front line in the Battle For All Creation against the demonic destroyers known as the Gentry!
But beware! Power has a cost, and at the heart of this epic tale waits the cursed and malignant comic book called ‘Ultra Comics’…
How safe is YOUR head?
Join us, if you dare, for ‘The Multiversity!’” — Grant Morrison

Some people have crossed the line between originality and ridiculousness at coachella this year like selena gomez or the kardashian sisters who have just ripped off vanessa hudgens’ outfits from past years #copycats
People should stop praising Kylie for what she wore yesterday at Coachella. Vanessa LITERALLY wore that same outfit last year and rocked it better than she did. I’m not hating, just pointing out the obvious.
