New print fully available again!

Welcome, you've come to the place where Calvin and Hobbes® once were honored with a great tribute and fan-site, "Calvin and Hobbes at Martijn's". Unfortunately the copyright owners didn't agree with that and made me shutdown the entire site. The biggest success of the site was the Calvin and Hobbes Strip Search, which received thousands of visitors every single day.

I want to thank for all your visits and nice comments. I've received hundreds of emails because of this shutdown; thanks for all the nice comments! It would take way too much time to reply to all of them, so don't think I don't read them. I've read every single one of them and appreciate your comments.

If you want, you can send me an email as well.


For completeness, here's a list of all available Calvin and Hobbes® books, with direct links to buy them.

Macintosh downloads

Or configure your browser so that it recognizes binhex archives. You can do this in the Preferences:Helper Applications. Again read the manual.

Again, this are binhexed stuffed archives for the APPLE MACINTOSH ONLY. If you have no idea what I'm talking about you'd better NOT download.

Bill Watterson's Writing True Type Font

A Calvin and Hobbes fan has sent me a True Type Font (TTF) he created. It's the same lettering as Bill Watterson's used for the text in the Calvin and Hobbes comics. I'm sure this will come in very handy for the people on the forum involved in the Calvin and Hobbes 2 animation project! Wink

Below is a sample of this font. You may distribute this font as you wish, but you must include a link to the main page of this site, http://www.reemst.com/calvin_and_hobbes/ if you are putting it up for download. Click the image to download the font.

Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons

Eric Hoang has sent in a game he made. His comments:

Calvin and Hobbes: Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons is my fourth Game Maker game (actually...it's only my second FINISHED game, but...). It's a overhead shooter based around the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson. I finished it in under a week (everything; conceptual planning on paper, custom sprites, finding/selecting midis, wavs, and Bill Watterson art, coding, beta testing, uploading the final version to the internet) over my Winter break in 2003. I'm pretty proud of this game cause I think it's a lot more polished and fun than my last game, Chrono Trigger Arcade. Also, I did the coding for this one entirely by myself, without anyone else's help (although I did use two other people's scripts to do the pause and the energy bars).
Features include:
* Custom graphics (with the exception of Bill Watterson art)
* 4 different weapons + 2 environment based weapons
* High Scores Tracking
