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.

March 4th, 2004Today's updated is a tribute by Lenny Peterson. Check it out in the Art and tributes section. Thanks to Costas for letting me know.
February 29th, 2004Today a few things were added in Stuff from fans. There's a nice recipe to create your own Hobbes' Tiger Tail Cookies. Also, not less than nine new tattoo's were added. A new tribute was added to the Art and tributes. I also updated the Foreign section and completed the French booklist.
January 6th, 2004A couple of additions were done today. First, the Calvin and Hobbes Strip Search now has all strips available, up until the final one on December 31, 1995. There were also some wrong Sunday strips; they have been fixed now. All strips published can now be found using C.H.E.S.S.

Another game was added to the goodies section, sent in by Eric Hoang.

Two photo's of a painting by a German Calvin and Hobbes fan were added.
January 1st, 2004The best wishes for all visitors! I hope you all have a great 2004. Today The Calvin Awards nominations for 1985 are opened. You can participate too, in electing the favorite Calvin and Hobbes strips ever! Just sign up at the forum, and you can join our community.
December 4th, 2003I just added a few pictures with the postcards which makes it easy for you to send nice holiday greetings.

And today a new subforum The Calvin Awards was opened. Each month in 2004 there will be an election for the best Calvin and Hobbes of a particular year. When all years have been done, there will be a final election for the best Calvin and Hobbes strip ever! You can participate too when you sign up (for free of course!) at the forum.
November 27th, 2003On November 26th, the following article ran in Cleveland Scene. It contains items on illegal merchandise, Bill's whereabouts, and much more. Absolutely worth reading!
November 23rd, 2003I've got a huge amount of tribute strips waiting in my mailbox to be posted on the site. Today the first, and most recent one is available. Check out The Big Picture featuring Hobbes in both his appearances. Thanks to Craig Guild for pointing this one out to me!
November 21st, 2003Matthew from England has sent in a picture of the Calvin and Hobbes mural in his house. It's uploaded in the Stuff from fans section.
October 24th, 2003I just increased the maximum amount of strips that you can view each day to 25. This will probably be enough to let you find the strips you've been looking for. Smile
October 21st, 2003A while ago I received a couple of pictures from a few Calvin and Hobbes fans. They have a really cool item in their possession. It's a very well done figurine of Calvin and Hobbes walking through the snow with their toboggan. Check them out now in Stuff from fans section.
October 8th, 2003I've just extended C.H.E.S.S., the Calvin and Hobbes Extensive Strip Search. You can now select a specific date you want to view. Of course this also displays the description and includes the full references to the books and pages it was printed.
October 7th, 2003Adrian Ramos, aka Adis, has sent me an piece of work he has drawn. It's a terrific picture of Calvin and Hobbes, in his very own style. It's really great, so check it out now!
October 5th, 2003Unfortunately the mailing list for this site was not configured correctly, which allowed all members to post to the list. This resulted in two messages being sent out to all members. The first one was not a virus, it was just an image in case you were worried about the attachment. Fortunately I discovered this problem within about half an hour and blocked it completely to prevent people to abuse the list for spam. Apparently a few people thought they could take advantage of this, but they were too late Wink. Anyway, I've changed the setup now, and in the future you will only receive messages sent out by me. Of course this won't be more often than once every two months. Sorry for the unnecessary emails!

October 1st, 2003I've just uploaded 36 AIM Buddy Icons for you, and setup things so they're ready for use immediately. Just click one of the image you like and it will be set as your icon immediately. Check them out now!
September 21st, 2003The time since the last update was longer than I expected, but there's a good reason for it! I'm very excited to announce the Calvin and Hobbes Extensive Strip Search! You remember this specific Calvin and Hobbes strip, but haven't been able to find it in the books, or you want to know the exact date a strip was published? You can find it very easy, and even read it on this site. It contains all Calvin and Hobbes strips ever published in the papers. Try it out now!
August 23rd, 2003Although Bill Watterson doesn't want his characters to be given voices by other people, I thought this animation (scroll to the bottom of the page) was too nice to not place it. It was created by Nima Anvar and is in 3D. It requires Windows Media Player.
August 17th, 2003Improved several technical things with the site. Loading times should be faster now, and I also improved the popups that show the images and preferences. They look better now, and behave much better when dragging them around.

May 13th, 2003Installed a new poll (on the right side of this page) and added four new pictures for the postcards.
