And […]
Over at Incidental Comics, Grant Snider has this nice comic (as well as many, many more about different aspects of human nature and the human experience) about introverts.
I am a huge fan of “Calvin and Hobbes” and have mourned their absence of original strips since Bill Watterson retired the strip almost 20 years ago. But I wasn’t always such a huge fan.
