I became a fan of Mike Kunkel from his excellent if all too brief run on Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam! It was an amazing all-ages title and frankly one of my favorite depictions of the Shazam Family. His Herobear and The Kid looks to be a perfect title for folks missing Calvin and Hobbes. It too features a boy and his stuffed animal that he shares adventures with. Kunkel's artwork evokes Watterson's style as well - without aping it as some other artists do.
