Calvin & Hobbes meet Herobear & The Kid

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.

I'm afraid this is the first time I've ever heard of Mike Kunkel.

I've heard of Mike Kunkel and Herobear and Kid...but I just haven't gotten around to reading it. Now I must.

A heroic team-up? This looks like a job for Stupendous Man!
