Calvin and Hobbes on Hoth

I'm not sure what to expect from the upcoming Han Solo film.  The studio changed directors halfway through and as a result there have been some major changes, including at least one character being completely written out.  Still, the new director is Ron Howard, who is clearly very talented - plus there was similar behind the scenes turmoil with Rogue One, and I loved how that film turned out.  I have fingers crossed that they can pull this one off as well.

For me, Rogue One managed to recapture the magic of the original Star Wars. I liked that one near Jedi character.

It's been a long time, but I do remember enjoying Han Solo at Star's End. There was another novel that I enjoyed, too.

I think the original Star Wars may have been the last movie that managed to make it into theaters without a whole lot of advance hoopla - unlike any movie today... ;)

Maybe a team-up(?) of Thorax (9 Chickweed Lane, Pibgorn) and Herbie popnecker could be shown; I think they're similar.

I mean Herbie Popnecker!

I could see Herbie and Bouncing boy.

Love this cover! Maybe you could do a sequel with Calvin's would-be girlfriend in the same setting and call it..."Heck Hoth No Fury Like A Woman Scorned."

I have a few ideas for future issues:

The cast of Red vs. Blue appears in the universe of Team Fortress 2 in "Red vs. B.L.U."

Rorschach and the Punisher join the Red Lantern Corps.

Papyrus (from Undertale) winds up in Eternia, and everyone there mistakes him for Skeletor. Hilarity Ensues.

Love these C&H covers :D Would love to see them team up with Franklin Richards and HERBIE (I think Chris Eliopoulos' Son of a Genius series was a fun book)
Or maybe Stupendous Man in the Marvel Universe (Well, Chris Giarusso's Mini-Marvel Universe at least!)

I have avoided the obvious Calvin/Franklin Richards & HERBIE pairing because frankly I always found the Eliopoulos feature to be kind of a rip off of Watterson's work.
