Weirdos From Another Planet!

Long gone from the comic page, Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes still manages to inspire other artists. At the Crazy For Cult show earlier this year, pop artist Sean Clarity submitted Jack's Imaginary Friend as a visual representation of Galvin P. Chow's theory that Fight Club is Calvin and Hobbes, but grown up:
"Just as Calvin has an imaginary jungle-animal friend named Hobbes, whom everyone else believes to be nothing but a stuffed toy, "Jack" in Fight Club has an imaginary cool-guy friend named Tyler, whom no one but Jack can see."
I went back and found all of that after seeing the results of Comics Alliance's call out to comic book artists to reinterpret the iconic strip. (Link via Neatorama)
