Snopes Verifies Viral Calvin and Hobbes Strip

On occasion an old comic strip, which can be linked to current world events, will go viral. Also on occasion the comic is fake. Real or Unreal? Such is the the question regarding a recent, low-res Calvin and Hobbes strip that has flooded the internet.

Snopes has confirmed that it is an actual Calvin and Hobbes comic.

However, in this case the panel seen above is neither altered nor out of character with the artist’s body of work — it is an accurate reproduction of a “Calvin and Hobbes” strip originally published on Feb. 18, 1991.

With the date supplied, a quick trip to GoComics backs up Snopes claim.
