Video Attempts To Explain Why ‘Calvin And Hobbes’ Is So Damn Good

YouTuber “kaptainkristian” has created a six minute video extolling the virtues of the beloved Calvin and Hobbes comic strip along with the integrity and vision of its creator, Bill Watterson.

The video takes a look at the strip’s longevity and the state of art itself, explaining that there’s no “low” or “high” art and that works either speak to people or don’t. There’s also an examination of commercialism in the art/comics world that leads to the title of the video itself, Art Before Commerce.

That being said, there’s a heavy dose of opinion in the production, as well as some unabashed dumping on other comics – especially Garfield.
