“Calvin and Jobs,” the Story of a Boy and His iCEO



In my childhood, I had two obsessions: Calvin and Hobbes and Apple. And someone has finally had the foresight to bring them together for Calvin and Jobs, which chronicles the adventures of a boy and his imaginary Apple CEO. It’s quite witty, very much in the tone of the real series. The cartooning isn’t so elegant as (almost certainly disapproving) Bill Watterson, but that’s pretty much a certainty. Still, my favorite remix comic since Garfield Minus Garfield, so well done, PinkFloyd99 of Flickr!  Click through the jump for four more adventures of Calvin and Jobs!

Update: This set of cartoons was written by Jacob Lambert and drawn by Gary Hallgren, and is from a two-page spread in the current issue of MAD Magazine.

    Although it hasn’t been cited anywhere, these images are from the July Mad magazine (i think) http://macenstein.com/default/

    I heard it was published in Mad Magazine actually, and that this is just a scan. According to bienbienbien.net (in french).

    Nice find. COM is fast becoming my favorite place for apple news. Do people feel an effort is made to cater to pre-imac users that have been around for a while. It seems that a lot of the sensationalist nonsense that the other rumor blogs engage in isn’t usually present here.

    I’d like to give credit to the writer and artist of that Calvin and Jobs satire. It was written by Jacob Lambert and drawn by Gary Hallgren. It’s from a two page spread in the current issue of MAD Magazine. It’s the Super Hero issue. Yep, the same issue that has the Sucker City Ad in it. The one that caused so much concern and then repentence from the folks at Circuit City.
