Gabriel de Laubier brings new life to a beloved 25-year-old scene

A French artist named Gabriel de Laubier attempted the difficult task of converting a 25-year-old Calvin and Hobbes comic strip into three dimensions, and the results are awe inspiring.

DC-born cartoonist Bill Watterson created Calvin and Hobbes in 1985 and the strip, which features a boy and his stuffed tiger, became a beloved institution in the funny pages during its syndicated run through 1995.

De Laubier chose to update Watterson's memorable 1991 strip, “The Big Bang,” which finds the precocious duo humorously pondering the name coined by scientists to describe the creation of the universe. Calvin suggests that a more appropriate name would be “The Horrendous Space Kablooie.”
