""Calvin and Hobbes "both defined its time and yet floated above it. Read it today and it hasn't aged a day; read it today, and tell me you wouldn't drop everything to play Calvinball just once."
"Exploring Calvin and Hobbes" is the catalogue for an exhibit by the same name at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum at Ohio State University, which opened in March 2014.
