    I must confess I was expecting a closure along “Let’s go exploring!” a la Watterson. But it’s okay. My apologies for that. :D

    I will definitely miss M&C on my daily reading list. But now we’ll just have to wait for the great books to come out. Best of luck Steve!

  10. Grace

    Keep us updated and best of luck Stephen.

    Awesome ending!!!!

  11. paige

    It seems kinda unspectacular, but this was probably the best possible way to end it.

  12. Nicole

    So sweet. I love it. I sure will miss daily dose of Mal and Chad!

  13. Soul Eater

    Thank you for writing such a wonderful comic, I enjoyed reading it. I hope I’ll be able to afford the books.

  14. taz

    Good Job! Keep on trucking! Don’t lose sight of your goals!

  15. Miriam

    Thanks! This is an example of why the comic resonates with so many people–the simple depth of their friendship. It is sweet…but SO sad to know it’s the end. Looking forward to buying the books…thanks again!

  16. Starnick

    Aww, and it ends on the day I got a (different) cake with candles too :/

  17. Co0kieL0rd

    “It’s a magical world, Hobbes ol’ buddy…”
    Absoloutely loved it. You’re the greatest. I’m just sad I don’t have any money.

    You know, maybe you should take off the “updates M-F” text on the sidebar

  26. Milo Windby

    Nyah ~ I can’t believe its done now q_q

    Hope everything works out though ^^

  27. The Laughing Eye

    Dear lord, that was wonderful! A webcomic linked you and I poked it to see what the talk was all about. Well worth a read! I just finished reading it all and was like reading a Calvin and Hobbes book with a whole new aspect on everything! It brings sadness to me to know that it is all over… :’ (
    All this to say you will be missed old Chap!

  28. Jada

    Can’t wait to see the book! I really enjoyed the web comic run.

  29. Amanda

    :( So sad
    But it was a great ending!

  30. Mike Terry

    Congrats to you Stephen!

  31. Zalgryth

    That was great but much too short! :(

  32. Ben

    I have been checking back for weeks waiting for a new one, and I JUST noticed that this is the end! I love your work – you have a beautiful illustration style, such precise and delicate brush work. You should know that your work is inspiring to an illustrator just getting started in the biz. Thanks for the great, free reading. Keep up the amazingness.

    Why do the good web comics always have to end?!

  47. Mokkitt

    I must now leave in search of other amazing web comics.
