Few things have made me laugh and genuinely moved me the way Calvin and Hobbes has, both when I was a child and even now when I revisit the strips. As such I found these images, created by photographer Michael S. Den Beste, featuring Bill Watterson's beloved characters in real life settings to be at once hilarious and genuinely touching. You can check them all out, and choose your favorite, after the cut.

These are just some of my favorites. You can check out Den Beste's site, where he's already promised to create more.
