The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

What are your opinions on the comic strip (some of you) know & love? Me..I'm obssessed! It's just flat-out funny (although some were quite touching).

I've never even seen one, let alone read one.  I don't think any comics are very funny actually.  I don't know why, but I just don't like them.  Maybe they're just not my kind of humor. :unsure:

i used to read them quite a bit though i don't think i have the comics any more. I always loved the one comics with the babysitter (can't seem to remember the name. i think its Roslyn or something that starts with an "r")

I can be called a Calvin and Hobbes fan. For all I know (and I hope to be wrong as this would mean that there is still something "out there") we have all the land before time books at home. Not only are many of his stories awfully funny, but there are also some which reveal him to be quite an intelligent philosopher. Some of the quotes from Calvin and Hobbes are truly memorable. There are even a few Calvin and Hobbes comics with stories which I experienced in exactly the same way even though I'm generally a different character than him ;)

There's a newspaper here that shows strips of Calvin & Hobbes, it's called P?blico. I used to go into news stands  and just turn the papers over just to read them :D

A friend of mine was in a band called Calvin's Skizofrenia, after the comic strip.
I'm hip, I'm cool. I'm a happening fool

Ahhh, you mean ol' Rosalyn? Yeah, she was funny.  It was hilarious to see Calvin torture her in his many ways.  :lol

Ahh, we can all relate to him in many ways. Currently, I relate to his reactions to going back to school soon.

I'm also a huge "Calvin and Hobbes" fan. I own all the books and just absolutely love the humor.

It's one of my favorite newspaper series, I saved up and got the complete Calvin & Hobbs collection.   Every strip is funny in my opinion.   :DD
