What if Calvin was dressed as a wizard with a long white beard, and Hobbes was a dragon?

You would get the central characters of Gunchello.

Jerry Seltzer has written of his creative process HERE, and as one can see from the above the wizard is indeed Calvinesque although the rest of the beautifully drawn world was wonderful and entirely his own. The strip has come and gone, long since, and although at one time there were some coloured strips and quite a few black and whites around, at this point it has definitely slipped into (hopefully temporary) real obscurity. More's the shame, it looked beautiful. And a Hobbesian dragon was awesome. :)
