When the first solicits and in-store poster came out for Mike Kunkel's Herobear and Tyler , it looked TOTALLY like Calvin and Hobbes lite, differences in detail notwithstanding. It shows in my opinion the kind of thing (just the kind of thing, no more) that Bill Watterson could have easily achieved if he had taken Calvin and Hobbes from newspaper to indie comic. And beyond... ;)
As the story developed, and as one can read in the collected volume, it's a Christmas-themed adventure with a strong dose of magical realism, and a very Hobbesian polar bear. :)
