‘Calvin And Hobbes’ Re-Imagined As ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Are The Drawings We’re Looking For

Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes comic strip ran from 1985 to 1995, but it’s still inspiring people to have theme weddings, make fan tributes, and cosplay as the titular characters. Calvin and Hobbes also deftly lends itself to immediately-recognizable mashup art, like this alternate and adorable version of Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Now Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been given the mashup treatment.

Brian Kesinger is an artist who works for Marvel Comics and Disney Animation Studios, and he tells BuzzFeed he decided to draw this series when he watched Rey ride a makeshift sled down a sand dune on Jakku. “It struck me that she probably did that as a child, and that’s when the Calvin and Hobbes image flashed in my head.”

Kesinger credits Watterson as one of his biggest influences, and that inspiration is clear in how much the style of these drawings would fit right into a Spaceman Spiff comic — or a “Spaceman Finn” comic.

You can see more of Brian Kesinger’s cool art on his Instagram and his Etsy store, or continue scrolling to see the Calvin and Hobbes mashups. Let’s go exploring!
