25 Great Calvin and Hobbes Strips

I really miss Calvin and Hobbes. It was a brilliantly written strip that, to this day, still hasn't been matched. I own many of the collections of strips, and really enjoyed reading good commentary on some of my favorites at this site:

And it's really a shame that it's so difficult to quantify this strip's greatness. I can confidently state that Calvin & Hobbes outclasses the rest of the comic strip world more than anything else has ever outclassed the rest of its medium. Sans this strip, the industry is characterized by guys sitting on rocks making stupid puns, a Family Circus kid misunderstanding the meaning of a word, or an overweight father playing golf while telling jokes such as I LIKE GOLF and GOLF IS HARD. It's a medium that doesn't really deserve something as good as Calvin & Hobbes, but it got it anyway, and the newspaper-reading world was made a better place by it.
