The debate is still open but we think that considering the life of Hobbes as a product of Calvin’s imagination is a crude and too Cartesian reading of Watterson’s work, who himself said he did not wanted to clear the question of Hobbes’ ontological statue in .Then we can consider that Hobbes, the so-called non-human, is through the process of identification reintegrated in the “we” community constituted by Calvin, Hobbes and the reader.It is eventually important to notice the role played by contradictions and irony, which are important parts of the comics world.

On the contrary Calvin is the child of the capitalism – which seems coherent with his name according to Weber’s thesis linking Protestantism and capitalism[3].He is prisoner of the Kantian ontology tracing a clear distinction between the human (the fundating power) and the other (the nature, embodied by the wild tiger). He is often allying with Hobbes on the side of the “earthlings”, as opposed to the “humans”[5] as defined by the evocated ontologies, as one can see for example in this strip.At the end of the strip, the behaviour and the words of Calvin are both coherent and easy to interpret: He decides to be no more a human (as he was defined before) but to stand on the side of the ‘earthlings’. It can really be considered as a ‘mainstream’ comics: according to Wikipedia, the two main characters are important ‘icons of the popular culture’.However, Bill Watterson is an original, solitary artist, who always refused the integration in the mainstream comics commercialization system.
