    I recognize that my attachment to Bill Watterson's "Calvin and Hobbes" is one of the key reasons that I find this material so appealing, but I also have to acknowledge that Herobear & the Kid, and to a lesser extent Decoy, have successfully tapped into what ever magic that made Bill Watterson's strip one of my all time favorite comic creations. This issue is a celebration of childhood and while I know that my attempts to convey what I like about this book are going to sound overly sentimental, I simply can't help it. This book captures the sense of wonder that having a secret super-powered friend would be like. This is a title that understands a kid-friendly book can be intelligently written, and that a story can be simple in scope, but high on imagination. Hey, I warned you that my attempts to describe it would be maudlin (and yes, I've also got myself a thesaurus), but I can't help but embrace this series for the little treasure that it is.
