Today in history

It's Mickey Mouse's birthday! Walt Disney released Steamboat Willie today in 1928. The simple cartoon became the benchmark for animation of the time, and sparked the success of the Disney company.

The first-ever comic strip of Calvin and Hobbes was published today in 1985. Based on a boy and his tiger, it was unique in that it transcended jokes and invited the reader to ponder deeper questions about the world.
