    Calvin and Hobbes can be a great educational tool. I think the Farside has similar qualities, morals, and appeal. Although the tone and subject matter of each varies in many ways the vast appeal of the humor and wit as well as the short focused and smart style of each comic teaches in an amusing and easily understood manner. Kids can grasp the joke/lesson/sarcasm and adults can relate with their children. Using either strip in a school medium to illustrate a point can be quite rewarding for both teacher and pupil.
