Generally, we don't draw parallels between childhood comic strips and bloody, violent blockbuster films, but today is an exception.

As it turns out, Bill Waterson's Calvin and Hobbes happens to share a lot in common with David Fincher's Fight Club. Calvin and his imaginary friend Hobbes and their G.R.O.S.S. (Get Rid Of Slimy GirlS) club looks a lot like the Narrator and Tyler Durden's Fight Club. No? Don't believe me? See for yourself...
