Tracer Bullet is a private eye. It says so on his door. But most people just call him Calvin. My first ever comic, I wanted to experiment with some of the dramatic lighting in one of the famous Calvin and Hobbes comic strips. I have replicated in Lego five of the comic strip frames about Calvin as his imaginary alter-ego, detective Tracer Bullet. If I get enough positive response, (and/or funding,) I may continue the strip, but all credit goes to Bill Watterson for his genius creation of Calvin and Hobbes! Please enjoy and comment!
About this creation
Calvin is in school one day, and is given a math quiz. Thoroughly stumped, Calvin imagines himself as his alter ego, Tracer Bullet, the trigger-happy private eye. Tracer Bullet embarks on a case to solve the math problem...
The actual comic can be found here.
As I keep saying, AMAZING PAUL! A superb moc! I am still trying to figure out on how you did the comic part! Keep up the great work! And I saw your group PAX with Max. Is it just for you and Max, or could other people join, like me? Just wondering.
Dang it! I was just building a moc of tracer bullets office and I was hopping no one had done it already. Oh well. Anyway very nice moc! I really like the shades on the windows and the black and white just adds to the mysterious effect! Great job! 5/5
Calvin and Hobbes is the best comic strip ever written...and know it is in LEGO! What a novel concept. 4/5 only because there's not alot of 'construction', so to speak. It is mostly lighting and Photoshop (I assume). But 4 stars for the minifig alone :)!
Wow. Great reproduction. I think for the first panel his face was completely covered with the shadow of the hat (I can't remember for certain) so it might have looked better to have the hat not completely attached to the head so it could be tilted.
