Calvin and Hobbes

This is too good not to pass on…

Someone is translating (I think unofficially) Calvin and Hobbes into Brazilian Portuguese. Comics are a fantastic way to practice a language as the dialogue and pictures set the context and you have a “punch line” to try and work towards. So, I’ll be reading this frequently I guess.

    One thing I hate about Calvin and Hobbes in portuguese is the translation of the name Hobbes to Haroldo. It really ends with the John Calvin was Thomas Hobbes thing. And I have no idea if Hobbes is Haroldo translated, but Calvin is Calvino, so they should translate both or none.
