Everyone who has ever spent hours looking for that one favoriteĀ Calvin & Hobbes strip with Spaceman Spiff orĀ Susieā€™s comatose rabbit Mr. Bun, rejoice: Software engineer Michael ā€œBingā€ Yingling has created a search engine for every old Calvin And Hobbes. Yingling discovered complete scripts online for each strip, and built an engine that works with the GoComics archive of Calvin And Hobbes.

For now, comics can only be searched by exact phrase and date and itā€™s a little wonky, so sometimes searches for exact strips might not work out exactly. But isnā€™t delightful randomnessā€”along with too-real philosophical musings and chaotic games of Calvinballā€”part of what makes Calvin And Hobbes so great? [via Robot 6]
