Calvin & Hobbes Cookies Part 5 - Those Poor Snowmen!

This is part 5 in my series of the recreation of various Calvin & Hobbes comics in cookie form.
In this comic we see terrible things happening to several snowmen - hanging, shot with a cannon and being buried alive. This is the original comic here. Usually I have been doing just the last frame of the comic, or part of the last frame. This time I recreated three frames of the comic.

Here is the work in progress. Cookies are cutout, baked, and outlined in black frosting:

And since this involved Calvin in the third frame, I got to use some additional colors this time. (This particular comic is black and white, but I looked at some full-color comics with Calvin and chose my colors based on what he was wearing there).

Here’s the first frame. That canon shot a canon ball straight through him!

And the second frame:

And the last. Unfortunately, Calvin didn’t come out great. His nose is way way way too big.

Oh those poor snowmen!

It was nice to get to use a little more color in this one. Once I'm done with the snowmen series I think I'll move on to something a little more colorful. Calvin, Hobbes, springtime, outdoors, who knows? Time to peruse through my Calvin and Hobbes books for ideas. But until I get to that point, there are several more Snowmen scenes to come. Stay tuned!
