Calvin & Hobbes Snowmen

I love Calvin & Hobbes
Calvin is supreme ruler in the universe of twisted imaginations and his delightfully macabre snowmen are perfect for this season of Creepmas. 
I had thought about making some "Snowman House of Horror" cupcakes.  Why, I don't know. I'm not very good at food decorating. And it's not a medium I enjoy, so I don't have any intentions of ever getting good at it.  But I get these ideas and they won't go away until I follow through.  Luckily while searching for images of Calvin's creations I found the following awesome confections.  They are totally almost exactly what I was going to do except for they are 1,002% better then what I would have actually done. So now I don't actually have to make them.   
This fabulous cupcake is from

This link at wikia gives a chronological breakdown to the snowmen comics.
There is a separate link that tackles the Snow Goons.     
Here are Snow Goons Lego style by Tyler Sky. 

This is a great collection of pictures of real snowmen at I like how they've grouped the comic strip based ones together with the inspiring comic.  I also really like that you can view them all just by scrolling down and not having to click through multiple frames for each picture. Seriously, I can't say that enough how wonderful it is to just look through a list of items in one shot.  Yeah I know, first world issues, still grateful.
