Calvin Vs. Opus

So, as many of you know Berkley Breathed has relaunched Bloom County and it's very, very popular.

So popular, in fact, that after this strip ran "Suds Nuns" became the most popular English language search term on Google for nearly an entire day.

This makes me wonder - what if Waterson decided to come back as well?

Which of the two would be more popular/get the most hits?

My knee jerk reaction is Calvin - becasue Calvin was so hugely popular. But, on the other hand, what could Waterson do with Calvin that we haven't seen before that would make it interesting enough to read again on a daily basis? Maybe it would be popular for a couple days and fade out because we've already seen Calvin do everything Calvin can do.

Bloom County on the other hand has dozens of characters and they all react to real world events - which means there is an unlimited amount of ways that he could keep the strip interesting.

This makes me think it's a toss up that can only be settled by a Live Journal poll.
