Great News

Some of you may know of my love for Calvin and Hobbes. Some may not, but you do now. I think Calvin and Hobbes is one of the greatest sources of reading material. It is funny, unexpectedly deep, and simply hard to put down.

Joel Allen Schroeder is the director of a new documentary called Dear Mr. Watterson. Subtitled A Thank You to the Creator of Calvin and Hobbes, the film aims to "look to the readers and fans to tell the story of the strip and its creator. ... The undying appreciation and love of Calvin and Hobbes and the man behind it will be evident in the anecdotes, stories, and memories shared by readers of the strip and friends and colleagues of Mr. Watterson."

Here is a link to the website.

There is also a book coming out this fall entitled Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip. I will be pre-ordering that one!
