After almost two decades retired, Bill Watterson—the genius who crafted the universally beloved Calvin & Hobbes from 1985 to 1995—has published a new cartoon: A movie poster for Dave Kellett and Fred Schroeder's Stripped. (Wait, is that Calvin 20 years later?)
He appears in the movie too, in his first-ever recorded interview. Some of his words:
In the right hands, a comic strip attains a beauty and an elegance that really I would put against any other art.
I just realized that, rather than a generic cartoonist this could be Calvin himself, 20 years later. The blonde hair, the haircut, those eyes, the green socks... hmmmm.
