If your only exposure to Calvin and Hobbes has come from seeing Calvin pissing on a Ford or Chevy logo in the back window of a pickup truck, then WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

Calvin and Hobbes ran in newspapers from 1985 until December 1995, and is arguably the greatest comic strip of all time. I can say that because I will argue that point until I die.

Cartoonist Bill Watterson had this wonderful way of depicting Calvin’s imagined worlds, and transitioning in and out of reality. Much like The Simpsons, Watterson’s work was able to connect with both younger and older audiences. Having read most of Calvin and Hobbes as a kid, I’ve enjoyed re-reading them all as an adult. The entire series has been archived at GoComics.com.

Bill Watterson has been notoriously reclusive, and extremely protective of the original source material. Thats what makes the interview he did withso interesting. You can read it here:
