Nobody dislikes the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes. This is the premise of the documentary Looking for Mr. Watterson, and one I can personally attest to — I have never met a single person who didn't enjoy the wonderful art, the humor, the philosophy and/or the strip's creativity. I only know people who haven't read …
Calvin & Hobbes was great, is still great, and will always be great. And while it not as good as new strips, at least we now have Dear Mr. Watterson (and its new trailer), a documentary to remind us just how amazing, genius and wonderful this comic strip was. And why, 18 years later, we still miss it.
Bill Watterson's enchanting 10-year run on Calvin and Hobbes is the high-water mark of comics. And now the Kickstarter-based documentary Dear Mr. Watterson, which centers around the creation and influence of this masterpiece of childlike wonder, is coming to your television screen.
