VIDEO: First Trailer for Calvin & Hobbes Doc DEAR MR. WATTERSON
The first trailer for the upcoming Calvin & Hobbes Documentary, titled DEAR MR. WATTERSON, debuted this weekend - check it out below!
Calvin & Hobbes dominated the comics in thousands of newspapers for ten years, having a profound effect on millions of readers across the globe. When its creator, Bill Watterson, retired the strip on New Year's Eve in 1995, devoted readers everywhere felt the void left by the departure of Calvin, his tiger Hobbes, and Watterson's other cast of characters, and many fans would never find a satisfactory replacement.
It has now been 17 years since the end of Calvin & Hobbes. Bill Watterson has kept an extremely low profile during this time, living a very private life in Ohio. Despite his quiet lifestyle, Mr. Watterson is remembered and appreciated daily by fans who still enjoy his amazing collection of work. Newspaper readership and book sales can be tracked and recorded, but the human impact he has had and the value and significance of his art are perhaps impossible to measure.
