'Calvin and Hobbes' creator Bill Watterson's secret return to comics

Quote:On Dec. 31, 1995, Calvin and Hobbes rode off on a sled. Nearly 19 years later, creator Bill Watterson has brought his work back to the funny pages. The best part? Millions of readers had no idea.

This week, Watterson was a secret guest artist on the comic strip Pearls Before Swine, written and illustrated by Stephan Pastis. In the series, Pastis, as a character in his own strip, meets a second-grader named Libby, who thinks Pastis draws like crap and offers to take over Pearls for a while.

Then, like one of Calvin’s fantasies, a random martian robot attack interrupts the narrative. Alligators eat the cartoonist. Libby gets bored and leaves. “There’s a magical world out there,” she says.

Fans, of course, started to get suspicious. “There are definitely some Wattersonian touches … and the complaint about the lack of space in modern comic strips that serves as the punchline sure does sound like Watterson,” Paul Constant analyzed on the Stranger Friday.

That “magical world” line is how Calvin signed off, too. Libby’s complaint about needing more space to work within reflects Watterson’s push to have his series printed in full size on Sundays. And Libby, or Lib, is “Bill” backward.

Watterson made Pastis promise not to reveal anything until the project was over. But on Monday, the younger cartoonist couldn’t help but tease something incredible. On Saturday morning, he finally revealed all on his blog.

Pastis reveals how the project came together:

I … thanked [Watterson] for all his great work and the influence he’d had on me. And never expected to get a reply.

And what do you know, he wrote back.

Let me tell you. Just getting an email from Bill Watterson is one of the most mind-blowing, surreal experiences I have ever had. Bill Watterson really exists? And he sends email? And he’s communicating with me?

But he was. And he had a great sense of humor about the strip I had done, and was very funny, and oh yeah….

…He had a comic strip idea he wanted to run by me.

Now if you had asked me the odds of Bill Watterson ever saying that line to me, I’d say it had about the same likelihood as Jimi Hendrix telling me he had a new guitar riff. And yes, I’m aware Hendrix is dead.

So I wrote back to Bill.

“Dear Bill,

I will do whatever you want, including setting my hair on fire.”

Quote:The art will be auctioned off and donated to charity. It really is a magical world, Hobbes ol’ buddy.

^^LOL! Oh, my! This is a bit removed from the "Hobbs, stuffed (toy) tiger as a gentle voice of reason/sanity and philosopher" that I loved so much, but thanks for the find, Tusk!Smile

RE: Random Stuff
^^Thanks, John! It may random, but it's cool stuff. You not only have varied music interests, but you seem to be interested in a variety of, well, random things (stuff) as well.

Vincent Brady's photography and editing skills seem quite good. The approach to Heathrow Airport just seems a little on the scary side.

Ha! Now that hard liquor is in grocery stores (in Washington), I've noticed vodka now comes in a variety of flavors but this one takes the cake! -- a glazed cake doughnut.
