Bill Watterson gives interview about CALVIN AND HOBBES

It's been fifteen years since Calvin and Hobbes took their sleigh ride off the comics pages and into cartooning history. They haven't been seen since and now in an extremely rare interview, Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson looks back on it all and reflects on the strip's enduring charm... as well as his thoughts about ending the cartoon's run at the height of its popularity.

I'm not gonna hit the "publish" button on this post without saying that in my opinion, Calvin and Hobbes is the all-time greatest comic strip ever. Hard to pin down a favorite "arc" but the one about the snow goons stands out in my mind as classic Calvin :-)
