Reclusive ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ creator Bill Watterson speaks

Letter to Romenesko

From DAVE KELLETT: After your very kind 2011 write-up of my documentary film on comic strip cartoonists, I thought I’d send you a fun follow-up: The movie’s about a month from completion, and we were able to land the first-ever audio interview with Bill Watterson, the famously reclusive cartoonist of Calvin & Hobbes! You can hear his voice in the first 10 seconds of the new trailer, here. …thought you’d get a kick out of that!
