Bill Watterson: 'Calvin & Hobbes' creator's new poster

Posted on


Almost two decades after the end of Great-American-Comic-Strip Calvin and Hobbes, Bill Watterson has released new art. The reclusive (but occasionally quite chatty) artist appears in Stripped, an upcoming documentary about the history of newspaper comic strips. According to The New York Times, Watterson was such a big fan of the movie that he agreed to illustrate the film’s poster.

Stripped comes out in April — and also features interviews with the creators of For Better or For WorsePenny Arcade, and Cathy –but you can check out the poster below:
