new bill watterson interview

bill watterson at deskBill Watterson, seen here in this horrendously outdated file photo, has given his first interview in 20 years.

I’m not sure what to say, except I’m thankful 1) the reporter asked thoughtful questions and didn’t waste everybody’s time, and 2) Old Bill is still among the living.

We know we won’t get any new Calvin and Hobbes comics. I’m fine with that. What I do wish is for Bill Watterson to continue drawing comics or writing or painting, and to find some way to publish. He is obviously still as sharp and witty as ever. I miss hearing his artistic voice.

More later. For now, bask in the moustachioed glow of Bill Watterson.
