ELSEWHERE: “Dear Mr. Watterson” Explores The Ongoing Legacy Of “Calvin & Hobbes”

I think that for people of a certain generation, the comic pages have been forever ruined because of Calvin & Hobbes. Bill Watterson’s clever, whimsical, imaginative comic strip won millions of fans during its 1o-year-run, and its legacy hasn’t dimmed one bit since it ended in 1995. An upcoming documentary titled Dear Mr. Watterson explores this legacy from the perspective of fans and other comic artists. The film premiered at the Wisconsin Film Festival to solid acclaim, and opens in more cities in November. You can watch the trailer here.
