In this edition of FDL: a legendary cartoonist surprises fans with a secret new comic strip, his first in nineteen years. As Salon.com reported yesterday, legendary comic strip artist and Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson made a secret return to the comic world this week.
Watterson collaborated with cartoonist Stephen Pastis as a secret guest artist for Pastis’ comic-strip Pearls Before Swine. The three comic strips ran in papers this week marking Watterson’s art’s first appearance in papers since 1995, when the last Calvin and Hobbes strip was printed. Check out the Watterson’s first comic strips in nearly two decades below.
Last year, Bill Watterson was featured in a BitTorrent Bundle for a wonderful biographical documentary, Dear Mr. Watterson, showcasing the impact of Watterson’s work and the special relationship Calvin and Hobbes fans share with the legendary characters. Check out the trailer and exclusive bonus footage from the film below.
Spend Friday with one of the most legendary cartoonists in American history.
