I still read C&H every day in my RSS feed. If there is a problem with the feed, I start to panic.

I don't know why mine doesn't have it, I think I'll add it now...

There are 3 C&H books right beside me as I type this.....all of which I've read countless times. I WILL be seeing this movie.

Wannnnnt to see.

The makers of Stripped managed to score an interview with Watterson for their film.  I think all they have is audio, but still...wow.

Looks interesting, but something tells me I couldn't stand to watch this.

For most people, C+H was an elegantly-drawn strip featuring a mascot they'd idolize like G.I. Joe, or point and laugh at like Jon Arbuckle, or want to adventure with like Tin Tin. For me, Calvin's real life struggles were my struggles and he championed through them in a way I wished I had the strength to do. He was the closest thing to therapy I ever had. So yeah - I'm that guy. I'm probably the only person on Earth (besides Bill) who's happy that C+H wasn't licensed into ubiquitousness. It'd be like my daughter getting a job as a stripper.

As a kid, I wanted nothing more than a Hobbes doll (plush, whatever) of my own, and I would scour the mall looking for one. I mean, you couldn't throw a rock without hitting a Garfield doll or a Snoopy doll, so where the hell was Hobbes? I was always dejected (and furious) when I'd leave with my parents.

Now, I completely understand why he did it. Not only did he protect the integrity of the strip by preventing its super-saturation of the media market, he made it almost mythical in doing so. I don't know if the latter was intentional, but it's about the greatest thing that could have happened to the strip. I would buy Mr. Watterson however many beers it would take to sit down and have a chat.

A pity that the sabbatical basically became retirement.

My initial burst of wild excitement was somewhat constrained when it started to look like this was a movie of other people talking about how cool it was.

Yeah, I was hoping for at least a hint that they got Bill to sit down and talk to them.

I suppose he's pretty stingy with his interviews though. He seems like the kind of guy that to get an interview with him, you first have to prove you have questions that a) he's interested in answering, and b) he hasn't answered before.

Aww, don't be mean. Don't ruin his image of himself as special, one of a kind, a snowflake!

there are only two comics I own as the complete works boxset.  The Far Side and Calvin and Hobbes.  I let my now adult daughter read C & H and she is hooked.
