The Calvin and Hobbes cartoon ran for ten years from 1985 to 31 Dec 1995.
The comic only came to my attention a couple of years later, but still, I've been a fan since the Spice Girls still had chart toppers. And, as you may well have noticed whilst perusing this website, my 'fandom' remains steadfast, actually its stronger than ever, because as you will know, or soon find out, this comic is timeless.
Thank you Mr. Watterson. Your genius is much appreciated!
I will be stopping Calvin and Hobbes at the end of the year. This was not a recent or an easy decision, and I leave with some sadness. My interests have shifted, however, and I believe I've done what I can do within the constraints of daily deadlines and small panels. I am eager to work at a more thoughtful pace, with fewer artistic compromises. I have not yet decided on future projects, but my relationship with Universal Press Syndicate will continue.
That so many newspapers would carry Calvin and Hobbes is an honor I'll long be proud of, and I've greatly appreciated your support and indulgence over the last decade. Drawing this comic strip has been a privilege and a pleasure, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity.
Bill Watterson quotes:
I think we dream so we don't have to be apart so long. If we're in each other's dreams, we can play together all night.
That's the whole problem with science. You've got a bunch of empiricists trying to describe things of unimaginable wonder.
