Do you remember Calvin and Hobbes? Calvin was a six year old smart alec kid and Hobbes was his stuffed Tiger that came to life when no one else was around. I loved everything about Calvin and Hobbes except one thing.
Bill Waterson. Mr. Waterson was so afraid that someone other than himself would make any money on that comic strip. No kind of Calvin and Hobbes product was acceptable to him. None.
He drove the Universal Syndicate car to fame with his comic strip then abandoned it on the railroad tracks. To Universal’s credit they let the ingrate go without fuss and today very few people even remember one of the best comics ever.
Bill Waterson. Asshole extraordinaire.
