New Artwork from Calvin and Hobbes Creator Bill Watterson

Long-retired and norotiously low-key, comic creator Bill Watterson of everyone (yes, literally everyone)’s favourite comic strip Calvin and Hobbes has just broken his illustration silence.

According to, Watterson was “so impressed” with the upcoming documentary Stripped, investigating the lives and careers of cartoonists in an era when newspapers are dropping like flies, that he decided to create the movie’s poster. According to Stripped‘s website, it’s Watterson’s first comic in 19 years.

Holy shit. Check out the trailer for the film (it looks terrific) and catch Watterson’s full poster after the jump.
