Ever Wished That Cavin and Hobbes Creator Would Return

Bill Watterson is the Bigfoot of cartooning.

I was traveling through Cleveland on a book tour, and I knew that he lived somewhere in the area. I also knew that he was working with Washington Post cartoonist Nick Galifianakis on a book about Cul de Sac cartoonist Richard Thompson’s art.

So I took a shot and wrote to Nick. And Nick in turn wrote to Watterson.

This is a great story and worth your 5 minutes!
