‘Dear Mr. Watterson’


Director: Joel Alan Schroeder

Language: English

Readers of this paper will surely be familiar with the comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes,” in reruns since its creator Bill Watterson bowed out at the height of his popularity in 1995 and became a recluse. Here you will find testaments from a generation of comic artists to his unique ability to touch people’s hearts. While it’s a bit of a love-fest, the film does a good job of exploring Watterson’s roots and his unswerving idealism regarding the artform. Now on Vimeo and iTunes.
