Calvin and Hobbes, DE's CLASSIC PICK of the day (9-15-14) - I'll NEVER BE ABLE TO WRITE THAT MUCH! IT'S NOT FAIR!! (seems a reasonable reaction when asked to write one paragraph about his summer vacation)
William "Bill" Boyd Watterson II (born July 5, 1958) is an American cartoonist and the author of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, which was syndicated from 1985 to 1995. Watterson stopped drawing Calvin and Hobbes at the end of 1995 with a short statement to newspaper editors and his readers that he felt he had achieved all he could in the medium. Watterson is known for his views on licensing and comic syndication, as well as for his reclusive nature.
Calvin and Hobbes QUOTE OF THE DAY (DA): "If heaven is good, and if I like to be bad, how am I supposed to be happy there? ...Maybe heaven is a place where you're ALLOWED to be bad!" -- Calvin/Bill Watterson
Calvin and Hobbes, Commander Coriander (3 of 3 DA) - Architects should be forced to live in the buildings they design, and children's book authors should be forced to read their stories aloud every single night of their rotten lives. (true that)
