Nevin Martell on LOOKING FOR CALVIN AND HOBBES

Author Goes LOOKING FOR CALVIN AND HOBBES

By Zack Smith

 Everyone misses Bill Watterson’s classic comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, and aside from a few new collections, a plethora of bootleg bumper stickers and a disturbingly hilarious Robot Chicken sketch, there hasn’t been much said about the strip since it ended.


 Nevin Martell’s new book, Looking for Calvin and Hobbes seeks to rectify this.  It’s the first in-depth look at the history of the strip and the notoriously reclusive Bill Watterson, drawing from extensive research and interviews to examine the strip and its impact.  We recently got to talk with Martell about his book, and about what made Calvin and Hobbes so memorable.
