Dear Mr. Watterson

There’s a documentary on Bill Watterson, creator of the irrepressible Calvin & Hobbes. I began reading the newspaper in high school so I could read Calvin & Hobbes. Eventually, I branched out from the comics page, but my first initiation into the wonderful miscellaneous world of daily print was through those comics. It’s perhaps not surprising then that I adore Punch. Calvin was the rebellious soul we all wanted to be, and Hobbes the quiet guide we all wanted. I even use some of his comics in my composition classes when I introduce students to the constraints of a medium.
