Synopsis
"Calvin & Hobbes" dominated the Sunday comics in thousands of newspapers for over 10 years. When its creator, Bill Watterson, retired the strip on New Year's Eve in 1995, devoted readers everywhere felt the void left by the departure of Calvin, Hobbes, and Watterson's other cast of characters. This is an attempt to discover why this seemingly simple comic strip made such an impact on so many readers in the 1980s and '90s, and why it still resonates today.
