Sull'Autore

Cartoonist Bill Watterson was born in Washington, D.C. on July 5, 1958. He graduated from Kenyon College in 1980 with a B.A. in Political Science. Before beginning to publish his popular Calvin and Hobbes comic strip in 1985, Watterson worked briefly as a political cartoonist and also designed mostra altro grocery advertisements. Calvin and Hobbes is one of the most well-regarded, successful comics of the twentieth century. Watterson depicted the adventures of an imaginative six-year-old boy and his stuffed tiger for ten years and ended the strip at the height of its popularity. The creator is known for his revolutionary design techniques and refusal to merchandise his characters or allow them to appear in an animated series. Watterson published several collections of his Calvin and Hobbes strips, including "It's a Magical World," "The Days Are Just Packed," and "The Revenge of the Baby-Sat." He has been recognized numerous times for excellence, including receiving two Reuben Awards for Cartoonist of the Year, consecutive Harvey Awards for Best Syndicated Comic Strip from 1990 to 1996, and two Eisner Awards for Best Comic Strip Collection.

Good but few Snow Goons

I loved the second half of the strips, but the first half was slow since I was expecting winter and Snow Goons based on the title. But it started in summer? Different title would have given me different expectations. Good strips, just not what I thought it would be for the most part.

Just ordered pizza! How many pictures books can my wife and I read before it arrives? Here's #1:

A disappointing and depressing parable about how xenophobia and paranoia are bad but nothing matters because we're all just insignificant motes who are all going to die anyway. The art is ugly and creepy to boot.

Yuck.

More marvelous mischief. This one has a fair few strips where Calvin's parents join in the fun, and those are some of my favorites. I particularly like the one where the dad leaves Calvin in the car while he runs an errand, and Calvin and Hobbes hide under a blanket in the back seat. When Dad comes back, he pretends he can't find him and that he's thrilled to have lost him. His playfulness there is great, and Calvin's indignation when he pops up out of hiding is hilarious. This collection also features "the little racoon" sequence, at which I had to put the book down for a bit and come back when I felt ready. Nine strips of gentle weepy brilliance there. ~Feb 2024… (altro)

People fear the forest at first, but when its mysteries become known, they grow over-confident. Their civilization may fall, but the Mysteries will remain.

It's pretty much impossible to separate Watterson from his earlier creation, the beloved comic strip Calvin & Hobbes. If you can, do so before reading this book. Watterson and Kascht's collaboration bears little artistic similarity to C&H, though the messaging is more recognizably Watterson (respect for nature, people are destroying the planet and need to be more thoughtful in general, etc.). Each two-page spread is a full page of artwork and a few lines of text -- a picture book for adults, if you will. There's plenty to discover in the black and white illustrations, and I found myself wondering about the media used to create them. There's more story there than I was able to uncover at a quick perusal, but I also don't feel compelled to return to them, or to own this volume. It's a little bleak for my taste.… (altro)
