A New Comic From Bill Watterson!

Created for France’s Angoulême International Comics Festival, it’s vintage stuff. Bravo, ht KW:


The comic’s appearance prompted one fan to ask, “Is Bill Watterson Staging a Comeback?”

Can’t pass up the opportunity to mention our “Resolving to Love Calvin and Hobbes” post from a few years ago. A personal favorite.

Another Week Ends: Secret Auden, Eagleton Deicide, Remembering Wes, Method Acting, True Detective, and Russian Tourist Tips

1. Holy smokes! Have you read Edward Mendelson’s “The Secret Auden” in the NY Review of Books?! If not, run don’t walk. It’s a jaw-dropping, incredibly inspiring catalog of the clandestine episodes of grace initiated by our all-time favorite Wystan–about as honest a Matthew 6:5 vibe as I’ve come across in ages. Lest these remarkable […]

Another Week Ends: OWL Pushback, Antihero Armstrong, Pearls for Gleason, New McCartney, Ambitious Slackers, Space Cowboys, Food-Profiling, and Dilbert’s Failure

1. Yesterday I mentioned the name-dropping op-ed that appeared on the Washington Post, Tullian Tchividjian’s “The Missing Message in Today’s Churches.” It’s fine little piece, notable as much for where it was published as what it is saying, most of which will be familiar to readers of this site: “Too many churches perpetuate the impression […]

2. Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson breaks his silence and gives an interview!

Another Week Ends: Motivated Podcasts, Inverted Envy, Doofus Batman, Evensong Revelations, Rowling Rewards, Salinger Silence, Denny Lives Again, and Watterson’s Speech

1. “Want to Win a Political Debate? Try Making a Weaker Argument” reads a headline over at The Pacific Standard, and what follows is a helpful refresher on the overpowering role of self-image when it comes to argumentation. In very Haidt-esque fashion, and with the help of some fresh research, the article claims that the […]

Resolving to Love Calvin and Hobbes (25 Years Later)

This’ll make you feel old: New Year’s Eve 2020 marked the 25th anniversary of the end of Calvin and Hobbes. While two decades may sound like a long time, the strip has dated remarkably little. Instead, it is slowly but surely being recognized as the work of art that it is, and not just by […]

A Slightly Less Quick Calvin and Hobbes

Did someone say “Honesty, Humility and the Grace of God”?!

Bill Watterson on Imaginary Ladders and Happy Lives

I was searching for something/anything on Calvin and Hobbes‘ creator Bill Watterson this past weekend and came across the graduation speech he gave in 1990 at – you guessed it – Kenyon College. For those keeping score, this marks the third Kenyon speech we’ve excerpted (is there something in the water in Gambier?). While the […]
