Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip - Nevin Martell I was disappointed in this book. It doesn't give any real insight into Bill Watterson and instead reads more like a biography, interspersed with interviews and descriptions of Calvin & Hobbes strips to demonstrate certain points. The book is noticeably lacking in any reproductions of Watterson's work. Given his stance on licensing, one can assume that rights to reproduce the strips for the book was not given. Though the author tried valiantly to get an interview with Watterson, he was unable to do so. Not a big surprise given Watterson's well known reclusive nature. Unfortunately, though it seems like his heart is in the right place, Martell is unable to provide any new information or insight on Watterson. Watterson will probably forever remain a mystery, which is probably just how he wants it. Maybe I'll go read some Calvin & Hobbes...
