The official trailer for Dear Mr. Watterson is out, and it looks great. I’m sure it’s supposed to be about Bill Watterson, but we all know who the real stars will be.
We have stacks of Calvin and Hobbes books laying around the house, displaying their signs of love and frequent use in every torn cover and dogeared page. I’ve used them in youth ministry, preaching, teaching, and, of course, my own personal therapy. And I have fond memories of walking into my daughter’s room late at night to find her propped up in her crib with a Calvin and Hobbes open in her lap. (Or, just as often, fast asleep with one of the books covering her face.) Good times.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to this one.
