It’s not often Bill Watterson talks publicly about his art. The “Calvin and Hobbes” cartoonist retired his widely read comic strip in 1995 and has granted few interviews since then. But he recently talked to Ohio State staff about the state of cartoon art and an exhibit at the university featuring his work.


The future of research

Denman Forum
