‘Dear Mr. Watterson’ Trailer

Homicidal Psycho Jungle CatMy question is:  What took them so long to acknowledge how awesome “Calvin and Hobbes” are?  I have been reading their adventures for years, and it was brilliant then, so why would time make any difference?

I have always admired comics that were layered, and talked to the audience wherever they happened to be, as opposed to dictating to them.

Calvin and Hobbes comics could be enjoyed by children, yet an adult could read the exact same comic, and get more nuanced shades of meaning from it.

In my book, that’s the definition of brilliance.
