Calvinism

The discussion thread on my post about the comics centered around that classic comic strip Calvin & Hobbes. It turned out to be a rather timely discussion. I learned today that Universal Press Syndicate is going to be re-runing classic Calvin & Hobbes comic strips through the end of this year. This article has the scoop, along with some details about the history of the strip and some speculation about what the reclusive Bill Watterson has been up to over the past ten years.

I admire him for refusing all the millions of dollars in merchandising if he feels that it would have compromised his artistic integrity. On the other hand, if an copyright-violating sticker of Calvin urinating can become a better seller brand of bumper sticker, just think how popular something that was officially sanctioned and actually worthwhile might have been.
