Calvin and Hobbes, Ten Years On

It's been ten years since Bill Watterson drew his last Calvin and Hobbes cartoon strip. There's a lovely tribute to the cartoons in this morning's Washington Post, to celebrate the release of a deluxe Complete Calvin and Hobbes, available in all good bookstores. Bill Watterson would have made a mint if he'd ever permitted merchandising, and he never has. Amazing.
