The Washington Post has an article about the strip Calvin and Hobbes. I can’t believe it’s been ten years since Watterson retired the duo. While I can understand his motivations for quitting while he was ahead, the comics page just isn’t the same anymore.

The article provides some interesting info on Watterson who seems to be as much of a recluse as Vangelis. It also confirms a suspicion I had concerning the origin of the name of Calvin’s teacher, Ms. Wormwood. The name was, in fact, drawn from The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis.
