"Expanded Book Chronicles Search for Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes Creator
Posted by Vince Grzegorek on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 at 1:53 PM

"An expanded version of Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip is now available in paperback. In two new chapters, author Nevin Martell continues his fruitless quest for the elusive Watterson, who grew up in Chagrin Falls and still lives in Northeast Ohio.

"As with the previous version of the story, he ferrets out everything he can — short of an interview with the artist.

"For the new parts, says Martell, 'I got in contact with Watterson's college roommate, acquired a copy of the ├╝ber-rare Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes, and had a chance to see the first art that the reclusive artist has exhibited publicly in almost two decades.'"
