“Calvin & Hobbes” hanno trent’anni
di Antonio Russo

"Ad eccezione di due calendari del 1989 e del 1990, di un libro di testo scolastico del 1993 (“Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes”) e di un francobollo stampato dallo United States Postal Service nel 2010, non esistono prodotti che raffigurino legalmente – cio√® con una regolare licenza di merchandising – personaggi o scene di Calvin & Hobbes."

"Bonus Fact: Bill Watterson, the creator of comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, almost never licenses his characters for commercial use. One exception, though, came in 1993, when a special education teacher wrote to him to tell him that her students found Watterson’s characters engaging and asked him to license a textbook for her and others to use. He agreed, “Teaching with Calvin and Hobbes” entered a limited print run. Because the print run was so small and because Watterson doesn’t often authorize licensed product, the book is now very expensive, even for a textbook."
