Bill “Calvin and Hobbes” Watterson secretly collaborates on Pearls Before Swine

pearlsbeforeswineWattersonIt’s funny how this comic on the left from Stephan Pastis, got Mr. Bill Watterson to make his first new comic panel since 1995! In Pearls before Swine, the main character gets upstaged by a second grader named Libby, who is trying to interview a cartoonists.



The collaboration ended in Bill Watterson collaborating with Stephan Pastis on three strips, where Pastis would send him the pages with his art, Watterson would then add his art, and then scan and e-mail Pastis the art. This was done for a number of reasons, one of course is so that the pages can be auctioned for charity. For more on this story, please visit Pastis’ blog article here.
