Bill Watterson

As part of my first creative writing course, I was fortunate enough to be exposed to some Bill Watterson writing. We were to read his essay/speech entitled, "The Cheapening of Comics", where he expressed his concerns with the state of the comic industry. It's a really great read, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and thought I should share.

I have to admit that I am not as big a Calvin & Hobbes fan as I'd like to be. I wish I had the time to read the entire anthology, but I don't. Some day I will have to sit down and brush up on my Watterson, as I know it will be worth it.

Anyway, the essay can be found by clicking the title, or here.
