Calvin & Hobbes was one of the most popular comic strips to dominate newspaper stands for well over a decade and now 'Dear Mr. Watterson -- A Calvin & Hobbes Documentary' aims to explore why this comic strip had such a massive influence on society.
The documentary project (Directed by Joel Schroeder) began as a passion project in 2007 on Kickstarter and with the funds raised from its original campaign, was able to film numerous interviews with celebrities and other comic strip artists.
Now, the project needs additional funds for the remainder of Dear Mr. Watterson. So far, the project interviewed people such as Lee Salem (Bill Watterson's editor), Seth Green (co-creator, Robot Chicken) and Dog Eat Doug creator Brian Anderson.
The only downside is that the film does not feature more of the actual Mr. Watterson, as he does like to keep to himself, but I personally cannot wait to see this film come to fruition.
