The TradeWaiters 58: “The Calvin & Hobbes 10th Anniversary Book” by Bill Watterson

Is Calvin a reflection on the inner child? This is one of many questions raised as we read The Calvin and Hobbes Tenth Anniversary Book by Bill Watterson. Calvin and Hobbes are a big part of comics past and present. We reflect on the nostalgia, the history, and the craft of one of the greatest newspaper comics of all times.
