Calvin and Hobbes has always been a truly unique and surreal comic strip. "Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip" tells the story of the cartoonist behind the legendary strip and the strip itself, both sharing the qualities of being offbeat and unique. Calvin and Hobbes is one of the only intellectual properties that was never widely marketed due to the author's own integrity, a truly unusual trait in this world where Garfield the cat gets two full length motion pictures. "Looking for Calvin and Hobbes" is a choice pick for fans of the strip who want to understand the mind of its creator.
