    i suspect bill waterson is under a pen name doing other work, but have no proof.

Watterson trod on a lot of publishers’ toes by insisting that C&H never be merchanised, then he trod on a lot of other cartoonists’ toes by insisting that the cartoon be published in newspapers in full half page format, leaving room for… Read more »

    You are dead on correct. I have read Watterson’s story and he is the man.
    Ignore Korinthian.

    It is “thinning of the herds”. Don’t fear, fellow internet nerds, we’re safe.
