    Will this be online only? Or, also in newspapers? (Yes, I still read newspapers...)

    Great news regardless.

    I hope it ends up good and not an example of the old adage that you can never go home again.

    I hope it does not become a hollow shell of itself like Peanuts and Garfield did.

    I both do and don’t want it to come back. Watterston never sold out and never diluted the quality of his work, and it’s a pretty incredible body of material that stands the test of time. I’d be worried that it would be hard to recapture that. But of course I’d read anything he wrote.

    I both wish he did more work and also respect the hell out of him for not cashing in and not putting out stuff that he doesn’t think is up to his highest standards.

    Remember how good and appropriate his last strip, Sunday, was. He sent Calvin and Hobbes off in style.

    If it comes back on the Internet, perhaps. Newspapers these days don't provide enough space for even mundane comics to look good – much less comics that need a lot of space, like Calvin and Hobbes.

    I had the privilege of attending one of Larson's show years ago at the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History, what an eye opener. On display was almost all his original art work that had to do with nature. It showed his thoughts on a certain subject and how it evolved into the finished panel. Quite an enjoyable experience.
