Artist Bill Watterson decided to end his beloved Calvin and Hobbes comic strip on New Year’s Eve of 1995. He avoided licensing his creations to toy makers or movie makers, but a Kickstarter documentary will examine his legacy. Here’s more about the film:

It has now been more than a decade since the end of the Calvin & Hobbes era. Bill Watterson has kept an extremely low profile during this time, living a very private life outside of Cleveland, Ohio. Despite his quiet lifestyle, Mr. Watterson is remembered and appreciated daily by fans who still enjoy his amazing collection of work … This film is not a quest to find Bill Watterson, or to invade his privacy. It is an exploration to discover why his ‘simple’ comic strip made such an impact on so many readers in the 80s and 90s, and why it still means so much to us today.
