Oh. Hell. Yes., “Calvin and Hobbes” edition

A documentary, “Dear Mr. Watterson,” ┬áhas been made about the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes and its creator, Bill Watterson. C&H has to be among the top five comic strips ever drawn, and when Watterson quit, he, like Jim Brown and Barry Sanders in the NFL, went out prematurely and on top. Moreover, he never licensed his characters, meaning that the literally millions of Americans who would buy “Calvin & Hobbes” t-shirts, coffee mugs, whatever (and I’m one of them) never got to give Watterson their money.

Scheduled release date for “Dear Mr. Watterson,” theatrical and video-on-demand, is Nov. 15.

… for this:

Today presents you with a chance to get in on the ground floor of a new comic series.

About six feet under the ground floor, technically.

The series is I, Zombie, described by its publisher Vertigo as a mix of zombie girl detective, urban fantasy and romantic dramedy.

And people say literature is dead.
