Bill Watterson’s College Comics

Online College Courses has assembled a list of top ten college comic strips:


 “What did Bill Watterson do before creating the beloved Calvin and Hobbes? He drew cartoons for his college newspaper, of course. As a student at Kenyon College, his work appeared in The Kenyon Collegian, revealing a well defined style even in his early years as a comic. Be sure to check out the collection of his college work and enjoy a slice of 70′s American college life.”

Ah hah! Thanks for showing us this gem. As a kid, Calvin and Hobbes is what got me interested in reading and playing with imagination.

This is awesome. Watterson is an interesting character on his own, so this is a really nice new/old perspective on him and his work.

By the way, check out this little thing here (no, sadly it has nothing o do with Watterson, but it's interesting too): http://monsterbrains.blogspot.com/2011/10/hildebrandt-brothers.html
