More of Watterson’s Mark Twain cartoons
Yesterday’s post regarding Bill Watterson’s Mark Twain cartoons caught the eye of Nevin Martell, the author of Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip (my review of Nevin’s book). He passes a long a few more of the cartoons that he’s collected.
He notes that the cartoon below features the a preview of pre-haircut version of Calvin. Nevin says that the original Calvin had a mop-top cut that covered his eyes, but Lee Salem suggested Bill “chop it down to the spiky, ruffled style that became one of Calvin’s many hallmarks.”
Here are a few more. Click for larger version.
Thanks Nevin for the images! If you’ve not read his book, it’s worth a read.
