Bill Watterson has been retired for the better part of 20 years and this surprising resurgence is sure to delight hard-core fans everywhere. In the comic he is a smart-ass second grader called "Libby" (kinda like "Bill", backwards) and engages in some side-splitting banter. Share & Enjoy.
"Several years ago," Watterson told the Post, "when Stephan did one of his strips that mocked his own drawing ability and mentioned my strip in comparison, I thought it might be funny for me to ghost ‘Pearls’ sometime, just to flip it all on its head."
However, when the opportunity to raise funds for Team Cul de Sac, a charity co-founded by fellow cartoonist Richard Thompson to fight Parkinson's Disease, arose, Watterson reached out to Pastis to do a team-up.
For Pastis' part, Watterson reaching out to him "is like getting a call from Bigfoot."
