Bill Watterson was famous in the industry for his staunch views on artist rights and control over licensing and merchandising over against what his publisher wanted to do. Word has it that there's a documentary about Bill Watterson developing Calvin & Hobbes that's wrapping up, or should be, by late 2012 (according to a piece in Wired). If the movie wraps and gets a 2013 then that movie and not others will be the most anticipated film of 2013 for this blogger.
