Almost two decades after the end of Great-American-Comic-Strip Calvin and Hobbes, Bill Watterson has released new art. The reclusive (but occasionally quite chatty) artist appears in Stripped, an upcoming documentary about the history of newspaper comic strips. According to The New York Times, Watterson was such a big fan of the movie that he agreed to illustrate the film’s poster. It’s a vintage Watterson joint: Animal companion, articles of clothing spraying in every direction, a hilarious cartoon derriere. Stripped comes out in April — and also features interviews with the creators of For Better or For Worse, Penny Arcade, and Cathy –but you can check out the poster below:
