I wanted to introduce myself as a representative for the comic syndicate for Calvin and Hobbes and many other comics, Universal Uclick. I’m reaching out in response to your post about Bill Watterson’s recent interview. We’re glad that you think that your audience is still connected a timeless comic strip and a brilliant storyteller.
With your readers showing interest in Bill Watterson and his comic strip, your readers may be interested to know that the entire Calvin and Hobbes archive is available for free on our GoComics website and mobile app – no strings attached. We’re the only place online and via mobile app that is legally approved to display Bill Watterson’s artistry via Calvin and Hobbes.

The GoComics app boasts 4+ star ratings on all platforms and has been featured in Entertainment Weekly’s “The Must List” (May 2013) as well as the “New and Noteworthy” section on the iTunes store in multiple countries.
Good outreach on their behalf, and great to have the comics so easy to read online. Of course I have every single book of them also!
Also a film has been produced on the impact of Calvin and Hobbes on the cartooning world.
