|Bill Watterson, the mastermind behind Calvin and Hobbes, sneakily returned to drawing comics by guest drawing Pearls Before Swine. The entire story has been posted by the author and it's really amazing.|
He said he knew that in my strip, I frequently make fun of my own art skills. And that he thought it would be funny to have me get hit on the head or something and suddenly be able to draw. Then he’d step in and draw my comic strip for a few days.
The cartoonist who last drew Calvin and Hobbes riding their sled into history would return to the comics page. To draw Pearls Before Swine. What followed was a series of back-and-forth emails where we discussed what the strips would be about, and how we would do them. He was confident. I was frightened.
