A fascinating investigation of a beloved comic strip The internet is home to impassioned debates on just about everything, but there''s one thing that''s universally beloved: Bill Watterson''s comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. Until its retirement in 1995 after a ten-year run, the strip won numerous awards and drew tens of millions of readers from all around the world. The story of a boy and his best friend - a stuffed tiger - was a pitch-perfect distillation of the joys and horrors of childhood, and a celebration of imagination in its purest form. In Let''s Go Exploring, Michael Hingston mines the strip and traces the story of Calvin''s reclusive creator to demonstrate how imagination - its possibilities, its opportunities, and ultimately its limitations - helped make Calvin and Hobbes North America''s last great comic strip.
Michael Hingston''s writing has appeared in Wired magazine, the Washington Post, and the Guardian. His novel The Dilettantes was a #1 regional bestseller. He is also co-creator of the Short Story Advent Calendar. Hingston lives in Edmonton.
