Marvel Comics and Planned Parenthood teamed up in 1976 to make a comic promoting safe sex, and it’s kind of amazing.

Devoted fans of Calvin and Hobbes—and anyone who’s seen the recent documentary Dear Mr. Watterson­—know that its creator, Bill Watterson, effectively retired from cartooning after ending the beloved comic strip at the height of its popularity. (He’s done some painting and watercolors in the years since.)




But Watterson gave what is apparently his “first-ever recorded interview” (meaning, presumably, first on-camera or on-tape interview, since he’s done print interviews before, albeit rarely) to the makers of Stripped, a new documentary about comic strips. And he liked the film so much that he decided to draw the poster.
Jesus Diaz at Sploid notes that this is, arguably, Watterson’s first published cartoon since the end of Calvin and Hobbes. Diaz also speculates that this figure could be a grown-up Calvin—the hair looks familiar—though I don’t think we need to speculate quite so wildly in order to take a lot of pleasure in this.

This one was from August 8th and I kept meaning to post it. Of course I thought of Hugh when I saw it.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

- Henri Nouwen

Also... Gnomes and gardens and cats and dogs and hiking and nature and nephews/nieces and more.
