WASHINGTON (AP) - "Calvin and Hobbes" creator Bill Watterson says he made a brief, unannounced return to newspaper cartooning to raise money for a good cause - and because he thought it would be funny.
Watterson collaborated with "Pearls Before Swine" cartoonist Stephan Pastis on three strips that ran this week. The strips made fun of Pastis' drawing ability, and Watterson drew one panel in each - the first time his art has appeared in the funnies since "Calvin and Hobbes" ended its run in 1995.
Watterson tells The Washington Post he got the idea several years ago after seeing a strip in which Pastis mocked his own drawing by comparing it to Watterson's. He says he joined up with Pastis to benefit a charity that raises money to fight Parkinson's disease.
