Dear Mr. Watterson, a new documentary about Calvin and Hobbes directed by Joel Allen Schroeder, arrives in theaters and on demand this Friday, Nov. 15. We’ve been looking forward to it since the trailer hit the Web back in July, and the filmmakers have agreed to share with us the exclusive clip below, about three comic strips that arguably had the greatest influence on Bill Watterson and his creation. Enjoy.
