    Re: Bill Waterson does in fact enjoy fan work

    I'm curious about something. The letter from John Glynn says "We're protective of the copyright for a variety of reasons, most importantly it is the express and unwavering wish of the creator that any use of Calvin and Hobbes was limited to work he'd created and in very specific formats." I'm pretty sure that Bill Waterson would not have specifically said, I don't want my work used for anything beyond books and decals on trucks of Calvin peeing, because Calvin peeing is an acceptable use of my work. I think John Glynn is totally full of it and it wouldn't surprise me if if this transformative work suddenly has an "official" version appear in a year or two.
