Bill Watterson ComicCalvin and Hobbes” fans are buzzing after Bill Watterson, the iconic strip’s reclusive creator, had a new comic published as a poster for a festival in France.

The poster was published to promote the 42nd annual Angoulême International Comics Festival, which will be held in January, according to TheVerge.com. Watterson agreed to draw the comic as the primary honoree at the festival, although he does not plan to attend. The 15-panel comic contains no captions but the artwork is easily recognizable as Watterson’s.

This is not the first time new work from Watterson has emerged this year. In June, he created three strips for the comic “Pearls Before Swine”. He also drew a poster for the documentary “Stripped.”

Watterson created “Calvin and Hobbes” while living in Chagrin Falls. The first strip was published on Nov. 18, 1985. By the time it ended in 1995, the strip was published in more than 2,400 newspapers and had an audience of hundreds of millions.
