Mental Floss gets an interview with "Calvin & Hobbes" creator Bill Watterston

Really, the only thing you need is this one beautiful quote from Bill Watterson: "Repetition is the death of magic."

But here's the deal. Mental Floss magazine got an interview with the reclusive cartoonist, the beloved creator of "Calvin & Hobbes." Yes, the cover is exactly what you think it is.

From the Guardian: (story has lots of links)
The American magazine Mental Floss warmed the hearts of comics fans on Thursday when it announced that it had succeeded where so many others have failed: securing an interview with Bill Watterson, the reclusive creator of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes.
From Poynter
The reporter "somehow got Watterston's email address..."

Bill Watterston gave an interview in 2010.
And one of my favorite things on the internet, a loving tribute/spinoff comic strip, called "Hobbes & Bacon"
