We're excited that today is our official DVD & Blu-ray release date! It is available only from our website at www.dearmrwatterson.com/store, and if you have thought about gifting it for Christmas, you'll probably want to order ASAP.
Maybe some of you have noticed that Bill Watterson has been in the news lately. One reason is that he and cartoonist Richard Thompson (Cul de Sac) are doing a joint exhibition at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum starting March 22nd. I, for one, hope to somehow make it there before it ends. See a bit more information here. The second reason that a Bill Watterson biopic is apparently in development. If you'd like to know more, look here.
If friends or family members have been asking about where they can find Dear Mr. Watterson, here are some other options:

And last, people have been asking about how they can help, and here are some really simple things you can do: Tell your fellow Calvin & Hobbes fans about us! Rate the movie on IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes or iTunes or wherever you occasionally rate movies. If you've got a Netflix account, do a search for Dear Mr. Watterson (it's kind of like a vote that you want to see the movie there). And, if you're hoping the film will come to an independent theater near you, don't be afraid to call the theater about showing the film.
Thanks and Happy Holidays!
