COLUMBUS: Famously reclusive “Calvin and Hobbes” cartoonist Bill Watterson is speaking out on the occasion of an exhibit of his work opening at the cartoon library and museum at Ohio State University.

Watterson, an Ohio native, has granted few interviews since retiring his hugely popular “Calvin and Hobbes” strip in 1995. Recently he agreed to answer some questions from Jenny Robb, the curator at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. The museum released a transcript Thursday, and parts were published by The Columbus Dispatch.

Watterson says that declining newspaper readership could keep people from building a relationship with new comics as readers did with “Calvin and Hobbes,” which at its peak ran in 2,400 papers worldwide.

The exhibit opens Saturday.
