Dear Mr. Watterson: Stephan Pastis

In this new documentary called "Dear Mr. Watterson", Stephan Pastis, creator of "Pearls Before Swine", discusses what makes a great comic strip character.




His theory is that most, if not all, of the great comic strip characters are, in someway, losers. On the one hand, I can understand where's he's coming from and his reasoning. Then again, if being a loser was all it took for comic greatness, then Anthony would be King of the Funnies. Still, I think it applies to FBorFW, even if Lynn never intended it that way. Nothing ever really goes the way her befuddled, dimwitted heroine really expects or wants it to, does it?
