"Cul de Sac has it all," Bill Watterson remarked of Richard Thompson's comic strip, "knowledge, soft humor, a beautiful way with words, plus, most unexpected, beautiful, marvelous graphics." The creator of Calvin and Hobbes went on now to compliment Thompson's distinct style, saying, "The art in Cul de Sac knocks me out," he said, adding that "Thompson also has a natural knack for watercolor painting." Nevertheless, I'm not shocked at this point."

Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes and Berkeley Breathed of Bloom County has had a friendly feud for decades. Whereas Watterson is principled and private, Breathed isn't averse to selling his works and can't resist a nice convention appearance.

Breathed showed off some original Watterson artwork at a 2010 Comic-Con panel that had never seen the light of day before - since they were private missives roasting Breathed into extinction.

When comic artists from the 1990s quit being polite... and started getting genuine, this is what happens:
