Looking for Calvin and Hobbes
Looking for Calvin and Hobbes The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip By Martell, Nevin Book - 2009

This is the most up to date biography on Bill Watterson and by far the best one I've read. Even though Mevin Martell never got a chance to speak with the man himself, he did interview many cartoonists that knew Watterson, as well as the famed cartoonist's mother. Despite the author having to write this book "as though [Watterson] were dead", it still an intimate look into the life behind Calvin and Hobbes and how the comic came to be. Spoiler alert: Calvin was originally called "Marvin".
