5. Bill Watterson

Bill Watterson
William Boyd “Bill” Watterson II is an American artist and the author of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, which was syndicated from 1985 to 1995.
Calvin and Hobbes was and is one of the most widely popular comic strips of all time. When Watterson left, many people wanted to know why, but Watterson has only given two known interviews and drawn one “secret” comic strip since retiring from public life in 1995. It’s been reported that he spends his time painting watercolors.
