The Devil and Billy Markham Billy, Scuzzy, and God It's the Nashville Country Corner, all the low are getting high.And Billy tells his tale again to anyone who'll buy.With waving arms and rolling eyes, he screams to the drunken throng,"I've whipped the Devil and lived through Hell, now who's gonna sing my song?" Then from the shadows comes an oily voice, "Hey, kid, I like your moves."And out of the back slides a little wizened cat with brown-and -white perforated wing-tip shoes."

Calvin and Hobbes' reclusive creator gives rare interview The American magazine Mental Floss warmed the hearts of comics fans on Thursday when it announced that it had succeeded where so many others have failed: securing an interview with Bill Watterson, the reclusive creator of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. It was only the second known interview with Watterson since he ended his popular strip in 1995. In the years since, Watterson retreated to a private life in north-east Ohio, where has carefully guarded the rights to his creation, refusing to license them or revisit them creatively.
