The creator of the beloved comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes,” Bill Watterson, is coming back – but not for a kids comic strip. 

Scheduled to be published later this year, “The Mysteries” is a new book slated to be released this year by the American cartoonist along with fellow artist John Kascht about “a fable for grown-ups.”

“[In The Mysteries,] a long-ago kingdom is afflicted with unexplainable calamities,” reads the publisher’s description of the book. “Hoping to end the torment, the king dispatches his knights to discover the source of the mysterious events. Years later, a single battered knight returns.”

What little is known about the release comes from a Simon & Schuster notification.

Here’s what to know so far:

'The Mysteries' is a new 72-page book by Bill Watterson and artist John Kascht who are creating what is described as "a fable for grown-ups." It is scheduled to be published by Andrews McMeel Publishing in the fall of 2023.
