Now all we need to do is get Bill Watterson to bring back Calvin and Hobbes.

Berke Breathed has been doing it for him:

Holy crap, that's awesome!  Probably the best news I've heard so far this month.  Thanks for sharing, bes!

Heh, that was my immediate next thought after clicking the link (and before I actually read this). 

I don't imagine it'll ever happen (Waterson's occasional collaborations with Breathed aside, he seems determined to stay retired), but it would certainly be wonderful if it did.
