The author is mentally ill. I feel sad that he hasn't benefited like he deserved from his creation. His refusal to let consumers throw money at him hurt not only himself but his fans who would have been happy to own C&H merchandise.

Watterson benefited plenty from his creation. I am sure he lives comfortably on the residuals from ongoing book sales. The fact that he is happy with his creation as it was originally created does not imply mental illness.

To me, someone who craves limitless wealth far above and beyond what they need and is willing to sacrifice their integrity and the integrity of their art for that money is much more mentally ill.

Unfortunately, I think our society as a whole is mentally ill.

YMMV
