Calvin & Hobbes original fetches $65,725

From The Daily Cartoonist.

Calvin & Hobbes for auction
Just a couple of months after an original Bill Watterson watercolor Sunday of Calvin & Hobbes was sold for an outstanding $203,150, another original Calvin & Hobbes went to the auction block. This strip is a daily and was part of a swap of originals between Brian Bassett, creator of Adam@Home and Red and Rover, and Watterson back in 1986. Brian’s motivations last fall was to relieve a financial pinch created by a divorce and an upcoming marriage. This latest strip, however was auctioned by Brian’s ex-wife Linda. Both the Sunday original and daily are signed with best wishes to both Brian and Linda.

The November 03, 1986 strip features Calvin making a get-well card with Hobbes with the ulterior motivation of her making his bed, putting away his clothes and feeding him.
