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.

  1. As an encouraging mum, if I can say so myself, I had a nice time recently with my two kids to decorate their room in our new house that we just moved into. There were lots of the children's art work, made at home and school, that we happily put on the wall.
    Then we spent time together sitting in front of the iMac and looked through the big collection of digital images that had for their customers to select from and have printed as canvas prints. The kids together chose this painting for their room, Ivan Horse by Edmund Dulac,, that we ordered online to have delivered to our new house.
