Can You Afford Calvin and Hobbes?

Do you have several, possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars? To spend? If so, then you might be in the market for a Calvin and Hobbes original art piece. The above piece, to be exact. Given to cartoonist Basil Basset by Bill Watterson in 1986, the work is going to be auctioned off in November.

For how much is anyones guess, though a non-Calvin and Hobbes related Watterson oil paining went for $13,000, and a watercolour sold for over $100,000 at the beginning of the year. This is a 13x9 original Sunday Strip piece of art. I'd personally sell several members of my family to own this thing. And I think that will be the mindset of most people bidding on it. So bring your big cheque book.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
