Calvin and Hobbes 1989-90 Calendar Cover Original Artwork Auction

Aside from Charles Schulz’s Peanuts strip, there are few comics in higher demand for original

Aside from Charles Schulz’s Peanuts strip, there are few comics in higher demand for original artwork than that of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes. This theory looks to be put to the test with the impending auction of a piece from a 1989-90 calendar cover. Given the fact that Watterson’s work has largely been unavailable for auction, initial estimates predict the piece going for upwards of $50,000 USD. An artist who inexplicably stopped drawing the highly imaginative Calvin and his friend the tiger, Hobbes, Watterson was a highly private artist who simply didn’t subscribe the to widespread merchandising that other big-name comic strips took. The auction as part Heritage Auctions will take place February 23 at the Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion (Ukrainian Institute of America).
