It's HOBBES, subby. And why would they visit the Peanuts gang?!

I prefer to think Bill Watterson draws a new Calvin and Hobbes strip every day, then burns it and cackles with glee.

Liberty Meadows... originally a daily strip by Frank Cho, he took it to Image Comics in 2004 or 2005, and then abruptly stopped doing new strips it when Marvel started hiring him to do covers.

Frank Cho, or, as I like to call him, "What Rob Liefeld would be if he had any talent."

As is customary with many Heritage auctions, the house declined to identify the buyer out of respect to the buyer's wishes. But Basset was able to convey the recipient's reaction.

"I did find out, though, from the auction house that the proud new owner - a cartoon collector - of the Watterson original is equally thrilled with their purchase."


What was he expecting to hear? That the auction winner was struck by instantaneous and crippling buyer's remorse, having not only realized that he'd overpaid, but that he actually hated all comic art in general and Watterson's work specifically?

Also, I kind of wish this Basset guy didn't feel the need to over-explain how painfully and reluctantly he was parting with this precious, holy relic. I respect the hell out of Bill Watterson, including and especially the extent to which he's doing what he farking wants to do with his life and intellectual property.

But nothing I know about Watterson suggests that he'd be mad at this guy selling off a valuable piece of property when he needs to. He's not Alan Farking Moore, who begrudges you every last drop of joy you've ever had in your life and ESPECIALLY the ones you got from his work. He's not J.D. Salinger, who made himself just visible enough to have the opportunity to tell at least one star-struck teenager per week to fark off and stop bothering him. Watterson just doesn't want to have his ten billionth conversation about that comic strip he used to draw.

Calvin was the boy I wanted to be and in some ways, was. Yet my parents continued to breed despite this.

Cagey B: How much did his landmark "Calvin Pissing" go for?


I assume that you know Watterson had nothing to do with that and you're just being snarky.

That said, the answer to your question is about $1.50 via Amazon.

So effectively he's just a modern knockoff of Art Frahm then.

I worked with and drank with Tom Wilson, the cartoonist that drew Ziggy. In the early 80's, the got $10 for each daily paper and 20 no Sundays. He was syndicated in 350 dailies and 500 Sundays, plus royalties of 4 to 6% of any item using Ziggy. Wealthy guy. I saw him at a ticket counter at the Cleveland airport with a beautiful blond and no luggage. He told the agent, "I don't care what Island, get us to an Island tonight" Must be nice. However, celebrity net worth lists Bill Watterson's net worth at $450 million!
