Original Calvin & Hobbes sold for $65,725
The original Calvin & Hobbes auctioned off by Brian Bassett’s ex-wife has been sold for a handsome $65,725 (link requires login). Late last year, the Red and Rover and Adam@Home sold an original hand-colored watercolor Sunday strip of Bill Wattereson’s famous comic strip for $203,150.
For perspective on this auction, back in 2008, a daily Peanuts went up for auction and sold for $52,110. Some of Sparky’s Sunday strips have gone for as much as $113,525.
