Calvin and Hobbes Watercolor Calendar Cover Up for Auction

This is the iconic image of Calvin & Hobbes that may of us remember from the early 90’s. Bill Watterson, the creator and artist behind what two of the most well recognized characters in modern day comic strips, painted this watercolor for the cover of the Calvin & Hobbes 1989/1990 calendar. The very rare artwork will hit the auction block on February 23 during Heritage Auction’s Vintage Comics & Comic Art Signature event, at the Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion (Ukrainian Institute of America) on Fifth Avenue. The artwork is expected to exceed $50,000, as reported by Artdaily. This is comic art at its best.
