Strong Market for Bill Watterson Comic Art at Nate D. Sanders Auctions
Bill Watterson Comic Art doesn’t come on the market often, and when it does, collectors notice. Although Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes only ran for ten years, it held the record for the highest price ever achieved for a comic strip at auction. An original color Sunday strip sold for an astounding $203,150, a record-breaking sum in 2012. Part of the reason is availability; the majority of original Bill Watterson comic art is in the Bill Watterson Deposit Collection at The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State University. The collection contains the majority of original Calvin & Hobbes artwork.
