    Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 2-6-87 (United Feature Syndicate, 1987). "For Garry Trudeau, with great admiration" reads Watterson's inscription. Very few originals of this strip have been available to collectors, and we have never seen a hand-colored one before -- but the fact that it was a gift to another all-time-great comic strip creator explains why Watterson took the time. This very funny daily was chosen to be reprinted on 1-31-92 while Bill Watterson was on sabbatical. Rendered in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12" x 3.75". It has been hand-colored with watercolor - the only hand-colored daily we've ever offered by the artist. Signed in Panel 2, then personalized and signed below the image area. From the Garry Trudeau Collection.
