    Description

    Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-28-86 (Universal Press Syndicate, 1986). Not only are original Calvin and Hobbes strips more rare than a talking tiger -- we have only offered three for sale before -- this one stars "Fearless Spaceman Spiff"! Just as Snoopy occasionally appeared as the WWI Flying Ace in the Peanuts strip, and Opus and company starred in many Star Trek parody strips from Bloom County, "Fearless Spaceman Spiff" has a large cult-following among Calvin and Hobbes fans. That would likely make this the most desirable of the very, very few Bill Watterson original strips we have ever even seen. Produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12" x 3.75". It is signed and dated in the last panel, then personalized and signed under the image area. Nicely matted to 16" x 8", and ready to frame! In Excellent condition.
