    Description

    Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 5-20-86 (Universal Press Syndicate, 1986). Original Calvin and Hobbes strips more rare than a talking tiger, and we have only offered two older than this one before. The gag on this one could make Buster Brown proud. We can easily see Buster pulling this prank on Tige. Best of all, this strip is signed and very sweetly personalized "To Alf Thorsjö, my first fan in Sweden, with best wishes, Bill Watterson" in the lower margin. Created in ink over graphite on bright white Bristol board with an image area of 12" x 3.75". In Excellent condition.
