Calvin and Hobbs Artwork Solf For Research

Art­work from “Calvin and Hobbes” cre­ator Bill Wat­ter­son will be auc­tioned to ben­e­fit Parkinson’s dis­ease research. Wat­ter­son cre­ated the three comic strips in June after a long absence from the funny pages. The strips will be sold Fri­day by Dallas-based Her­itage Auc­tions, with each expected to sell for more than $10,000. At Watterson’s request, the art­work is being sold on behalf of Team Cul de Sac, a char­ity estab­lished in honor of car­toon­ist Richard Thomp­son, who has Parkinson’s. The pro­ceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foun­da­tion for Parkinson’s Research.
