If you didn’t have the zillions of dollars to buy a Watterson original, get a signed print

Great news from Anne Hambrock, founder and organizer of the The Kenosha Festival of Cartooning:

The Kenosha Festival of Cartooning is THRILLED to announce that among the items we are offering in the National Cartoonists Society Foundation Benefit Auction is a RARE signed print of the last Calvin & Hobbes strip!

When Bill Watterson retired in 1995 his syndicate, Universal Press, made a limited number of prints of the December 31, 1995 Sunday strip to be given to newspaper editors as a “thank you” for running Calvin & Hobbes. Bill signed these prints personally. Unlike other “signed Watterson” items you might find running around on the internet, this print was donated to the auction directly by Universal Uclick, Watterson’s syndicate. Straight from the horse’s mouth as it were.

Included with the print, which is matted but not framed, will be the three volume set of the complete Calvin & Hobbes, still in its shrink wrap. The print and the books would make a FABULOUS Christmas gift for the Calvin lover in your life! Full details of pricing and item description will be posted Friday September 12 2014 with the other items up for bidding.
