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.
