That Brian Basset-Owned Calvin & Hobbes Piece Receives $200K Bid

Michael Cavna has details. I don't even have the hint of a philosophy for covering original art sales, so I can't really plug this into anything except 1) whoa, that's a lot of money for a strip, 2) Calvin and Hobbes fans strike me as being right at that age where some of them are insanely rich and can afford something like this. The shift in what sells as original art over the next quarter-century should be fascinating, because I'm not sure that some of the artists that are important to people my age and older are going to be important in any way to those younger than we are.
