Calvin & Hobbes creator Bill Watterson’s collaboraton with Stephan Pastis for his strip Pearls Before Swine – the famously reclusive artist’s first published comic work since Calvin & Hobbes finished (the only other piece is his poster for an upcoming documentary Stripped).
The collaboration, which Pastis describes as “A glimpse of Bigfoot“, was only revealed with the publication of the 3rd strip today.

This Sunday strip from 1986 is being put up for sale at the Vintage Comics & Comic Art Signature Auction in Dallas next November. Lend us a few quid for it, will you? It’ll look perfect hanging in
