So cool. I think Jay Ryan was probably influenced by Calvin & Hobbes.

Feel like anyone paying any attention during the Calvin and Hobbes era did, wonderful characters, story's and drawings.

Pretty much. Danger has expressed many times that Watterson is one of his major influences.

I have that set and love it...but it's more for staring at and presenting than actually reading.

Me too. $7k is a little out of reach for me. As much as I would love to go for this, I would also like to continue living in my home more.

You would think with a run of 1000 a few more would show up. I guess there are a bunch of newspaper people out there kicking themselves for not keeping this.
I need more. Nothing seems to satisfy. I don't want it. I just need it. To feel, to breathe, to know I'm alive. - MJK

For a large Watterson OG, I would give up all of my art collection and start over. I've actually thought about this quite a bit, and am serious.

I know you have a pretty serious collection too but I have to say that yeah it would totally be worth it.
