Without clicking through...looks mucho carby...so it's garbage.

And...

Ingredients:  Corn meal*, rolled oats*, cane sugar*, whole wheat meal*, peanut butter *, Fair Trade dark chocolate chunks* (cane sugar*, unsweetened chocolate*, cocoa butter*, vanilla extract*), molasses*, sunflower oil*, fair trade cocoa powder*oat bran*, barly malt extract*, wheat bran*, flavours* (chocolate, vanilla), sea salt, rice starch, honey*, tocopherols.

So that's sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar, sugar...some wheat-junk that is converted to sugar...sugar, sugar, sugar...need I go on? lol

Yeah it’s true.   If you want to have a healthy cereal you eat plain oatmeal and that’s about it

really disappointed that when I was going to Kent State way long time ago, that I did not know that he lived in the next town over.  Missed opportunity to become a stalker.

Me either. I attended Toledo law school in the late 70’s (I’m old AF)

There's a reason you and I do not look like...

However 'healthy cereal' is an oxymoron. Pass.

Lost those last 10 nasty gut pounds, that weren't coming off even running 5 miles a day, when I cut out oatmeal.

If I'm hungry before lunch to begin with, it's raw fruits/vegetables only.

It's only a print but will probably go for big coin regardless.

I know. But they still always go for thousands. I’m tempted myself. His works truly were magical 

It IS a great strip and was a fine way to end the "show".

I have the big brown C & H hardcover - the entire C & H.  Good time to start (and finish) it.

I just now found out there was a way to edit a topic, but I preserved my dumbassery for integrity 

Good man!  Remember also that you made me look moderately funny, so I highly support this decision.

Wow, that's a lot for a print which, according to the auction offer, "was sent from Universal Press Syndicate to newspapers that carried the strip." That's a lot of newspapers, thus a lot of prints. Maybe many weren't well preserved, but still...

There's value to the Watterson signature, I think.  And I guess there's a sense that this is as close as most of us will ever get.

Love Calvin and Hobbes

I have one book signed by him from the Fireside Bookstore in Chagrin Falls, which I go to from time to time, ever watchful for a glimpse of the elusive one. 
 

I also have this signed sketch in his Tenth Anniversary book that he gave to his dental hygienist, if I recall correctly.
