HeroesCon 2014 is proud to display the first published comic strip art from Bill Watterson in nearly twenty years! Watterson completed his inimitable Calvin and Hobbes strip in 1995, and has since remained largely private in his life and art. If you happened to read Stephan Pastis‘ popular Pearls Before Swine strip this week, you may have noticed that Pastis employed a guest artist, billed as a second grade girl named Libby, to help him with three strips. Astute readers speculated about the true identity of the guest artist, and today the Washington Post revealed it to be none other than the legendary Bill Watterson! Pastis tells the whole story on his blog.
In conjunction with Chris Sparks and Team Cul de Sac, we are happy to be bringing all three Watterson and Pastis strips to Charlotte to display at HeroesCon, June 20 through 22 at the Charlotte Convention Center. The art will be displayed on the convention floor all weekend, at our Drink and Draw event on Friday night, and at Saturday night’s Art Auction. We’ll also be hosting a panel on Friday, June 20 where fans will get to hear the story of how this remarkable art was produced, how it came to be featured in Charlotte, and the part that Cul de Sac cartoonist Richard Thompson plays in all of it.
The three strips produced by Watterson and Pastis will be auctioned off in the coming months, with all proceeds from the sale going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. This charity works closely with our good friends at Team Cul de Sac, for whom we host our annual HeroesCon Drink and Draw charity event. More specifics regarding the auction of these pieces will be available at HeroesCon, here on our site and at Team Cul de Sac‘s page in the coming weeks.
HeroesCon is the only place anyone will be able to see the rare Watterson and Pastis original art in person before they are auctioned off. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for comic and art fans across the country, and we are humbled and honored to be bringing it to Charlotte.
HeroesCon takes place June 20 – 22 at the Charlotte Convention Center. The Bill Watterson and Cul de Sac panel takes place Friday, June 20 at 5:30 at the convention center.

Please keep your hooves, paws, and snouts inside the ride at all times— the Pearls Before Swine gang is back! Pearls Falls Fast: A Pearls Before Swine Treasury continues the saga of lovable Pig, cynical Rat, and the whole crew with two years’ worth of the award-winning, New York Times best-selling comic strip Pearls Before Swine. This treasury includes strips from the collections Unsportsmanlike Conduct and Rat’s Wars, along with new commentary from cartoonist Stephan Pastis himself, showcasing even more of his cynical wit and humor than the papers can handle.
Join the Pearls family as they face:
• Stephan going on trial for offensive content
• The crocodiles’ awkward foray into the world of politics
• Zebra’s hilariously futile attempts to bond with his long-lost son, “Plaid”
• Even more of Stephan’s shameless Sunday puns • And many more misadventures!
