Team Cul De Sac1 Team Cul De Sac Auction Goes Live!Richard Thompson and his charming Cul de Sac comic strip have numerous fans in the comics community.  So, when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, his personal friend Chris Sparks started educating himself on the disease and the best ways to help. His research lead him to create Team Cul de Sac, a division of Team Fox and The Micheal J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

Many of you have heard about and seen Bill Watterson’s painting of Petey Otterloop (scroll down if you haven’t).  What many have overlooked is that numerous cartoonists, both from comic strips and comic books, have created original artwork to benefit Team Cul de Sac.

A benefit book (seen above) will be published by Andrews McMeel in June, and the art is currently being auctioned by Heritage Auctions, with final bidding Sunday, June 10 in Dallas.  All 148 lots can be viewed online, and if you register, you can bid on the artwork.

This is an incredible auction!  Not only is it for a great cause, but you’ll find original artwork here from many artists!  Yes, Bill Watterson is known for being a recluse, never showing his paintings to anyone, but many other comic strip creators rarely attend comics conventions or do sketches.  I’ve selected some of the more interesting pieces and posted them below, but please visit the Heritage Auctions website and place a bid!  If you can’t afford the original artwork, click on the book link above and order a copy of the hardcover.  There’s a Google Preview available, which shows the artwork in color, along with the a foreword from Richard Thompson, and a profile reprinted from the Washington Post.

Go read the comic strip for free! It’s as good as Calvin & Hobbes, but different.  Or, if  you like your comics the old fashioned way, buy the books!
