Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for November 02, 1993
Nate: Look what I got, Mr. Rosa! An official "oil painting with Rusty" paint brush! Nate: See? It's got a little picture of Rusty on the handle! It's a collector's item! A limited edition! Mr. Rosa: Limited edition? Nate: Yup! Only twelve million of these babies were ever made! Mr. Rosa: I'll hold it carefully. Nate: And check out the bristles! 100% Nylon!
