31 Days of Calvin and Hobbes: Day 26


In addition to his transporting/transmogrifying adventures, Calvin has also created a number of aliases for himself. One of these is Spaceman Spiff. Usually, the intergalactic narrative has Calvin navigating the perilous skies, with lots of vivid backgrounds on the strip. The color of the Sunday strips really help in these instances.

Often, Spaceman Spiff is about to crash land when Calvin snaps back to reality. Usually he's about to get into trouble, but occasionally he ends up answering his teacher's or parent's question correctly. I like those more than when he's goofing off, mainly because I enjoy when Calvin celebrates, as in the final panel.
