31 Days of Calvin and Hobbes: Day 10

I remember reading that Bill Watterson wasn't a fan of the Sunday comics layout. He always wanted to create vibrant, everreaching landscapes, and he found the boxes he was required to stay in to be cumbersome, at best. Nevertheless, I think he does a pretty fantastic job with it.

This one's last panel cracks me up (I'm laughing as I type this), but the whole imagery is wonderful. Calvin often imagines himself as other creatures, and the fly in particular is disgusting. It's actually a perfect analogy for a six-year-old: filthy, annoying, and in the way. Well done.
