This is one of my favorites. I love quoting the alien :D
Heh poor Calvin, what a cliffhanger, not a good one for a 6-year-old to read, I imagine.
“I could feel my spine shatter… it hurt… a lot.”
This was definitely during the Dark Age of comic books, when anti-heroes were all the rage and excessive violence, sex, blood and gore clumsily tried to cover up mediocre writing.
I’m shocked Universal Press allowed Watterson to visually depict someone shattering someone’s spine with a gun.
