Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for October 18, 1987
Calvin as Spaceman Spiff: A dazed Spaceman Spiff crawls from the smoking wreckage of his ship! Our hero now regrets not buying a towing rider on his insurance policy. The courageous Spaceman Spiff has been captured by the hideous Zorgs of Planet x-13! Led through the dank corridors of the dungeon, Spiff looks in vain for an opportunity to escape! Our hero is brought before the Zorg Despot! Zorg Despot: So this is the famed space explorer Spiff! I'be waited a long time for this moment, earthling scum! You have knowledge we need. Cooperate and we'll kill you rather painlessly. Calvin: Let's dispense with the pleasantries, you twisted space crustacean. What is it you want from me? Zorg: A summary of Lewis and Clark's expedition to the pacific! Miss Wormwood: You didn't read the assignment, did you Calvin? Calvin: Ha! Wild Zontars couldn't drag that information out of me! Do your worst!
