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.
I just love this one for a totally awkward reason: Watterson was giving all the regular characters a break from actually BEING there. Sure we all love Calvin and Hobbes and everyone, but Watterson shows off his true talents of drawing in this one. Plus this situation he drew was so normal in the comic books at the time what he drew was honestly average at the time.
