    Tough being a target.

    (Spoiler: there is nothing funny about this arc.)

    Definitely one of the saddest and most brutally honest storylines of C&H, next to the baseball one.

    All about the reality of school bullying. Got to show it to get people to talk about it, and hopefully motivate them to eliminate it from schools.

    Kids need to have the confidence to tell people when this happens—-and the people they tell need to be empowered to actually do something to stop it!

    I would love to see a Calvin/Fort Knox crossover where Betty Wu does the same thing to Mo that she did to Kurt.

    I love the subtle use of lower case text in Moe’s lines. It really gives him a less intelligent feel.

    I believe this story arc is the first time I heard the term, “Mandibles of death”. Go get ’em Hobbes.

    Lovely how Moe’s “gentle persuasion” works on Cal! :D

    There was a kid like this in my neighborhood and everyone hated him but I saw his home life because I lived across the street from him. His mom was usually passed out drunk and his dad was a mean drunk who beat him; his older brother would beat him and his older sister always had a different sleazy guy with her. Unfortunately, a lot of kids are products of their environment.

    The first story arc I ever read. (My first C&H book was “Scientific Progress Goes ‘Boink’”)

    Very much the same in my first 8 years of school, and that was 50 years ago

    A funny gag, but in the real world Moe would make a visit to the principle.

    Always convinced myself that I wasn’t going to sink to their level. Not that i din’t know how to fight, or was afraid to. Only time I fought back did not end well. It wasn’t until until I snapped one night, after being tapped by one of them while driving, that it ended. I ran him off the road. I had, the prior week, had already had encounters with two others of his ‘crew’. I saw him two days later. Told him I was glad he was OK. Then told him, that we were no longer on the playground. That I no longer had to answer to my parents or teachers. and that if he , or his friends, EVER bothered me or mine again, I would kill him. I was never bothered again.

    Calvin – you need some self-defense help against that bully. Go watch Ralphie in the Christmas Story!

    This arc is definitely some of Bill’s boldest storytelling.

    My experience w/ bullies was that they are far less verbal than in this example.

    I beat up guys like Moe when I was Calvin’s age. They’d pick on someone and I’d take them on. Being a cute little girl made the authorities disbelieve the “Moes” and then they would be the strap on top of it. Meanwhile, my mom would get after me for coming home with torn clothes. We superheroes can have it tough, sometimes. :P
