    I’m willing to believe Calvin knows the word phrenologist, but not Tracer Bullet

    Sorry “Trace”, but no detective is needed for this " case".

    The tall brunette seems a little bit furious.

    When I was Calvin’s age I wouldn’t have understood a single thing he said, let alone be able to come up with it myself

    Apparently the dame did some snooping and figured it out on her own. This can’t be good.

    I love these “noir” panels from the past couple of days. Great drawings and dialogue right out of Mickey Spillane.

    I get the impression that he’s reading a detective comic and it’s taken over his imagination.

    Looks like the dame is doing her own investigation of the “lamp incident.”

    I imagine any (of us) brunettes would be “tall” to Calvin… :-P

    I have to love that he knows about “Magnums”… both for firearms, and boozin’ ;-)

    Given Mom’s expression, Tracer Bullet’s phrenologist will be busy for a while studying the new bumps.

    Gotta love that kid’s imagination. Tracer Bullet is one of the many greats in Watterson’s repertoire.

    You have to have some smarts to be a Private Eye, but not so much to pretend to be a Private Eye.

    I usually picture if these story arcs were animated or whatever, the Tracer Bullet sequences would be in black-and-white (for the noir look) while the real world (i.e. the last panel here) would be in color!

    Calvin’s name is Tracer Bullet because he traces bullets.

    Tracer used to have a third Magnum in his desk, but that one ran away to Hawaii.

    Ruben Bolling should do a Tracer Bullet/Sam Roland (The Detective Who Dies) crossover.
