Trippy SPPs



I'm back briefly with one totally trippy silent penultimate panel.

Frazz by Jef Mallet

While visually interesting, doesn't this distract from the gag a little?

And doesn't the Frazz silhouette look like something from a Krazy Kat background?

Kinda looks like that scene from The Terminator when the nuke hit.
Freaky.

Probably because he wishes he was Bill Waterson.

Bill Waterson?...I know this Frazz character was at one point compared, in looks to
Calvin. But what does the graphics in this strip have
in common with Calvin and Hobbs, or Bill Waterson's art?

Very visually interesting, very distracting. I like to see cartoonists try something new though, so I don't want to be too critical.

It looks exactly like what Calvin would look like, three to five years after Calvin and Hobbes. Complete visual ripoff.

Watterson did do some silhouette panels like that, occasionally as SPPs. They also appeared in his Sundays, though not as SPPs (IIR).
