Though a bit later than usual, this week was the week that students received their school portraits. It might seem a small thing, but even with uniforms these pictures are snapshots of a particular moment in time.
Which isn’t to say that this most recent classic Calvin and Hobbes strip is quite the same thing. It looks a bit like Hobbes got ahold of a camera and Calvin did his best to do every awkward facial expression imaginable. It’s definitely a chance to showcase Bill Watterson’s great skill at drawing faces.
I’d be interested to see if there was any connection between this strip and the cover of the tenth anniversary collection.
