Longtime readers of Frazz know that precocious student Caulfield likes to dress up as a literary figure for Halloween. His oblique hints at his costume and his teacher's muddleheaded attempts to guess the nature of his holiday garb have become a cherished part of the run-up to every dorky goth-kid and sexy cat's favorite night.
This year, we think creator Jef Mallett has made it too easy. Frazz's "frosty" comment must mean that Caulfield will be appearing as beloved cinematic snowman "Jack Frost" (either the psychotic one, or the less homicidal, more sadly paternal version in the Michael Keaton remake). Now, the more annoying among you will object that said snowman is a creature of the silver screen, not the golden page. Well to that, we rebut: have you read the novelization by Alan Dean Foster (probably)? Well, neither have we, but we're sure it's a rip-snorting good yarn.
Meanwhile, if anyone's curious, this year I will be delighting my new GoComics co-workers by dressing as Bill Cosby's Ghost Dad.
