In college we used to have a Halloween party every year. They met with varying levels of success, but it seemed appropriate that this should be echoed somehow in the comic strip. This is also one of the strip’s that really establishes President Czar’s complete indifference towards what his employees have to say.
Blind Professor and Dr. Bones make cameos again in this week’s strip. Dr. Bones seems vitally important for a Halloween strip, obviously. Both characters became fixtures of the Professor Hobo universe, though rarely featured in strips.
