There is a very small, ﬁnite amount of space on the funny pages — and it’s shrinking all the time — so comic strip real estate is very precious. The funny pages don’t expand when there are a lot of good strips in the market, so when somebody gets a spot, it means that someone else just lost one.

The latest incarnation, Spaceman Spiff, followed a blustering interstellar adventurer and his dull-witted assistant, Fargle. A sarcastic send-up of classic sci-ﬁ strips, Spiff paid backhanded homage to ﬂashy space heroes like Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon, while tapping into the Star Wars craze.
