"I Went to High School With Christian Laettner"

The penultimate Saturnhead is the only one to feature two parallel horizontal panels—a good layout solution to the formal problem presented by the joke. Also unusual in this late-period strip are the shadowing (#1-3) and the action curves in the third panel. The black star has by this point become a motif—ludicrously simple, vaguely haunting, and perhaps totally inscrutable. The artist's signature is hidden. The biographical information in the title is true.

From The Yale Herald, April 17, 1992 (Vol. XIII, issue 12)
