Spaceman Spiff is the main protagonist of Spaceman Spiff, a daily comic strip created by Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes fame), which was published in the school newspaper The Torch between 1979 and 1980.
Spaceman Spiff’s planet Zorg is routinely ravaged by hostile alien ships, so Spaceman Spiff uses his Graysuit to launch himself out of his spaceship and attacks the alien ships. Spaceman Spiff’s weapon of choice is a ray gun, but Spaceman Spiff also uses other weapons such as an ice-ray and a bomb that causes massive destruction and expolosions. Spaceman Spiff always defeats his enemies and makes it back to his spaceship safely. Spaceman Spiff regularly saves Spacewoman Jane and calls her “my love”. Spaceman Spiff also regularly crashes on planets, where he has to battle hostile alien ships and wild animals.
